When Sitting or Standing Too Long Hurts
By Stephen R. Farris
Throughout each day we all sit and stand to a degree. Add to that, lying down, and we have the trifecta of those human functions. But sitting for long periods of time, especially on a regular basis, say at a job, driving long distances or watching television all day can be detrimental to your overall health.
Standing for long periods can also give us health problems as well. Both of them can cause back pain and stress on muscles, joints and discs. We may try to fix the pain or stress ourselves, but usually it leads to other health problems, so it may be time to check out the benefits of chiropractic care.
