"Certain groups of workers can be more susceptible to back pain than others. Care workers, for example, whose work involves a lot of lifting, twisting and driving between appointments are particularly at risk. The back care charity BackCare estimates that more than 70 percent of unpaid carers in the UK suffer from back pain, which is highly disabling in a third of cases.
Other workers at a heightened risk of back pain include:
office workers who sit at computers for long periods;
long distance drivers;
manual workers who regularly lift heavy weights, such as builders, agricultural or manufacturing workers;
those who spend long periods leaning over to provide treatments such as beauticians."
