The spine isn’t a delicate structure; it’s built to last.
What it’s not meant to do is sit still all the time.

Sitting is the new smoking
On average, you’ll spend 4,000 days of your life sitting at a desk. Being sedentary for that long does a lot of harm to your body.
How long are we sitting?
Over 25% of American adults sit for more than 8 hours every day with an additional 3 hours of sitting to watch television on top of that. That's 11 hours on average!
What's the problem with sitting?
A national cohort study has shown that both the total volume of sedentary time and its accrual in prolonged, uninterrupted bouts are associated with all-cause mortality, suggesting that physical activity guidelines should target reducing and interrupting sedentary time to reduce risk for death.
What's at risk?
People who sit the most have a greater risk of disease and death than people who sit the least:
112% increased risk of diabetes.
147% increased risk of cardiovascular events like heart attack and stroke.
90% increased risk of death from cardiovascular events.

My back no longer bothers me after being on the computer all day.
