Too much sitting is bad for your back!
By Chiropractor Bella Sichel
As a Chiropractor, with Health on Hand Mansfield on 15 St John Street, I am seeing more and more patients presenting with back issues that have come about due to the effect of sitting for long periods. The human spine is not designed to withstand the pressures of sitting and people are suffering as a consequence! Chiropractic care has been found to help alleviate these pressures and can give patients significant relief from their back pain.
The diagram below demonstrates how different back positions affect the pressure on the low back discs (the cushioning material between your back bones). One of the long-term risks of this pressure on your back is suffering from a disc bulge which can in turn give you sciatica (pain down your legs). While this is something that chiropractors usually can help alleviate, isn’t it better to prevent it happening in the first place?
