Sitting and Back Pain

Diana Solares, Physical Therapist with West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says 8 out of 10 people can be experiencing low back pain. She explains poor posture and sitting for a long period of time cause it, because the throbbing muscle suffers from a lot of stress.

“The muscles of the lower back were designed to stabilize our spine, not to be in a seated posture from taking all that stress for upwards of two hours at a time or even more.”
