Back Pain Relief Tip: Don't Sit For Too Long!

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Mon, Nov 16, 2015 @ 05:34 PM

We live in a culture of sitting. We sit at our desks at work. We sit while travelling by car, or bus, or plane. We sit at the dinner table. We even sit while relaxing such as when watching TV or reading a book. In fact, some may even say that sitting has become a requirement in our lives. And all of that sitting can be hurting your back!

The fact that our society has become one that sits more and more is one of the reasons that the number of people suffering with back pain has increased dramatically. It goes without saying, sitting for a long period of time can be bad for your back. But for many people, there is really not much of an option; because they need to sit to drive to work, and then sit at their desk all day, and then drive home. Sitting is unavoidable for them. So this week's Back Pain Relief Tip is simple: get up and move around more!

If you have stayed seated for 30 minutes or more, stand up and walk around for at least two minutes. Moving around in this manner is good for the back because it prevents stiffness which can lead to pain. By doing this as often as you can, you can relieve your back pain and prevent new pain from occuring!


This was just one of many Free Tips we offer to everyone, because one of our main goals is to educate everyone about their back pain as much as we can. If you would like more tips like this, we have a Free Email Series of our Top Ten Tips for Back Pain Relief.

At The Illinois Back Institute we are dedicated to educating people, because we know that the more that you understand about your problem, the more likely you are to eliminate it. We specialize in Functional Disc Rehydration - a multi-disciplinary approach to making the back healthier without surgery, injectionsormedications. This works toward relieving the pressure off the disc by allowing the nutrients to flow back into it. In the meantime, the supportingmuscles are strengthened and reactivated to help re-stabilize the spine.
