Are you sitting comfortably?
Bad backs are the cause of 9.3 million lost working days and cost the NHS over £1 billion a year.
A lot of people experience some kind of back pain at some point in their lives and for some, this pain can develop into degenerative spinal disorders which ultimately can cause paralysis or disability. Back injured are the leading cause of work-related disability affecting both men and women of all age groups.
Despite these scary statistics, bad posture, and the back conditions it can cause, can be easily improved through exercise and a correct sitting position.
