The Root Cause Of Neck & Back Pain

Low back pain and neck are two most common complaints that musculoskeletal practitioners such as physiotherapists and chiropractors will treat. These conditions can have many, many different causes – some of which are:

  • Injuries
  • Age-related Factors
  • Social Factors
  • Lifestyle
  • Health Status
  • Physiology & Biology
  • Culture & Sociological Issues
  • Thoughts & Behaviours
  • Genetics
  • Daily Routine
  • Posture

As the average person has become more sedentary with long hours sitting in front of computer screens, these types of injury are on the rise.

This prolonged sitting subjects our bodies to continuous stressors that weakens our neck and low back muscles. This is the key point – it’s fundamentally about WEAKNESS of our muscles!

What Can Help Neck & Back Pain?

Better office ergonomics has helped but hasn’t stopped the increase in low back pain and neck pain from prolonged sitting.

Over time this can cause muscle imbalances, poor joint mechanics and loss of bone density which eventually leads to low back and neck pain.

Ways To Help Neck & Back Pain

  • Change Jobs
  • Get A New Chair
  • Maybe Get A New Desk (like a Standing Desk)
  • A Posture Strap

All this may help but wont work long term – it’s not a great list!

How To Get Rid Of Back Pain (& Neck Pain)

Addressing your postural muscle imbalances is the key.

  • Stretch Tight Muscles
  • Strengthen Weak Muscles

A combination of heat, movement, stretching and strengthening will address these tight muscles and the weak muscles. Once your doctor has given you a correct diagnosis, and verified there are no underling issues (such as tendon damage) you can proceed with a full rehab programme.

Holding a bad posture even if you are sitting or standing for long periods leads to muscle fatigue and eventually weakness that makes you prone to injury. And this is what needs to be targeted with pain relief therapies.

A proper desk set up meaning proper monitor heights and correct office chair is a good place to start.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What Is Ergonomic?

An Ergonomic work (or gaming) environment is one that fits you properly, preventing you stretching or sitting in a stress position. Things like monitor, desk or chair height can mean you are sitting upright and straight, which is beneficial for your posture. If you spend long periods of time in an unnatural position (even if you don’t notice it initially) this can lead to bad posture and back pain issues.

How Do I Stop My Neck Pain?

Correct your Office Ergonomics. The top of your monitor should be at forehead height, and your chair and desk should be at the correct height. You shouldn’t be leaning forward or stretching to use the Mouse or Keyboard. You can also use the following to help stop the issue coming back:

  • Heat Therapy
  • Massage
  • Movement
  • Stretch Exercises
  • Strength Exercises
  • Cold Therapy
  • Bracing / Support
What Is "Office Neck"?

Otherwise known as “Tech Neck” or even “Text Neck” it is pain you experience in your neck. It can be caused by spending a long period of time with bad posture, and your neck in a stress position – most likely sitting at a desk for work, or using other electronic gadgets like phones.
