Sedentary positions is an occupational hazard to your spinal good health!
Any sedentary position (whether that be sitting at a desk or in a motor vehicle) held for an extended period of time will create pain issues for your back.
Occupational exposures to activities such as lifting, be that heavy or repetitive, can create lower back pain. Any prolonged posture will lead to static loading of the soft tissues and cause circulatory demands, coordination and motion control. The seated posture leads to inactivity causing an accumulation of metabolites, accelerating disk degeneration and leading to disk herniation.1)
Taking care of your health by preventative measures is always the best course of action. However, if you find yourself being in the category above, please make an appointment with Mary Anne Lowery Chiropractor to discuss what assistance can be offered to you.
