The Facts about Muscle Pain
Did you know, according to the Bone and Joint Decade (Global Alliance for Musculoskeletal Health), “globally, the number of people suffering from musculoskeletal conditions has increased by 25 percent over the past decade”? More and more of us are suffering with musculoskeletal conditions, which are quite simply, muscle and skeletal problems, and the way we work and live our daily lives today could be a huge aspect in the way we use our bodies. There are more of us hunched over a computer screen, working at an office, and pour over iPads, which is having an ill-desired effect on our posture and the way we hold ourselves.
Recently, the BBC have written an article titled Is back, neck and muscle pain hurting the UK economy?, which suggests that office work can be a great cause in musculoskeletal health problems. They outline that “Almost 31 million days of work were lost last year due to back, neck and muscle problems, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS)”.
