back stiffness/pain — The Bump

back stiffness/pain

Hey so my lower back has been getting stiff and hurting when I stand for long periods of time and due to work I stand most of the day. I didn't have this problem before my C-section and the pain/stiffness go away if I sit for 20 mins but does anyone know why it is like this? Is it a side effect from the spinal? or muscles that are stretched out? If so does anyone have any recommendations? thanks 

Re: back stiffness/pain

  • I would think that it may be because your abdominal muscles are weaker than they used to be, and your back is compensating for it when you are standing....but that's just a hunch. I would try to do some exercises to strengthen your abs and see if that helps. GL!
