Why Does My Low Back Hurt When I Sit At My Desk?


When you sit, your hip flexors are short and tight. For a lot of people who work at desks, hip extensions are super important. We’re going to focus on lower back assessment, treatment and exercises, looking at what causes lower back pain.

Hip extensions are also important in order to keep your spine balanced. Spinal flexion aggravates the issue, so we would start by addressing that posture. Spinal flexion and hip extension are the main causes of hip lower back pain.


Can Sitting At Desk Cause Hip Flexor Pain?


A key correction point is learning how to sit with proper posture and maintaining a high level of spinal mobility including flexing, extending, and rotating your spine.

Sitting with a slouched position, low back posture tighten hip flexors (psoas major, tensor fascia latae [TFL]) and gluteal muscles. Sitting for long periods of time tightens the hip flexor muscles and gluteal muscles, which often leads to lower back pain.
