Comment of Rashae Smith:
I interviewed Mr.Mackey who resides in Long Island. He is 78 years of age and he is familiar with the term 'back breaker'. He says that's when you work extremely hard to the point of exhaustion. For example working in the farm or exercising hard labor is known as a 'back breaker'.
