Sitting tends to put more pressure on the spine than standing, especially if you are sitting on the ground without anything behind your back to support it. People tend to get lazy and lose their posture when sitting, typically by slumping forward. Slumping forward causes the lower back muscles to work harder to keep the body upright, eventually becoming overworked and causing pain as we age.
