Did You Know That A Sedentary Lifestyle Can Put You At Risk For Back Pain?

Sedentary Lifestyle Can Put You At Risk For Back Pain?

When we sit for long periods of time, certain muscles tend to shorten, other muscles become lengthened and weak, other structures, (e.g., ligaments) can be stretched and disc pressure can also increase. We then develop an imbalance in our muscles and typically our buttock muscles and abdominal muscles get used less and become weak. These muscles are crucial to providing support to the low back. Physical therapy can help you improve your core strength and flexibility, resulting in improved posture, decreased strain/pain in the spine and improved function.
