Culprits of neck and back pain

Over the last 18 months I have had so many conversations with patients regarding the amount of time most of us are spending sitting since the beginning of the pandemic. Research has shown that sitting for long periods of time is detrimental not only to our physical bodies, but also negatively affects internal organs and mood. I recommend to anyone that is able to spend about half of their workday standing. There are numerous standing desk options available for a relatively small expense. I also recommend setting a timer for every 30 minutes so that you do not sit for too long of periods. Simply getting up and moving around the room for a minute or two can go a long ways to having a healthier body.
