Having back problems?
Back problems are driving many office workers to stand up!
But helping with back pain and other musculoskeletal problems is only one benefit of standing more et sitting less during the work day.
There is growing evidence to suggest that excessive sitting may be responsible for a number of so called 'sitting disease' health problems like:
- maladies du cœur
- Type-2 diabetes
- other metabolic-related disorders
Some researchers refer to 'sitting as the new smoking' .
Du coté positif, there is also evidence to suggest that standing for part of the work day increases productivity and it certainement, vraiment, définitivement burns calories!
