8 in every 10 Americans will suffer from back pain throughout their life. Learn why
As a society we fail to move. From a young age, we are spending vast hours of the day bent over a smart phone or parked at a desk focusing in on the screen of our PC.
Gone are the days where we spent every light hour of the day, on push bikes or in the courtyard playing ball sports. Video and computer games are par for the course nowadays.
With a bit of luck, we mature into young adolescents and shift some of our focus away from video games and onto our studies. The demands and pressure placed on young kids is growing by the year, with hours and hours per week spent fixed to a desk studying away in the pursuit of making competitive grades.
As we mature into young adults, more of the same awaits us with university demands continuing to ensure a sedentary life. For most this only worsens as we enter the workforce, spending long hours in fixed positions as we make our impression on our new employers.
In attempt to zone out and unwind from work we head straight home to sit in from of the TV tuning into one of the many TV series that entertain and distract us from the daily pressures.
When do we move?
Simply put, for most Americans we do not!! We sit all day at work, we sit all evening at home, then we lay all night as we sleep.
Muscles support our postural structure. Muscles support our back.
Ironically the muscle group the plays the most significant role in supporting our back is the group we spent the most time resting on - Our backsides (gluteal muscle group)
So, if we are never using this muscle group because we are always sitting on it - would it not be natural for this muscle group to become weak, to noticeably atrophy away? Yes.
Back pain is a billion-dollar industry, with money pouring into doctors’ surgeries, physical therapy and chiropractic clinics all of the country each year. Not to mention the mega dollars spent on pain relief for the sufferer desperately seeking pain relief.
Millions of dollars pour into research on why so many people suffer from ongoing back pain. However, there is no mystery as to why 8 in every 10 American’s will suffer from back pain at some point in their life. We become weak in the very areas integral to supporting our backs due to the lack of time and focus on activities that use our bodies functionally – Now that’s not to say there might not be something more sinister going on which its why it’s crucial to get multiple opinions to help diagnose and help you, however, in most cases there will be a form of muscular atrophy.
