Office or workplace related back pain is a growing issue among the workforce today. Back pain in the office is the foremost reason most people visit a Chiropractor and the second reason for people missing days in the workplace. Only the common cold keeps more people from work. Statistic show that eight out of ten people will at some point have lower back pain and 1 in 4 currently live with it daily. The pain can cause shorter attention spans, poor sleep, reduced social interaction, headaches, among numerous other side effects.
Modern office jobs contribute to back pain
Sitting at desks all day has only increased the propensity for back pain. There are many factors which contribute to it suck as poor posture while sitting at a desk, holding a phone between your neck and shoulder, and just sitting for 8 or more hours a day. Throw in the time we spend sitting in our cars and on the sofa at home and we have a recipe for lower back problems.
Lets face it, you only have one spine. Taking a few simple steps will help reduce your chances of back pain. Should you begin to experience back pain though, please contact your local chiropractor before it gets worse.
