For thousands of students and employees across Georgia, many of today’s environments require individuals to sit for extended periods. Studies show that the long-term effects of leading a sedentary lifestyle can cause a series of health complications that include chronic pain, postural impairments, and arthritis. To prevent such conditions from developing, it’s recommended to follow through with regular Chiropractic Treatment to maintain a healthy system that allows you to remain loose and flexible.
Sitting for hours at a time diminishes blood flow and slows down your metabolism, allowing fatty acids and postural impairments to develop. Also, sitting down in front of a computer monitor or at a desk for more than six hours at a time significantly increases the risk for back and neck pain. The risk of sustaining other, more severe conditions like Heart Disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
Our Snellville Chiropractors specialize in treating musculoskeletal conditions and provide lifestyle support in ways to help patients maximize their health. Our patients enjoy the benefits associated with ongoing Chiropractic Treatment, just as much as they gain from our diet and exercise recommendations.
Instead of sitting down for hours, try breaking up the monotony by getting up to stretch and walk around for ten minutes each hour. Doing so can help keep your system loose, and ligaments stretched out. Walking helps stimulate the circulatory system, which is responsible in part for transferring blood to your muscles and spinal discs. Allowing your body to receive a complete and healthy dose of oxygen-rich blood helps prevent stiffness, inflammation, and postural deformities.
Our Snellville Chiropractors help patients correct postural impairments and practice good techniques to prevent further pain or damage from occurring. Advice such as sitting at your desk with both feet planted flat on the floor and keeping your neck in-line with your computer monitor goes a long way in preventing pains or aches. If you do suffer from pain associated with practicing poor posture on a regular basis, techniques such as Chiropractic Adjustments and stabilization exercises can help eliminate subluxations that prevent your body from performing at peak levels.
