Hi all,

I wanted to ask about some lower back pain I've been experiencing.

Usually, it's when I've been standing around a bunch (or walking).

I don't have any issues if I get on my bike, go to the gym, have a full workout, etc.

It might just be a "things need to warm up" kind of thing, or possibly a postural thing.

The back pain itself is more of a discomfort/dull pain, and leaning over forward to stretch it out feels more intense than the back pain for a moment, but kind of relieving too once I stretch into it.. kind of like if you've been looking to one side for a long time, and you turn your head to the other side just to move it around.

Is this a sign of bad posture that I need to address, lest I create permanent damage to my spine over the next 10 years, maybe from naturally over-arching my lumbar?

p.s. I've scheduled an appointment with a PT, but wanted to get the hivemind's perspective too.

In general, I have some amount of hypermobility (most noticeable in my shoulders, which dislocate super-easily, if in a precarious position like attempting an overhead squat), and some knee pain... I wonder if that's all linked, or if this is separate... It'd be good to know if there's an overall thing that's exacerbating this, or if the back issue is isolated.

I would have to examine you to determine a more accurate conclusion as to why you are experiencing pain. You mentioned you have hypermobility issues. Perhaps you have some core weakness which may contribute to core instability and postural dysfunction. Let me know what your PT has to say.
