  • 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.

    • 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.

        • Back pain is considered chronic if it remain 3 months or longer. It can come and progress, frequently bringing short-term relief, followed by frustration. Dealing with chronic back pain can be mostly trying if you don’t know the cause.

          Pain in the low back can be a effect of conditions affecting the bony lumbar spine, discs between the vertebrae, ligaments around the spine and discs, spinal cord and nerves, muscles of the low back, inner organs of the pelvis and abdomen, and the skin covering the lumbar area.

          Nonsurgical Treatments for Chronic Back Pain

          Physical Therapy
          Mindfulness and Meditation
          Diet
          Lifestyle Modifications
          Injection-based Treatments
          Alternative Treatments

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