Sitting puts the spine under more downward pressure than any other position, and when we pile consistently poor posture on top, we have set a course for spinal degradation that can be hard to reverse. This is because the more you sit, the weaker your core gets, and the harder it is for you to maintain good posture. Extricating yourself from this vicious cycle begins by taking breaks from sitting at least once an hour and focusing on the strength of your core stabilizing muscles. Below you will find three simple movements that can be performed from anywhere, designed to lower your risk for back pain.
At Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center, we want to focus on breaking the monotony of sitting for your spine. The more frequently you stand up, stretch or even take your hands off the keyboard and sit up straight, the better for your spine. At our office in Milpitas, we are dedicated to finding solutions that will help you improve your spinal health no matter what line of work you find yourself in; give our office a call to schedule an appointment today.
