Is work a pain?

Research reported by the British Chiropractic Association suggests that people working in jobs they don't enjoy are more likely to suffer chronic low back pain.

The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) has announced on its website that new research carried out in Australia suggests that workers who did not enjoy their job were more likely to suffer persistent low back pain, compared with employees with a more positive attitude.

The research was carried out by an orthopaedic surgeon and rheumatologist from Australia who is reported to have said that: 'Attitude in the workplace and positive thinking has a huge impact on lower back pain'.
 
In line with the BCA, chiropractors recognise that the workplace can be the source of many people's back problems, whether in a manual job or sitting at a desk all day. A BCA survey published in March 2012, found that 15% of people questioned suffering from back or neck pain said that work was the main cause of the problem.

And with so many of sitting at computers these days, it's not surprising that these problems are on the increase. Find out more about better ways to sit at a desk.
