Overcoming a Sedentary Life with Chiropractic
The past year brought inactivity to every household around the globe. As things slowed down and we stayed inside, our activity levels plummeted. And while many of us found new hobbies, interests, and television shows to help pass the time, it’s important to remember that our body was made to move.
Living a sedentary life is risky and can lead to things like weight gain, loss of muscle, inflammation, reduced blood circulation and even a lower metabolism or hormonal imbalance. The less you move, the more pain you may feel—especially in your back. That’s because things like over-sitting may cause weaker back muscles and put excess pressure on discs, not to mention pinched nerves.
If you’re ready to add safe activity back into your life, start small by incorporating stretches into your morning routine. Set hourly reminders on your phone to get up and walk around the house. If you’re dealing with back pain, contact us to find some relief.
