Much of the back pain that people suffer with is caused by not lifting correctly. One of the main ways this occurs is because people lift objects immediately after getting up from a prone position. This can be very bad for your back. Too much activity after prolonged periods of sitting or lying down can result in back pain. If you have been off of your feet for a while, it is extremely important to wait to pick up anything or do anything aggressive with your back once you stand up.
