Back pain

Q: Hello! I have been working in a bank for 20 years now and I have been experiencing back pain. How can I reduce the pain?

A: There are several reasons that could cause lower back pain. The main cause is too much sitting (over the years) which pressures the discus in our spine and stretches the ligaments. Sitting tightens and shortens hip flexors and gluteus muscles which exhausts deep lower back muscles. Additionally, women often sit with their legs crossed, which further increases the risk of back injuries.

You should avoid sitting for longer periods of time because it decreases muscle activation. Try moving in short intervals throughout the day. Contact a professional if you experience: a burning sensation or pain so strong you cannot sleep, a constant pain that remains unchanged even when you change positions, pain that spreads to your leg, strength-loss in your leg, if you are unable to stand on your toes or heels without falling, stitching pain in your lower back while sneezing or coughing.
