    Watch your back !
    thinks Dude Hyderabadi...,

    'Don't hunch like that... Sit up straight !'... now how many times have u heard that !? We've all never bothered to pay attention to that.. did we? I'm guessing.. not. Not many of us have any idea about how darn important our back is. Believe me.. every single action of yours affects the back.

    One of the most common back problems is called 'The slipped disk' (click for more details). It's more common in the lowermost part of ur back which I believe is the most strained part of your body. I won't go into much detail but this is what I want to say. Most people think that back problems are for old people but this problem can happen to anybody. Everybody needs to be careful.

    Just a few precautions you can take to avoid this:

    ** Listen to your body when n where you have to sit for long. If you are not comfortable that means your chair or your posture is not right. Try getting a new comfortable chair and/or sit in the right posture.

    ** If your city's got bad roads... I say try not to drive much or drive slowly and carefully while sitting upright and not hunch much. Best stick to public transport than drive a two wheeler.

    ** Recent research shows that sitting upright while using a computer is also not safe as it stresses the disks in your back a lot. The correct position would be 135 degrees backward.

    ** Don't sit in front of your PC for more than an hour at a stretch. Just walk around for 2 mins and then come back.

    It would be unwise n uncool to think that this cannot happen to you.. cause if it did.. then believe me.. life will never be the same again.
