Sitting Bad For Your Health:  Sunday Paper July 14, 2013

WORK IS SITTING US OFF was the headline of yesterday’s article about the dangers of long sitting.  Spinal health is severely affected, as is long term health.  Long sitting promotes a change to the natural spinal curvature of the lower back (from curved lordosis to straigther spine) which promotes abnormal stress leading to back pain, disc bulge, and sciatica.  It also causes ligament weakness through a scientific phenomenon called “creep”.
Ergonomic desk setup was also a key focus, ensuring good alignment of computer screen, chair, mouse and desk height.
