Does your job mean hours sat in from of a computer screen? Do you then sit in the evenings, either in front of a computer, tablet or watching the TV? Then chances are, its too much! As soon as we sit down electrical activity in our muscles reduces, our calorie burning capacity drops to 1 per minute and enzymes involved in fat breakdown reduce significantly.
Our muscles needs exercise and movement to help encourage and sustain good posture, health and general well being. Have you ever gone for a long walk and felt invigorated and alive afterwards? You don’t always have to go to a gym or run a marathon to get the exercise your body needs. As little as 10-15 minutes a day can stimulate the muscles, increase mental alertness and give you that ‘feel good’ factor! At Libra Chiropractic, we want to ensure that our patients get the most from their treatment, so regular exercise and correct posture go a long way towards helping maintain musculoskeletal health. So together with local companies and business we can help to advise on best practice for both sedentary and manual workers.
