Nalli R. Uvaraj

"Common health problems among the urban IT employees, in the 25-35 age group, across genders, are back ache, and neck pain. Frequent symptoms are easy fatiguability, reduced performance levels, pain in the limbs, head ache and giddiness. Contributing factor is mainly work stress, due to volume of work, targets and deadlines. Other factors are working environment, lifestyle, and food habits. Recovery usually demands total rest for period ranging from 10 to 15 days. However, we find that many patients return to work before fully recovering because of work pressure and thus delay their recovery."

Dr Nalli R. Uvaraj, Associate Professor of Spine Surgery, Spine Surgery Unit, Madras Medical College & Govt General Hospital, Chennai
