The Effects Of Sitting for Prolonged Periods


Sitting for Prolonged Periods

If you perform tasks where excessive sitting is required on the job, it is likely you are experiencing neck pain or back pain after spending several hours seated in a chair. Contacting Balanced Health Medical in Manhattan to make an appointment with our chiropractor is an option available for pain relief. Here is some information about sitting for too long and how chiropractic care can help.

What Happens To Your Body

Sitting in a chair for an extended amount of time on the job will cause muscles to become achy as they are dormant during the workday. Many people suffer from soreness in the back as their body may slump forward, leading to poor posture. The neck may also become stiff or achy when looking at paperwork or a computer monitor for many hours.

How To Avoid Discomfort

It is important to take breaks from sitting if possible. If you are unable to walk away from your seating area, simply stand up and do a few stretches to keep your blood circulating. Stretching your arms and legs while in a seated position can also help. Consider using a lumbar pillow or an ergonomically proper chair to support your back as you work. If you use a computer monitor or cell phone on the job, place it at eye level to help avoid neck pain.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Getting effective pain relief is a concern. Many people find that chiropractic care is a huge help in stopping any discomfort as a result of excessive sitting. Our chiropractor will perform spinal adjustments to give you instant relief if you are suffering from back or neck pain. Temperature therapy or massage may also be effective in minimizing pain without the use of invasive procedures. Our chiropractic team offers services without the need of medication as well.
