Most Common Reasons For Back Pain - Part 1 Lack Of Movement

Lack of movement

Congratulations on taking the time to learn about back pain and how to avoid it. This is Part 1 of our series on the topic.Back pain is a common issue that affects many people worldwide.


One of the most common causes of back pain is a lack of movement. When we don't move enough, our muscles and joints become weak, which can lead to pain and discomfort in the back.


Posture plays a big role

Sitting for long periods, such as when working at a desk, is a common cause of back pain due to a lack of movement. When we sit for a long time, our muscles can become stiff, and our posture can suffer. This can lead to pain and discomfort, especially in the lower back. Activities like looking down at your phone for extended periods, driving for hours without breaks, and a sedentary lifestyle can also contribute to poor posture.

A sedentary lifestyle is another common cause of back pain due to a lack of movement. When we don't engage in regular physical activity, our muscles and joints become weak, which can lead to pain and discomfort in the back. Lack of movement can also cause our bones to become brittle, which can lead to fractures and other injuries.


Back pain can affect mental health

In addition to the physical effects of back pain caused by a lack of movement, there are also mental health effects. Chronic back pain can lead to depression, anxiety, and other mental health problems. It can also lead to difficulty sleeping, which can further exacerbate mental health problems.


How to prevent back pain caused by lack of movement

To prevent back pain caused by a lack of movement, it's important to engage in regular physical activity, such as walking, jogging, or swimming. It's also important to take frequent breaks when sitting for long periods of time and to maintain good posture while sitting.

Maintaining good posture while sitting looks different from person to person. However, a few key points to keep in mind include:

  • Keeping your head over your shoulders.

  • Keeping your shoulders slightly back and down.

  • Keeping your butt touching the back of the chair.

  • Engaging your core slightly.

  • Planting both feet firmly on the ground and avoiding crossing your legs.

  • Avoiding sitting for too long. Take a quick walk, jump, stretch, or get some fresh air every 30 minutes.
