You sit at a desk all day…so why does your back hurt so much?
Lower back pain when sitting is common, but that doesn’t mean it’s unavoidable.
Two hundred years ago, working at a desk job was a privilege afforded to only the top 1% of society. Nowadays, technological advancements (not to mention a global pandemic) mean that the majority of the country works, plays, and spends the bulk of their lives in a seated position.
But that doesn’t mean it’s healthy. Sitting is extremely hard on your back.
If you’re among the millions of people who experience lower back pain when sitting, you might be confused. After all, how can you back hurt when you’ve been relaxing all day?
