Unfortunately, many occupations such as nursing, construction and factory work can place significant demands on your back. Even routine office work can cause or worsen back pain. There are many factor that can contribute to  back pain at work. For example:

  • Force. Exerting too much force on your back, such as by lifting or moving heavy objects can cause injury.
  • Repetition. Repeating certain movements can lead to muscle fatigue or injury.
  • Posture. Slouching exaggerates your back’s natural curves, which can lead to muscle fatigue and injury.
  • Weight gain. Extra weight around the mid-section, as this tends to pull the pelvis forward and create stress on the lower back.

Most back pain goes away on its own in a few weeks. However, it sometimes signals a more serious problem. If your back pain keeps coming back, see a medical professional you may have an injury that could require treatment.
