Decrease Back Pain while Standing

We often misunderstand the connection between different parts of our body.  Take back pain for instance…when our back hurts, we pay a lot of attention to the area in pain but often ignore the rest.

Because most of us have the desire to stand upright, there is a connection between our back and the rest of the weight-bearing chain.  This also means that back pain can be caused from a number of different things, because it’s all connected. 

If you happen to have back pain while standing, a simple, often overlooked trick you can do is stretch your calves.  If those lower leg muscles are too tight, they will cause the low back to shift and ultimately lead to back pain.
