Causes of Back Pain


 
Poor Posture

Standing, sitting, or lying down incorrectly will put strain on your spine. Your spine is designed to operate best when it is in a "natural S" shape. Bending this natural S out of shape for long periods of time can often lead to muscle fatigue and back pain. This is why you stretch backwards when you experience back tension. Without thinking, you are trying to adjust your spine back to its natural S shape.
