Back pain: What are the best exercises to do at home to help alleviate the pain?

Other causes could include a herniated disc, muscle strain, a degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, not being in shape or other medical conditions.

A common reason why a person may feel pain in their back is largely due to bad posture whilst seated.

Sitting in a slouched or hunched over position can put strain on the discs, the fluid-filled cushions that protect the vertebrae from rubbing together.

Owner of Your Pilates Physio, Lyndsay Hirst said: “Often, it is sustained postures that tend to lead back pain, so as long as you get up regularly, change positions and exercise often, your risk of developing back problems from sitting on the sofa drastically reduces.”
