Every second person at our workplace is cribbing about back pain on a daily basis. Because it is easy. But are we realising the long-term repercussions of the same? Sitting for long hours at our work desks or smoking cigarettes is only increasing our back pain and we are least bothered.

Here are a few ways we can deal with our back pain.

1. Increase your calcium and vitamin D intake

Smoking is a definitely a serious health risk as we are aware of. But did you know it is also is a big cause of your back pain? Reason to this is that nicotine restricts blood flow to the disks in the spine. This can cause them to dry out, crack, or rupture. It also reduces the amount of oxygen in the blood, which causes a reduction in nourishment to the muscles and tendons in the back.

Carrying heavy laptop bags or suitcases are some common reasons for excess back pain. Try distributing weights equally on both sides of your body. Take some weights off your body when going to work or otherwise to reduce pain.
