A poorly set up working space, neck constantly bent over a smartphone or tablet, and repetitive movements like bending and twisting throughout the day to care for the kids and keep a busy home running smoothly are all familiar scenarios in daily life. Unfortunately, these habits can cause a variety of aches and pains that worsen over time and lead to chronic musculoskeletal pain. In conjunction with World Spine Day 2023, an annual event to help raise awareness about spine health, we would like to shed some light on putting a S.T.O.P. to back pain.
