In brief: Badly
Biomechanically, a large abdomen causes the spine to curve, causes the posture to significantly alter and places major stress of all of the trunk and back structures.
One of the initial treatments for back pain is weight loss, postural improvement and core training of the muscles in the truck, back and upper thighs.
