Back Pain After Long Sitting?
Doctor, I want to ask why my back is often tired or has aches / pains? If it’s like that I ask a friend to help press my back (my position on my stomach) until I hear a “crack” sound on the spine, then it feels comfortable. For your information, I work every day to sit down. Thus, I hope the doctor can help. Thanks.
Hello Milani, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Back pain can occur due to many possibilities, here are some of them:
Disorders of muscles and ligaments (connective tissue that connects bones to bones or connects joints), for example due to frequent lifting of heavy objects, sports injuries, sitting position, standing, poor work. Disorders of the spine, for example when there is a bone curvature abnormality (scoliosis, lordosis, kyphosis), fractures or cracks in the spine, infection of the spine Disorders of the joints between the vertebrae, for example in conditions of osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis. , for example, in a herniated nucleus pulposus that presses on the spinal cord
Doing pressure on the back until the bones sound is not recommended to be done without supervision from a skilled doctor. If the pain you feel is due to a fracture or injury to the spine, doing so can worsen your condition and cause disability.
In your case, it is likely that your back pain is due to a sitting position or poor working position. You can try to do any of the following:
Improve your sitting position. You must sit in a straight back position (do not bend or tilt to the side) Use a chair with a good back that can support your back well Perform muscle stretches every 1-2 hours when you are sitting, especially stretching the muscles of the back and waist Avoid lifting heavy objects, if you have to lift heavy objects, make sure you lift from a squatting to standing position and not from a bent position.To help reduce back aches and pain, you can lie down and compress your back with a warm compress
If the pain persists, you should consult a general practitioner or an orthopedic specialist for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
