Is Prolonged Sitting Good for You?

On average we sit up to 10 hours a day at work. In addition to this, we also sit to commute, eat, and to watch television.

Sitting for long periods at a time can have a vast array of health consequences including; increased pressure on our joints and spines, muscle tightness, obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

No wonder we as physios are seeing so many sitting posture related syndromes coming in for treatment. Whether this presents as neck or back pain, repetitive strain of the wrist, hamstring tightness or even sciatica, this can all be helped though correcting poor static postures and moving more!
