Sitting-Down Syndrome

Sitting Down on the Job

The use of computers in virtually every home, school and workplace environment has given rise to a host of related injuries affecting an unprecedented number of people worldwide

Without even realizing it, people often sit for hours a day hunched over a desk or in front of a computer, with their heads held forward for extended periods of time. Over time, this unnatural position places significant stress on the head, neck, shoulders and back, causing a condition known as Sitting-Down Syndrome. This condition has prompted an exponential increase in the number of people suffering from a variety of ailments that include:

  • Headaches
  • Neck pain
  • Lower-back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Wrist pain

When seated for extended periods of time, muscles contract and eventually become tighter and shorter, placing undue stress on other muscles, joints, ligaments and tendons. In an unconscious effort to relieve the pain caused by this condition, your body compensates in a way that weakens your muscles even further. In turn, this repetitive condition leads to even more pain and suffering unless this cycle is interrupted and corrected.

Whether you’re at the office, home or school, there are several ways to help alleviate the chronic pain caused by Sitting-Down Syndrome.
