Back pain in young people rising, say experts

Health experts say our sedentary lifestyles are leading to an increasing number of young people suffering with back pain.

Research by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) found almost half of 16-24s are living with neck/back pain.

Last year's figures show that 28% of 18 to 24-year-olds suffered with back pain.

The rise in back problems in young people is being blamed on the fact that we sit at our desks for longer and are doing less exercise.

The BCA claims that on average, people spend 10 hours sitting and fewer than two hours being active.

It says that each day we spend 1.8 hours on our phones and tablets, 3.7 hours on our laptops and computers and 1.4 hours gaming.

i find using the mouse for long periods gives me numb fingers, apparently there is a mouse gel mat available which i may get to see if it remedies the situation.

bud sounds like it could be repetitive strain, if you get no joy from the mouse gel mat then see a doctor as you can get trapped nerve problems which are a real nusiance
