Is Driving giving you Back pain?

Sitting in the car in the same position for a long period of time can trigger back pain.

If you drive fairly long distances to and from work everyday (driving for over half an hour) or your job specifically involves long hours of driving, you may have experienced back pain-Approximately 30-60% of drivers report back pain that is caused or made worse by driving.

This is not uncommon as driving exposes the body to many different forces including acceleration, deceleration and most notably vibration. Larger heavy goods vehicle drivers are exposed to a lot of vibration and consequently  report more back pain. Driving also involves the use of your feet to control the car’s pedals which means they are not used to help stabilise and support your lower body as they normally would when sitting. A combination of these factors as well as the inadequate design of some vehicle seats can cause back problems for some.
