back pain after extensive walking

I am 61 years old, semiretired. I recently got a security job to supplement my income. At this point, I felt totally healthy.

I was introduced to continuous walking and after 4 hours had to depart because of feet hurting and lower back aching terrifically.

I am 6'3

Re: back pain after extensive walking

The first thing to consider is the shoes and inserts you have in your shoes. Feet problems can manifest in back pain. Now that I've had back problems I'm very careful about the shoes I wear and I went to a footwear store that made some custom inserts I can use in any shoes (my podiatrist sent me there since my insurance did not cover inserts).
