Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Tue, Mar 07, 2017 @ 04:32 PM

low_back_pain1 470x246.pngOur culture has become one of sitting. We sit when we are at home, and we sit when we are at work. We even sit when we are travelling between those two places. For most of us it's now a fact that sitting is a requirement in our lives. And this has become a problem because all of that extra sitting is leading to people suffering with back pain!

Since our society has changed into one that sits more than ever before, the amount of people suffering from back pain and sciatica has dramatically increased. This is no coincidence; it's pretty obvious that sitting for too long is not good for the back. Unfortunately, for many people there's no other option.

For people who have to sit much of the day, our Back Pain Relief Tip of the Week is pretty simple: remember to get up more often and move around! Anyone that has been sitting for 30 minutes or more should take a short break to stand up and walk around for at least two minutes. Doing this is good for the back because it will prevent the stiffness that can lead to back pain.
