P – I have lower back pain.
D – Please show me where it hurts.
P – It hurts here…
D – There are a variety of causes for that kind of pain.
D – Do you think you know the cause of the pain?
P – Recently, I have been gaining some weight in my belly (around my waist).
D – Yes, I notice that you are slouching too.
D – Your pot belly is putting strain on your lumbar spine area. That area is now thicker than it used to be. Therefore, your lumbar spine is having more difficulty supporting your posture.
D – I suggest that you lose some weight, and try not to slouch.
