  • 3 Tips For Preventing Back Pain Caused By Prolonged Sitting

    Dr. Ron Nusbaum
    2 Sep 2014 | 11:42 pm
    What happens to your spine when you sit for long periods? This infographic explains the different forces in motion and what you can do to prevent low back pain from sitting in your chair. Inner hip muscles, or iliopsoas connect the back to the legs. These muscles get tight when you sit all day, causing the abdomen to be bulled forward and downward, and causing pressure on the lower back. Unnatural pressure on the lower back can certainly lead to pain. Prolonged sitting can compress spinal structures like the discs and lead to their deterioration, and may also aggravate sciatica. 3 Simple Tips…
