It can cause a whole range of health problems and make painful problems even more painful.

Exercising and changing clothes regularly is the way to go, experts say.

Even just going to the gym for an energy boost and then sitting for most of the day isn’t enough.

Regular exercise and not sitting still for too long is the key to better health and less back pain.

ITV’s Tonight program looked at the growing back pain problem: Britain’s invisible crisis? last night.

Several experts explained why so many people are doing so poorly.

But they also gave lots of tips on how to counteract any construction problems and how to overcome back pain.

dr Mike Fray, an expert in ergonomics and physical therapy for 30 years, said: “People who sit much longer have an impact on the musculoskeletal system.

“We lose muscle mass, we lose range of motion. We are essentially evolving into a chair-shaped human.”

He recommended making sure you’re sitting up straight in a firm chair when working from home.

The expert said: “[Have your] Feet nice and flat on the ground, a good, comfortable, supportive position in your suitcase or on your chair, eyes up at the screen, you have a pretty good starting point for your typing or activity.

This should ensure you are in the best position for your back and nip any little things in the bud.

Also, experts advise using standing desks, walking around while on the phone, and setting an alarm to get up and move every 30 minutes.

KEEP MOVE

Professor Vybarr Cregan Reid, an author who has written all about environments and how they transform our bodies, warned of the terrible effects of inactivity.

He said: “Inactivity drives all great killers. So it increases the odds of all this type 2 diabetes, heart disease, quite a lot of cancer, but it also affects mental health.”

You bring your arms into a T-position and then move your knees from side to side, keeping your shoulders on the floor.

She urged people not to stop gentle exercise when they are in pain.

The expert said: “When people feel pain, don’t associate it with harm. Pain is really just a signal. Your body is telling you that something is wrong, something is wrong.”
