In brief: Walking on 2 legs

Back pain has plagued humans ever since we determined to walk upright on two legs.
While there are some types of back pain more commonly affecting women because of childbirth, such as sacroileitis (inflammation of the pelvic joint), back pain remains common in both genders. Jobs which require repetitive bending or heavy lifting are rough on the backs of women and men.
