It’s Time To Get On Your Feet

It’s time to get ‘On Your Feet Britain‘ again on 27th April when Get Britain Standing in association and Active Working launch their annual day to promote sitting less and moving more during the working day.

As chiropractors in our busy clinic in Newcastle Under Lyme we see first hand the impact that sedentary lifestyles are having on people’s lives. Sitting for prolonged periods can lead to back pain and worryingly research shows it can lead to increased risk of a host of other health problems including:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Cancer
  • Depression

The average time a British person sits for in a day is 8.9 hours! That’s a lot of time. However, it’s surprising how the time mounts up. There’s a useful calculator on the Get Britain Standing website that allows you to calculate how many hours a day you spend sitting. Try it – the results may surprise you.

If you are suffering back pain then our chiropractors at Newcastle Chiropractic Clinic are here to help you. Why not call us on 01782 711 191 to book an appointment.
