Backache is a common complaint affecting people of any age, at any time; even though it is commonly seen in people between 35 to 55 years. Although rare, even children may suffer from back pain, mainly due to incorrect posture and poor lifestyle. In modern times, given our sedentary lifestyle that requires spending long hours on various gadgets and perhaps longer hours at work, backache has become an increasingly common occurrence.
Moreover, most of us do not pay much attention to our sitting or standing postures. Therefore, our spine - which is ideally supposed to be flexible - has to deal with damages caused by wrong posture, bad lifestyle, lack of exercise, excess weight and nutritional deficiencies. Bones, muscles and ligaments soon fail to work synchronously, causing an annoying, dull, aching pain, soreness and stiffness from the neck all the way down to the tail bone, further limiting and restricting movement, and accentuating all back problems.
Severe backache is disabling and interferes with daily life; it is often the leading cause of absenteeism from school and work.
