Just Get Up & MOVE!

Several studies and reports state that American adults don't move enough. What are the dangers of being sedentary?

A study published in JAMA found that American adults sit more than eight hours each day, which can create a series of health problems, and can be a danger to your health.

What are some of the dangers to your health due to lack of movement?

Upon bending after extended sitting, it "can unevenly compress your spinal discs, hardening your tendons and ligaments."

Walking after sitting for an extended period "can tighten your hip flexors, restricting their ability to open, while shortening your stride."

Rotating "can decrease the space between your shoulder blade and upper arm, making rotating painful."

So, get up and MOVE!

These facts were taken from an infographic published by Chiro-One.
