Sex position research may reduce back pain

The findings could help men with lower back pain (LBP) to avoid the triggers that cause pain during sex which can eventually lead to less intimacy with partners.

Researchers from the University of Waterloo, Ontario, said a lack of evidence-based guidelines on how to avoid triggering back pain during sex prompted the research.

Ten healthy male and female couples who had been in their relationship for four years or more were recruited for the study and filmed using an electromagnetic motion capture system while they had sex.
