  • Lower back pain is one of the most common complications for office workers

    8 out of 10 adults report experiencing lower back pain at some point in their lives. Though some assume that lower back pain is a risk that's primarily faced by those in very physically active lines of work, people in sedentary lines of work also face a real risk of experiencing axial pain.

  • Agreed, Loric2014.

    • As you're in such pain, Kristen Swan, you maybe need to talk to your manager about having more breaks. You're obviously suffering and should be entitled to longer breaks. I think you should do that before resigning. But maybe you have to accept you're in too much pain to carry on with your line of work. There must be a way you could find a job where this doesn't happen so much or so badly.

      Do give what I've said some thought.

      • I deal with this too. I get up during the day at times for meetings, to go to the restroom, etc. But for the most part, I'm sitting. I use a yoga ball chair to try to encourage proper posture and core strength. But every now and then I have a lower back flare up (like right now), where it is painful for me all day everytime I'm sitting.

        • I'm glad to help, Kristen Swan. How have things worked out now? Did you talk to your manager and arrange longer breaks?
