Mintel's Michelle Strutton said that one of the major reasons for the high incidence of back pain among the young adults was long stretches of time spent sitting in front of TV and computers. "Too much time sitting, weakens muscle tone and this can lead to back pain. Many of Britain's youngsters lead a sedentary lifestyle and lack of sport may well be contributing to back pain as well as poor posture", she said.
