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).
