Sitting for 7 Hours Per Day Increases Your Risk for Chronic Low Back Pain

In a recent article from Spine, April 2018 researchers studied 15000 Korean adults who sit for seven hours per day or more. Researchers concluded that sitting too long links those adults with chronic low back pain. Also noted in the study was of those adults those with poor fitness habits had an even greater risk for the relation to how long they sit.

The take away from this study is we have to move. Motion is lotion for the spine. Move it or lose it. get up every hour, walk around, march in place, stretch overhead, get an adjustable standing work station.
