There are three general types of back pain that can cause you discomfort and irritation while at work:
- Manual labour back pain: this is inherent in jobs that require heavy manual labour such as lifting objects and repetitive bending. Employees who perform strenuous work are more susceptible to developing a whole series of back pain over time, so they have to be extra careful about how they treat their spine.This can be cervical, thoracic or lumbar. We recommend the Backrack Lumbar belt to manual workers.
- Sitting back pain: this type of pain is felt by majority of office workers all over the world who are confined to their chairs for most of their work day. If you are not watchful about the way you sit, type and write on your desk, you can develop skeletal, muscular and posture-related problems that can all affect your efficiency. We recommend the Backrack Chair support to help this.
- Driving back pain: perhaps the worst kind of back pain, this is brought about by long hours of sitting in the cramped driver’s seat while manipulating vehicular controls and keeping your eyes on the road for long hours at a time. Not only do drivers experience constant back pain, they are also exposed to psychological and emotional stresses as well. We recommend the Backrack Car Seat support to help this.
Back pain may not seem all that important, but it can actually impact negatively on your productivity and quality of output.
In fact, companies lose money just because their employees take time off to deal with their back problems.
At the end of the day, what is important is that you keep yourself aware of the back problems that may arise out
of your work and take preventive steps to minimize back pain and injury. To treat and prevent cervical, thoracic and lumbar back pain use the Backrack System and avoid the symptoms of back pain in the comfort of your own home.
