Back: Only if it prevents overall exercise and movement because of pain... Some good activities for chronic back issues - swimming, lower impact walking, core strengthening with trainer or therapist.

Workout issues: Bad posture is an issue if you are in a program that needs work out. You can still modify by finding a program that helps with your posture.
