Advances in travel and entertainment along with shifts from labor oriented to computer oriented work have humans sitting at unprecedented amounts in modern society. Approximately 13 hours a day, coupled with 8 hours of sleep we get 3 measly hours of movement per day. That lack of motion is destroying our joints and muscles leading to many chronic pain symptoms that people visit the chiropractor for.
Now the really scary part. Even if you exercise regularly, research shows that it can not overcome that amount of sitting. You still are at increased risk of cardiovascular disease, arthritis and muscular imbalance and increased mortality just to name a few of the many issues.
