Low Back Pain- A growing concern in the modern world..

In today’s fast paced lifestyle, “Sitting has become the new smoking”. Sitting for 8-9 hrs a day comes with its own set of risks. In addition to this, if your job involves lifting, pulling or twisting the spine – all this may contribute to low back pain.

This happens when you sit all day..
