Common Questions Answered
1. What are common side effects of sitting all day?
Scientists believe that anyone sitting more than 6 hours a day is at a heightened risk of developing problems and this much sitting may be as bad as smoking a pack of cigarettes everyday.
Some studies are even finding that if you regularly sit for long periods of time at work, this habit will take years off your life (even if you exercise regularly). That’s not to mention the heightened stress levels and a host of other problems that don’t show up for decades.
2. What changes in your body occur from too much sitting?
Sitting for a long period of time causes a number of molecular cascades occur. For example, within 90 seconds of standing up, the muscular and cellular systems that process blood sugar, triglycerides, and cholesterol—which are mediated by insulin—are activated.
All of these molecular effects are activated simply by carrying your own bodyweight. These cellular mechanisms are also responsible for pushing fuel into your cells and, if done regularly, will radically decrease your risk of diabetes and obesity.
In short, at the molecular level, your body was designed to be active and on the move all day long. When you stop moving for extended periods of time, it's like telling your body it's time to shut down and prepare for death. Reference: Mercola

I found Physio from a Facebook post. I really hate going anywhere for stuff like this, but I enjoyed coming and am very happy to be done with the pain. Being a single mom, I don’t have time to deal with pain. I couldn’t early more before I came and now I am so much better. Everyone there was so pleasant to be around and I actually had fun coming instead of dreading it. Thank you all!” – Sabrina Ridenhour (patient)
