What is the likely diagnosis?

This is likely to be mechanical back pain.

There are no red flags in the history (suggestive of infection, malignancy or nerve / root compression). The family history of back pain in his father and starting at an early age is interesting and raises possibility of inflammatory back pain. However neither the history nor the examination are typical of inflammatory back pain in Sam.
