There is a long history of traditional manual jobs being associated with occupational health risks, however it is increasingly recognised that this now extends to office jobs that are more common in the 21st century. Working all day on a PC may have have worse consequences (especially when paired with a poor posture) than working on a machine in a factory or on a production line. The back, neck, spine, shoulders and legs can all suffer as a result of poor posture often associated with seated jobs. The risks related to labouring jobs, driving and maintenance work are different in nature to those who have more sedentary occupations and often require different treatment strategies.
