The Not-So-Glamorous Side of Sitting
By Donna Stark
On the outside, it can all appear to be very glamorous. You wear your best clothes and you take important phone calls. You lunch with prominent clients and you network during happy hours. It certainly seems like working in an office setting has its fair share of perks, but let's not forget the other side to this great life. The side that is filled with headaches, back pain, muscle tightness, and fatigue. The side that allows aches and discomfort to fill the hours of your day as fast as they fill every corner of your body. Sure, it's not hard to sit at a desk, but it most certainly can be hard on your body, and that's why you need to start seeing your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic.
The Damage From Sitting
From a shared cubicle, to a private cubicle, to a windowless office, to an office with a view, your desk has always been by your side. Kind of like that best friend who takes your calls in the middle of the night. But also kind of like the other friend, the one who always finds a way to put you in compromising situations. I bet you didn't realize that by saying hello to your desk job that you would also be saying hello to compromised health, did you? Don't worry, though! Your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic knows you are still moving through the ranks at work, and with their help, you (and your desk) can make it to that penthouse suite, free of pain.
