Three Jobs That Contribute to Back Pain (And What You Can Do About It)
Date:10/24/2013

Marina Del Rey, California (PRWEB) October 24, 2013

No matter what line of work or demographic, chances are there are certain actions that could leave a person susceptible to back pain. DISC Sports & Spine Center (DISC), a leader in the field of spinal health and injury correction, recognizes that prevention and immediate intervention are the keys to healthy living.

For neurological spine surgeon and DISC founder Dr. Robert S. Bray Jr., it’s important for people to understand the importance of rooting out back pain before it’s too late.

“There are few jobs out there that won’t contribute to back pain over the course of time,” said Dr. Bray. “If you sit in an office every day, inactivity and poor posture can wear down your spine and contribute to a chronic injury. For those who are constantly lifting and transporting heavy loads, the threat of an acute injury is exacerbated.”

As a helpful tool, DISC has listed three of the most common types of jobs known to cause back pain, as well as the steps employees can take to improve back health.

Desk Jobs – People who sit in an office every day may suffer spinal damage if they don’t take time to protect themselves. Sitting in one position too long can contribute to deficiencies in spinal posture that create long-term health problems.

More than just sitting up straight, inquire with your employer as to the availability of office chairs that have been rated for their ability to provide lumbar support. Ideally, you should be able to reach your computer with elbows bent at a right angle, and knees at a similar angle pointed toward the floor.

Expert Stretching Tip: Every couple of hours, take a break to stretch. Try standing straight up, raising one arm above your head, and then bending to the opposite side. If you’re doing things right, your ear will rest in the crook of your elbow. Repeat on the other side.
