Youth are a symbol of power and energy. From your family members to your boss everyone expects a lot of energy and ability from younger generation. So, the youth nowadays are expected to do their work in a very smart and quick way.
We all tend to lead a sedentary lifestyle in which we spend atleast 50 hours in a week sitting in front of desktops.
This ultimately leads to acute pain and discomfort, leading to various health conditions such as depression, obesity, pain in the joints and in particular, back pain. It is when a disease named Coccydynia comes into picture.
