According to the Iranian Physiotherapy Association, 85% of the population suffers from back pain or types of musculoskeletal disorders.

“A recent research conducted by the association shows 20% of all Iranian students suffer from at least one type of disorder. The association studied a sample of 5,000 students,” said Fatemeh Farmani, a senior member of the IPA Salamat News reported.  

“The main reason behind the problem is children and adults addiction to smartphones, obesity and sedentary lifestyles,” she said. She said the cartilage in the growth plate stops turning to bone between the ages of 11-13 in girls and 13-15 in boys and therefore many skeletal disorders are preventable before turning 13 to 15.
