Your lower spine, also known as the lumbar spine, supports most of your body’s weight during normal daily activities, such as walking, standing, running, and even sitting. Because your lower back must carry so much weight and is responsible for moving your body in many different directions, about 80% of women and men in the United States have an episode of lower back pain at some point in their lives. You’re more likely to develop back pain if you’re overweight or engage in manual labor.
