Mechanics: Low back pain after standing all day could also be a sign of mild degenerative changes to the lumbar spine. Poor posture and jobs that require excessive lifting can also predispose you to muscle fatigue and injury. It is important to avoid high heeled shoes and have adequate arch supports to decreased stress on the lower back. Be sure to visit your md if the pain persists.
