Many people might have their theories about which is better when it comes to sitting or standing at work. Maybe your boss has one of those cool elevating desks and rubs it in everyone's face -- all the people who have to sit down to earn a living.
Okay, maybe that's all a little dramatic. But the debate is very real, and the lines of division have been drawn. Barton Chiropractic Clinic will discuss the pros and cons of each and let you, the reader, decide on your own.
Regardless, there are serious drawbacks to sitting for 8 hours a day -- no matter which way you slice the pie. Sitting for hours on end is not good for your metabolic health or your longevity.
Well, standing all day isn't exactly a pony ride, either. Ask any server at a restaurant -- long bouts on your feet isn't so great, either, and can lead to physical discomfort in the ankles, knees, hips, back, and neck. Standing all day can also make you fatigued and cut down on your focus.
Instead, try to mix it up. Try to get up at least once an hour and walk to the water cooler, or walk the floor of your place of work. If you work from home, have a quick fitness routine you do at the top of each hour, so you can break up the monotony.
Whether you stand or sit at work, there's always a chance for injury or strain. If you're anything less than 100% and need an adjustment, contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today. We'll schedule your consultation immediately and get you back to active as soon as possible, drug-free.
