Whistle, But Don’t Sit, While You Work

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

There have been many studies done in the past few years regarding sitting and its harms.  We have even linked them on this blog.  THIS ARTICLE FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES has links to many of these articles.

The long and the short of it is that our human body is not meant to sit.  We are upright beings and we are made to live as such.  Being chained to a chair for 6+ hours a day not only has many musculoskeletal issues that will bring you into see one of the Doc’s here at BCC but also other physiological changes that will send you to your Primary care doctor, your cardiologist or worst case scenario your mortician.  Sitting with good posture is one thing we can do to help,  but everyone needs to get up frequently throughout the day to help reset your tissues and keep your body in a more healthy place.  Learning correct diaphragmatic breathing, which is very challenging when sitting with bad posture, is something that here at BCC we think we can help you with.

Use your body and stand up! If you have any questions whatsoever please contact your BCC Doc or set up a time to meet one of us so we can help you to create a better you!
