You’re not alone. You’ve probably read the stats by now about how over 80% of the adult population in this country has lower back pain and how we spend billions every year on it without getting closer to a solution. So, why does it happen?
When my daughter was about 2 years old, I noticed she had perfect posture. When she bent down to pick something up, she bent at her knees instead of bending over at her waist. Though no one who knows me will believe this, I did NOT train her this way- she just did what came naturally. I asked a colleague about it, and she also noticed her children moved with near perfect body mechanics (without being trained).
