When you look at any statistics relating to back pain within the UK, one thing stands out. That is that this type of pain is a huge issue, affecting a massive section of the population. This is due to factors such as the shift towards more sedentary roles within the workplace, like sitting at a computer. A lack of movement coupled with being in one position for prolonged periods, can inevitably lead to a number of problems.

The effects of bad posture are responsible for many incidences of chronic pain and discomfort of the back, neck and muscles, and result in millions of absences from work per year. This fact is confirmed by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), who assert after polling hundreds of thousands of people living in the UK, that musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, account for a significant proportion of prolonged absences. Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions include a wide range of bone and joint complaints, causing more painful health issues than any other ailment. Of course illnesses such as coughs and colds are to blame for a substantial chunk of time off work, although MSK’s are more likely to linger and develop into long term conditions.

The UK has one of the highest rates of absenteeism in Europe, with MSK’s being at the heart of the problem in many cases. Deskbound workers are often not given the health and safety consideration reserved for other occupations which involve more strenuous physical activity. Office workers themselves frequently disregard this aspect of their daily routine, yet they are also at risk of work related health issues.
