If you stand in the same position all day, you are brutally aware of the fatigue and pain that comes with your job. The body actively dislikes any position that forces it to remain static- no matter how good your posture is, your body is still going to say no at a certain point. While sitting has gotten all the bad rap recently (and for good reason), standing still causes its fair share of spinal degeneration. A person with average-weight, standing with upright posture, is under about 100kg of downward pressure on their spine. If you are unable to change positions frequently, you really start to feel this compression:
This is what eventually leads you to move- to stretch, to sit, to walk around. You simply can't stand it anymore. Well we have an action plan for preventing this fatigue from taking a toll on your spinal health.
And if you sense that all this standing is starting to damage your spine, be sure to give us a call at Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center. We are standing by to help the workers of our Milpitas community keep their spines strong and upright.
