Sitting is Hurting Your Health: Get Some Help!

By Genevieve Cunningham

At the end of the day, most people just want to go home and collapse on the couch. It's a normal response after a day spent at work. Years ago, when everyone lived a more active life, this late night collapse was the perfect way to end the day. But in today's world, it seems like we're sitting all day. We don't move ... at least not enough. While this might not seem like a big deal, the truth is that all of that sitting is harming our health! If you sit more often than not, take a look at the dangers and solutions for this inactive lifestyle. 

The Dangers of Sitting

Excessive sitting has been linked to tight and sore muscles, a heightened risk of heart disease and blood clots, fatigue, headaches, backaches, and other negative side effects. Our bodies simply weren't made to be sedentary, and yet we force them to fulfill this role every day. Until we break the bad habit -- which is incredibly difficult in our modern world -- we're likely to continue this downward heath spiral. 

The Power of Chiropractic Care

Since breaking the sitting habit can be tough, especially if you work in an office, it's important to find other ways to combat the side effects. For many, the perfect choice is to add regular chiropractic care to their routine. But why? Chiropractors focus on two main things: the spine and overall health. First, they'll search the spine and body for joint restrictions. If found, the chiropractor will use gentle manipulation to remove them, thus eliminating harmful side effects and improving health. In removing these spots, most people also see a boost in overall health. They may notice pain relief, improved mobility, more efficient function of each system in the body  and this directly helps negate the negatives of a sitting lifestyle. You'll still want to move your body and exercise and get active as much as possible, but seeing the chiropractor is a great habit to keep in your life.
