We all define that differently.
Sometimes our activities are taking in the groceries… or loading the dishwasher…
Sometimes it’s being active.
And sometimes… it’s as simple as getting up out of that chair you’ve been sitting in when working from home.
And it doesn’t take a trauma for back pain to strike, holding you back from these simple activities.
In fact, prolonged sitting can be as hard on your back as the trauma of heavy lifting or professional sports.
Staying in The Game
There are a few things you can do to stay healthy and productive while you work. Athletes across all sports from weekend-warrior to professional follow this plan to stay in the game:
Get active with daily exercise.
Practice daily light stretching.
Receive routine chiropractic care.
Together, this plan can reduce back pain from the spine (discs, joints and muscles) and help you to manage your daily routines.
What’s more, researchers from SPINE found that periodic chiropractic care may be able to detect, evaluate, and prevent future episodes of work related neck and back pain.
To recap, here’s what you want to know about sitting and chiropractic care:
- Sitting is one of the most stressful positions for your spine.
- You can keep your spine healthy with a combination of daily exercise, daily light stretching, and routine chiropractic care.
- Periodic chiropractic visits can also help achieve better long-term outcomes.
