''Hunched back, tail tucked under, head down''

..depending on when this behaviour is displayed and to whom (and taking account of other body language) it often means ..
..trying to make oneself look small and no threat.
..fearful , uncertain how to behave or what is expected..
..pain or discomfort

That description fits my dog when she was suffering from a slipped disc and in severe pain.

She has recovered now.
