Injured… From SITTING???

July 18, 2011

How often do you feel a nagging pain or discomfort somewhere… knee, back, hip, shoulders, neck??  You name it, we’ve heard it and you’ve probably felt it!  What do you think causes these problems?  Squatting, running, exercising maybe?  Ever think sitting behind your desk, wearing those sexy high heels or driving may be the culprit?

By now you know, we want these blogs to spark some thinking.  Let’s get out of that robotic thinking and living to process how the body actually works.  Remember that song from way back… The hip bone’s connected to the thigh bone, thigh bone connected to the knee bone, etc.  So true are these words!

The position of your spine and lower body while sitting does not make a happy skeletal system!  And that ever important muscular system follows right along.  With two grumpy systems come those nagging aches and pains from improper alignment.  The tug o’ war between your muscles causes your body to begin yelling at you!  We take a Tylenol and call it a day when 15 minutes of some simple exercises could bring peace and harmony to your system!

Now, you make the choice… It takes some work on a daily basis to undo all the stress our bodies endure from regular daily activities.  Pain killers take a toll on your body… Find the right combination of corrective exercise, stretching and strengthening to get your body to stop yelling at you!
