    Explanation
    Slouching in the chair can cause backache when sitting at a computer because it puts strain on the muscles and ligaments in the back. Slouching can lead to poor posture, which can result in increased pressure on the spinal discs and vertebrae. This can cause discomfort and pain in the back, particularly in the lower back. It is important to maintain proper posture while sitting at a computer to prevent backache and other related issues.
