You were not given the operating manual for how your body/mind works. Unlike other animals that are born with their basic movement patterns in place at birth, you must acquire your self-organization. It takes a long apprenticeship with gravity and the environment to integrate your musculo-skeletal system and your nervous system, with the physical and social environment in which you live.
Gravity and the conditions you were raised in govern how you live and move. As you grow, you tend acquire patterns of behavior that profoundly affect your comfort. Injury and pain place significant stress on your body. It takes a lot of learning and diligent practice to rid your self of inefficient patterns of movement, compensations, and ways of moving that work against your living with ease. The patterns you live with will not be given up until you acquire a better way of acting to replace the old.
