In a recent article in the Health & Science section of the Washington Post (Jan 20, 2014), a number of experts highlighted the health risks associated with prolonged sitting, especially while watching TV. These risks range from back and neck pain to organ damage and higher mortality rates. The image below spells out these risks, along with tips for reducing the risks. Through years of experience we have found that strong core muscles and good spinal flexibility are the keys to avoiding many of the issues that arise from sitting, both of which can be achieved by following a personalised Pilates program regular basis.
