 Spending Countless Hours in Front of TV or PC Leads to Back Pain

More than a third young adults suffer from back pain due to spending hours sitting in front of television, a new survey revealed.

The survey was conducted by research company Mintel which found that over 34 percent of young adults between 16 and 24 years of age complained of back problem compared to 38 percent of the elderly over 65 years of age.

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.
