Back Pains? Australopithecus May Have The Answers

Recently, anthropologists studying the remains of a female Australopithecus, nicknamed Issa, discovered that the early hominin had skeletal structures suggesting that she walked upright like a human, but also climbed like an ape. This near-complete reconstruction of Issa’s lower back provides more clues about how early humans evolved to stand upright, but also forms the basis of why modern humans have so many common complaints related to the spine.
