Back pain is common: we inherited our spines from our animal ancestors who didn't walk upright (or sat in front of the desk for eight hours a day).
Even without an acute injury, back pain results from poor posture, sitting for long periods then overdoing exercise, and moving in a way that subjects your spine to excessive wear and tear.
In cases of severe and debilitating pain, a personal trainer is not a substitute for a consultation with a physiotherapist specialising in such issues.
