10 million work days were lost last year due to back pain at a cost of more than 1 Billion pounds to business.

 

A sedentary lifestyle is only making things worse, as sitting for prolonged periods of time increases the compressive forces on the structure of the spine and muscles leading to increased muscle and joint fatigue and ultimately muscle strain, joint sprain and chronic back, neck and shoulder pain.

 

Around 4.2 million working days were lost by workers aged 50-64 alone in 2014.

 

Those aged 25-34 were absent for 1.89 million days due to back pain, while those in the 35-49 bracket missed 3.86million work days.

 

In 2013 the figure was 7.7 million lost days, up to 9.96 million last year, and is likely to get worse due to the sedentry lifestyle that much of the population leads.

 

If you are one of the many sufferers you may find that chiropractic treatment can help alleviate the pain and get you back to work sooner.
