Today we no longer need to hunt and gather food, and now all that sitting is causing us to have sore backs.
Many diseases and health conditions can place stress on our bodies. Many diabetics have sore backs due to inactivity and malfunctioning pancreases.

Pregnancy can also cause back pain, as women are now carrying around several extra pounds. All of the weight is placed on the lower back. Some of this weight even places stress on the bladder, kidneys, and bowels which further increases discomfort.
