Now, you may be wondering why we’re comparing professional athletes to “office” professionals.
Research has shown that all the hours we spend sitting at our desks can place more stress on our spines than working out all day long!
Why it Matters:
So, it may be a bit too late to change careers and try out for a professional sports team.
But there are a few things you can do to stay healthy and productive while you work that professional athletes also do, and you can start right now!
Get active with daily exercise. Practice daily light stretching. Receive routine chiropractic care.
Together, each of these can help keep your spinal discs healthy and strong and take the stress off your spine.
Chiropractic adjustments can help bring valuable nutrients to those important spinal structures.
This, in turn, helps better facilitate the body’s healing processes, including flushing out any inflammatory substances that can cause pain.
What’s more, researchers from SPINE found that periodic chiropractic care may be able to detect, evaluate, and prevent future episodes of work related neck and back pain.
To recap, here’s what you want to know about sitting and chiropractic care:
Sitting is one of the most stressful positions for your spine.
You can keep your spine healthy with a combination of daily exercise, daily light stretching, and routine chiropractic care.
Periodic chiropractic visits can also help evaluate, detect, and treat an emerging problem, thus preventing future episodes of low back pain.
