Standing and Sitting: Pain and Chiropractic Care

By Genevieve Cunningham

We live in a world full of sitting. We sit for work and entertainment. We sit in the car and on the trains and on buses. We sit all the time! And when we’re not sitting, we do a lot of standing around. But movement and activity? That’s something that seems to be falling by the wayside. Unfortunately, all of the sitting and standing in place is leading to health problems. Luckily, there may be a little help available. If you’re among those who have to sit and stand often, take a look at why you should consider chiropractic care in your life.

The Dangers of Standing and Sitting

It’s been said that sitting is the new smoking. And standing in the same position for hours on end isn’t far behind. Why is it bad? Standing or sitting for extended hours can cause back pain, foot pain, and even pain in the neck and joints. Sitting, most especially, can lead to poor circulation, weight gain, the formation of blood clots, and a heightened risk of various diseases. While sitting and standing can’t really be avoided completely, there may be things that you can do to minimize the risk.

How to Minimize the Damage

One of the best things that you can do to minimize the risks associated with excessive sitting is to simply move your body. While exercise will help, it’s even more beneficial to take frequent breaks in order to get your body some regular activity. It may also help to add chiropractic care to your normal routine. While it won’t do anything while you’re actually in the process of sitting, it may help minimize the discomfort in a big way.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

So how can chiropractic care help? Chiropractors may be able to remove joint restrictions from the body, thus alleviating pain. If received on a regular basis, this may significantly decrease the amount of damage and pain that is created by the sedentary lifestyle. While it may not help with the risk of blood clots -- you’ll really need to move your body -- it can absolutely boost the overall health of the body and help create pain-free living from here on out.
