How Chiropractic Care Can Reduce the Health Effects of a Sedentary Lifestyle
Nowadays, people spend a huge amount of time sitting every day.
It can be as much as 8-16 hours per day due to office work, watching TV, playing video games, or checking our mobile phones.
A sedentary lifestyle can lead to many health issues and have serious repercussions for our quality of life as well.
Chiropractic care can help effectively reduce these health effects and get you feeling more motivated to move consistently.
How a Sedentary Lifestyle Can Affect Your Health
The effects of a sedentary lifestyle and the lack of physical activity can vary with each individual.
Here are a few of the most common health effects:
- Higher risk of chronic diseases (for example, diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease)
- Chronic pain
- Spine misalignments
- Flexibility issues
- Higher risk of cancer (such as breast cancer and colon cancer)
- Mental health problems (for example, depression, and anxiety)
- A decrease in bone health
- Slowed metabolism
- Poor mental health
Reduce the Health Effects With Chiropractic Care
As you can see from the above-mentioned symptoms, sitting in front of the computer or TV all day long is not healthy and can affect your life in many aspects.
One of the biggest problems with spending a lot of time sitting is that it can put the spine’s integrity at risk.
This is because a sedentary lifestyle can easily lead to poor posture and other imbalances that lead to chronic spine misalignment.
Chiropractors are experts in spine health, so they can detect even subtle misalignments of the spine secondary to being sedentary.
Unfortunately, when your spine is misaligned, it affects the flow of nerve energy in your body which can also cause other health issues and magnify the symptoms listed above.
Therefore, it may be a good idea to seek regular chiropractic treatment to assess your spine health and reduce the health effects of a sedentary lifestyle.
