This infographic from Inversion Table Review Blog has 10 very important habits that can cause back pain.
They are simple every day movements that can greatly affect your back.
Sitting for too long is the classic one and one I think young children are doing far too much of that nowadays.
Having poor posture. When we were young you were awarded posture belts for good posture at school. They don’t seem to do that now.
Skipping exercise. Again the younger generation seem to prefer to sit with their iPhones which seems to have become the norm now.
Overlooking an unhealthy diet. With so many ready meals available, it has also become the norm to just buy a meal to pop in your microwave or oven but until home cooking is taught from an early age I don’t think this will alter quickly.
Sleeping on an old mattress. This is a fairly new idea to alleviate back pain. We do change ours regularly but was something that you probably didn’t do years ago,
Wearing high heels. I’m afraid I was very guilty of that but the fashion now is easy to follow in low or flat heels when not out on the town.
Letting stress build up. This is something I have written about before and is definitely applicable for people in any type of pain.
Watching too much tv. I guess this applies to point three and skipping exercise as so many people just watch some of screen for hours on end.
Ignoring back pain. This is very very important as the longer you leave it before you seek advice or help the harder it will be to sort the problem out.
