Take a break!

A study from Columbia University Medical Center has found that regular movement every half hour could help limit the effects of a sedentary lifestyle, and that exercise is not enough to ward off the risks of sitting still for long periods of time.

The British Chiropractic Association has some great advice for desk hoggers and couch potatoes.
– Get off your bus/train/tube a stop earlier and walk if possible.
– Don’t sit at your desk, table or on the sofa for more than 30-40 minutes; stand up to stretch, change position and walk around a little.
– Set goals to encourage you to get away and take proper breaks a step monitor would work well for this.
– Look for small opportunities to exercise during the day; use the stairs instead of the lift or escalator, walk on those local errands etc.
– Set up your working area to optimise care for you. Your seat should be adjusted so that your feet are flat on the ground, your knees bent, but with a slope from your hips to your knees. You should end up with your hips higher than your knees and your eyes level with the top of the computer screen. You may need to put the screen on a stand or even on a ream of paper to bring it to the right height. Relax when sitting in your chair, making sure you have your bottom against the seat back with your shoulder blades are touching the backrest of the chair. Arms should be flat and your elbows level with the desk or table you are using. Use a seat with armrests.
– Drink Up! – Drink a little more water instead of tea, coffee or alcohol; it will be healthier and keep your body hydrated.

Our Chiropractor in Barnsley work alongside Osteopaths and Physiotherapists from the private sector. Chiropractic can also be used along side NHS Physiotherapy when it is deemed necessary for the maximum benefit of the patient. We often treat patients on the NHS waiting lists with the GPs permission to aid recovery for the patient.

We also endeavour to explain and advise patients about their condition giving an understanding of what medication may help that can be purchased over the counter at most pharmacists. Although traditional Chiropractors advise against the use of medication we at the Barnsley Chiropractic Clinic will recommend their use when necessary.
