Back Pains.

Back pain is a common problem for runners that can arise from the constant pounding of the feet, sending vibrations up through the legs and hips to the spine. Furthermore the biomechanics of running up hills and at unusual angles can lead to postural changes which demands greater stress on your back muscles.
