It’s generally accepted that back pain is part of the ageing process, however, at the OCC we’re seeing children as young as six with back pain. We have patients coming to us with nagging, severe or recurring pain. In some of the more severe cases, the pain significantly impacts on their daily life and activities. The more common causes are bad posture, carrying heavy bags on one shoulder, sleeping on the stomach and not stretching before exercising.

These simple tips can help us and our children avoid back problems:

• Spend less time, sitting in front of the TV or playing computer games

• Avoid lying on your back while watching TV

• Sit upright at your desk and when you’re walking around – it’ll make you feel taller as well as being better for your back

• If you’re carrying a heavy backpack to school or work, use both straps to spread the weight evenly

• Bend your knees and keep your back straight when lifting heavy objects
