Many of us have experienced aches or pains from either sitting at the desk or for no real reason at all! These are what we describe as “common complaints” – aches or pains or small nagging issues that we all experience every now and again.
There are many different injuries that fall under the common complaints – these are injuries such as non specific lower back pain – this may be caused by sitting in a bad posture at your computer for a prolonged period of time. This may cause joint stiffness and subsequently muscle tightness and therefore pain. This type of injury is seen and successfully treated every day at Advantage PT.
Common injury complaints can often start out as just a nagging issue and then develop into a real problem. It is therefore important to seek advice from your Physical Therapist at the first sign of any ache or pain.
