Here Are Some Tips That Can Help Alleviate Your Pain
The quarantine is taking a toll on all of us – and yes, this includes our backs. Most of us are sitting more often.As claimed by UCLA Health, sitting for prolonged periods of time can be a major cause of back pain, cause increased stress to the back, neck, arms and legs. Sitting can also add a tremendous pressure to the back muscles and spinal discs.
The Simple Solution Is Sitting on the Tip of Our Noses
If sitting means less physical activity, then one of the answers is reducing sedentary behavior. Sit less and move more. There is strong scientific evidence that says frequent moderate- to vigorous-intensity exercise during the week plays a significant preventative role in cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity and some cancers.
Sitting Properly, Can Also Help a Lot
When your sitting, try to sit properly. Whether your behind a desk working from home, sitting on a zoom session with your doctor, or on a Skype call with family – sitting properly can prevent neck and back pain. Sitting can be classified in 3 letters, and only 1 is correct: (SCL);
S: If your sitting and your back looks like an s shape, then your sitting incorrectly
C: If your sitting and slouching, and your back looks looks like the letter C, your sitting incorrectly
L: try to progress and sit in a similar form to an L sit.
