The Harm of Sitting

The average American spends 9-10 hours sitting a day. Prolonged sitting leads to negative effects on your organs, digestion, muscles, and posture. Poor sustained seated posture causes: weakness of your deep neck flexors, tightness of the upper traps and pectorals, and weakness of the scapular stabilizers (mid and lower traps, serratus anterior). This is classically known as Upper Crossed Syndrome. The forward head imbalance can cause your shoulders to become rounded and create strain to your neck muscles. Sitting also increases the pressure that is placed on your lower back by 40% and can contribute to low back stiffness and disc dysfunction. Hip flexor tightness, wimpy abs and glute weakness are also a side effect of prolonged sitting. The question is how do we get more active? Simple changes can help your body throughout the day.

  • Take a standing or stretch break every 30 minutes
  • Have frequent posture checks throughout the day by setting a timer or a visual reminder
  • Take a walk during your lunch break and make it a habit to use the stairs
  • Wear a fitness tracker to increase your daily steps

If you have other posture questions or would like to speak with an experienced physical therapist, please contact Lakeshore Physical Therapy at:
