Sitting all day
While calling sitting the new smoking is an exercise in hyperbole, it is clear that excessive sitting will take some kind of toll on your spine. The degree to which sitting harms your spine will be determined by the steps you take in prevention. These steps include:
- Strengthening the core
- Setting yourself up ergonomically
- Taking regular breaks
- Using properly adjusted office equipment
- Becoming a posture expert
But where to start? Taking action on behalf of your spine can be a difficult undertaking. That’s why we always say it’s a good idea to lean on your Sacramento spinal health experts.
