A study in the Annals of Internal Medicine found that sitting was associated with poor health outcomes. Published in January 2014, the researchers used a meta-analysis of numerous studies and 47 articles met their eligibility criteria. Discovered was a connection between prolonged sitting or sedentary behavior and an increased incidence of mortality, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and cancer.

Results showed that diabetes was the greatest risk factor. Sitting 6-12 hours a day increases the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes (91%), dying from all-causes (24%), from heart disease (18%), from cancer (17%), and developing cancer (13%).

Our best option is to get up and move! In fact, your spine loves movement and the brain feeds from the sensations of motion. Chiropractors in Vernon maintain the alignment of spines, which improves the capacity to move. Consider having your spine checked by a professional who knows the importance of keeping your spine and nervous system healthy.

Stand strong and move well!
