Back pain linked to too much time spent watching TV

25th July 2012

Research company Mintel has suggested that young adults are suffering from back pain because of the fact they spend hours slumped in front of the television.

They found that the proportion of 16 to 24-year-olds suffering from pain was similar to that of pensioners - some 34% of 16 to 24-year-olds compared with 38% of those aged over 65, with sedentary lifestyle a contributory factor. Figures also show that overall two fifths of people in Britain across all age groups suffer from back pain.
