Work Postures Are Particularly Difficult for Tall People

Many tall people have back problems. But the main causes of middle back pain are the stooped postures necessary because everybody else in the world is so short! The rest of us suffer similar pain in the upper back from being hunched over computers and mobile phones so much of the day. Working on the computer in bed is a common cause of pain in the middle back and the high lumbar area. 

Tall people may also develop a sway back (called lordosis of the spine) from weak abs muscles. In turn, this may cause lower back pain from the forward pelvic tilt making the lower facet joints bear too much load.
