People can experience back pain for a variety of reasons. Pain in any part of the back could be attributed to poor posture, core weakness, muscle fatigue, or sitting and standing for extended periods of time.
If your back pain is chronic, you may want to see your doctor or physical therapist for further treatment. You may also consider trying some stretches and exercises to manage back pain. As always, ask your doctor before trying any new exercise program.
