Back Care Awareness Week 2022 – Post Pandemic
Has the covid-19 lockdown damaged your back?

How the lockdown has wreaked havoc on peoples back health and caused a rise in back related pain and injuries

A recent survey has shown that 49% of people are now experiencing chronic back pain compared with before the pandemic struck where the figure stood at 30%. This 19% rise is being blamed on the change in people’s daily routines and physical activity patterns during the covid-19 lockdowns. There are a number of different reasons for this increase in chronic back pain.

One of the most significant changes to people’s lives during the covid-19 lockdown was the increase of people working from home. Poor posture whilst sitting and working on your computer or laptop is one the main causes of back related problems in young adults. Lounging around at home and not sitting upright and hunching over your computer for long periods of time can place excessive pressure on your back. Overtime this pressure builds up on your spinal cord and causes misalignments which can cause pain and injuries including slipped discs and pressure on the nerves in your lower back causing sciatica. Working from home is thought to be worse for peoples back health compared to working in an office. This is thought to be because the amount of time sat in front of a computer screen without breaks can be significantly more for people working at home compared to people working in an office. Some believe that this is due to the lines of work and pleasure becoming blurred when you are working at home meaning you might spend more time on hunched over your computer without standing up for longer periods of time than you would do if you were working in an office environment.

Working from home isn’t the only thing to blame for people’s poor posture habits during the pandemic. Rates of depression have increased dramatically during the covid pandemic. Depression not only causes us to feel low and not ourselves, but it can actually affect your posture by making you feel self-conscious causing you to look down more preventing you from standing tall with confidence. This daily effect can cause a decline in your posture and have a big negative impact on your back.

It is also believed that the decrease in physical activity during the pandemic also caused back problems to develop. This lack of exercise can lead to a decrease of muscle mass of key muscles that support your spine. This in conjunction with poor posture habits developed over the pandemic can lead to a significant negative effect upon your back health.
