I am a student. Usually I used to sit more than 8 hours a day in chair. Now a days I am feeling very much pain on regions of backbone and neck. Is this a chance of disk failure?

Dear lybrate-user, sitting for more than 5 hours causes pain in neck and back, in order to avoid it, correct your sitting posture, do not sit folding your legs, do not bend yourself towards front and do not put your head on chair. Sit straight. Apply heat fermentation and do back strengthening excercises to reduce pain.
