Sitting all day at work is now found to be linked to ongoing back pain. In fact, sitting all day at work increases you risk of back pain up to three fold. Often people think sitting rests your back but in reality, sitting requires your postural spinal muscles to continue to work to hold your posture. At the same time, you don’t move your spine much while seated so the muscles hold your static posture for long periods which leads to postural fatigue and eventually spinal stiffness, spasms and pain. Left alone, this can jam your spinal joints, reduce mobility and lead to more advanced spinal conditions such as disc problems and degeneration.
