The Negative Effects of Sitting All Day

If you have a job or a hobby that requires you to sit for extended periods of time, it can be taking a toll on your health. For some occupations, such as office work, driving, computer jobs, or others, sitting is just par for the course. There may be very little you can do to up and change your occupation. But, you may already know your job and all of the time sitting in one place or one position is causing your spinal problems. The more the hours tick away and you are stationary, the harsher the effects on your lumbar spine.

The pressure you put on your lumbar spine can be compounded if you are sitting wrong or have a chair that does not offer the support you need. Even if you so have the best chair and are diligent about sitting properly, any extended time sitting can be compounding your lumbar spine pressure and pain.

One recommendation for limiting the pain and pressure is to get up and move around as frequently as possible. Even just getting up once an hour and walking across the office or getting out of the car can make a huge impact on how your lumbar spine feels at the end of the day. For those who haven’t been able to take the necessary precautions or get up and move around as frequently as they know they should, or for those who never realized how years of sitting at work has negatively affected their back health, there is still help.
