8 causes of back pain affecting office workers

Back pain

4. Sciatica

This is the pain radiating along the sciatic nerve, which runs down one or both legs from the lower back. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body. The sciatic nerve begins from nerve roots in the spinal cord in the low back and extends through the buttock area to send nerve endings down the lower limb.

3. Lumbar Disc Disease

This degenerative disease damages the lumbar discs between the vertebrae in the back. This damage eventually causes and inflammation and consequent pains in the area of the lower back. The pains noticeably worsen while walking or standing.

2. Lack of regular exercise

Exercise enhances muscle tissue performance by stimulating blood flow to your tissues. When you move your body, you increase your circulation, sending oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to your tissues. When your tissues do not get enough oxygen, lactic acid is created for use instead. Too much lactic acid in your tissues also causes trigger points to form and is associated with increased muscle tension

1. Back fracture













This occurs when one or more bones in the spine weaken and crumple.
