Dangers of Sitting Long Periods
If your job requires that you sit for long periods of time, it is likely you have suffered from discomfort as a result of this. It is important to see chiropractic treatment if you are experiencing pain due to extended sitting. Contact Campion Chiropractic in College Station to make an appointment with Dr. Campion or DR. Sehorn for help. Here is some important information regarding the dangers experienced when sitting for long periods of time.
Why Sitting Too Long is Dangerous
Those who sit for too long day after day are at a greater risk of contracting heart disease than people who are more active on the job. Type II diabetes is also a higher risk for those who are sedentary. Failing to walk around can also lead to obesity. When you remain in a chair for hours upon end, the blood in your body will not circulate as evenly. This can lead to discomfort and pain in the legs and lower back. Lack of movement will also lead to aches and pains in the back, shoulders, and neck.
How to Avoid Pain and Discomfort on the Job
Take the time to get out of your seat as much as you possibly can. This may be difficult if you have plenty of work to do, however, it is imperative that you move your body around to avoid injury. Inquire about receiving a sit-stand desk to do your work. This ergonomic option allows you to continue working while in a standing position if desired, helping you to stretch muscles as needed.
