Sedentary Lifestyle and Chiropractic Care
One of the biggest problems with our society is that people tend to spend more and more time sitting. Whether it be for work or leisure purposes, it can reach as much as sixteen hours each day. Having a lifestyle that lacks physical activity can be more harmful to our health than we might first realize. This is why it is important to do our best to avoid sitting for long periods of time and eliminate the health effects of a sedentary lifestyle.
Why Is It Bad to Sit All Day Long?
Sitting all day long can have numerous health effects and can significantly decrease our quality of life in many aspects. The most common problems are obesity, poor health of bones (increased risk of osteoporosis), misalignment of the spine, chronic pain, problems with flexibility, slow metabolism, higher risk of chronic diseases (diabetes, cardiovascular disease), and some types of cancer (especially breast and colon cancer). Besides these physical health effects, a sedentary lifestyle can also have an impact on your mental well-being as it can lead to depression and anxiety.
Can Chiropractic Care Be The Solution?
Having a sedentary lifestyle can have serious consequences for your spine health. A primary reason is because when we are sitting too long, our bodies get tired and are more likely to assume a poor posture. If this bad posture occurs frequently and for a long time, it can also cause spinal misalignment. Sometimes, this spine misalignment may be so subtle that only a specialist can detect it. However, even a small deformity can seriously affect your quality of life secondary to the harm it does to your nerve integrity and the flow of nerve energy.
Luckily, chiropractic care can effectively address this underlying issue. A chiropractor can help you with their expertise on spine health to negate the health effects of a sedentary lifestyle. This way, you will regain your energy and self-esteem to naturally bring more activity and exercise into your life.
