“Sitting for prolonged periods of time can be a major cause of back pain, cause increased stress of the back, neck, arms and legs and can add a tremendous amount of pressure to the back muscles and spinal discs. The most common cause of lower back pain is postural stress. For this reason, lower back pain is frequently brought on by sleeping in the wrong position, prolonged bending, heavy lifting, or even standing or laying down in a poor, rounded-back position,” said Dr Arvind G Kulkarni, Head of Mumbai Spine Scoliosis & Disc Replacement Centre at Bombay Hospital in Mumbai
“Most working people experience jerk in their knee while getting up from your chair in the office. Such little pains here and there in the joints across the body that gives sometimes mild and other times severe pain.

Even the young generation is becoming a victim of joints pains due to long sitting hours in the office and less physical activity. There are a number of other contributing factors too, the understanding of which can make us aware and avoid such troubling physical inabilities,” said Dr Sanjay Aggarwala, Head-Orthopedics & Traumatology at PD Hinduja National Hospital in Mumbai.
