No More Back Pain! The Stretch Sequence Every Office Worker Needs

The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey reports that 50 to 70 percent of people spend six or more hours sitting every day. "The sitting disease," as it's referred to, is said to shorten your lifespan, cause major inflammation, and most of all, cause some serious back pain. Studies show that sitting dormant for hours on end, combined with a lack of movement and exercise, can cause type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and even certain cancers.

Thankfully, this video is helpful for anyone who sits a lot. If you have a desk job or often clip into couch potato mode (hey, all of us fall into that category at one point or another), try these movements that counteract the stress of sitting. Bonus: They also prevent and ease back pain.

Take just a few short minutes on any chair to join Grokker expert, Christina Robohm, as she guides you through a series of effective seated stretches designed to strengthen, lengthen, and relieve tight back muscles. It will only take a few minutes, but the effects will be well worth it. These simple movements are appropriate for anyone looking for a quick stretch to take care of your precious back. Your back supports you all day long—now it's time for you to support it by giving it some love.
