Sitting Might be Killing you

Long days sitting in your chair at the office may be harming your health, according to a study conducted by U.K. Department of Health and theActive Working Community Interest Company.

Increasing every year in developed countries, employees are sitting more for increasingly longer periods of time. Not only severely injuring your back, it can actually reduce the total potential years of life expectancy. Experts advise tostand up often and walk around the office. This gets the blood flowing in your limbs, especially your legs and back which can experience musculoskeletal pain if they are not kept active and stretched.

In order to fight this discrepancy, stand and work more actively.  Try to get a standing work station so you won’t have the same issues as if you sat all day. You should talk your local chiropractor in Alabama about treatments to keep your spine and other important muscles healthy and flexible. If your simply does not allow standing, you will want to work with a chiropractor to establish stretches and exercises to do before and after work.
