Homeworking risks outbreak of back pain
Chiropractors have warned of a big rise in cases of back, shoulder and neck pain as millions of people sit hunched over laptops or tablets at home, often n a kitchen chair or on the couch.
In recent weeks, the global spread of COVID-19 has forced us to work from home. After sitting 8 hours in a kitchen chair or on the couch, many of us started to feel the aches and pains.
Lower back pain mostly is a result of conditions affecting the lumbar spine, spinal discs between the vertebrae, ligaments around the spine and discs, spinal cord and nerves or muscles of the lower back.
The burden on the spine is lightest in a laying position. In the upright position (standing) the ligaments and muscles take part in the disc burden. While sitting, the muscles and ligaments relax further increasing the burden and pressure on the intervertebral discs. Excessive or prolonged loading on the intervertebral disc damages the fibrous ring and causes the spillage of liquid from the core discs. With the gradual desiccation of intervertebral discs, the distance between the vertebrae reduces, leading to friction and pinching of nerves and even the complete destruction of the intervertebral discs. This is one of the main causes of back pain.
The spine supports and carries the upper part of the body. For this reason, it is always burdened. The spinal load is measured by the pressure inside the discs, created by the upper-body weight & body posture.
SpinaliS Chair as a PREVENTIVE DEVICE
The SpinaliS chair is recommended as a preventive and therapeutic tool for back pain, minor disc injuries, lumbago, and scoliosis. Unlike modern ergonomic chairs with a fixed seat the SpinaliS chair with its moveable seat encourages the body to continuously actively adapt its posture in harmony with the movement of the seat. An upright posture allows the body to maintain balance and also activate small muscles along the spine and its joints.
The benefits of continuous pelvis motion are:
Increased blood flow to the whole body, especially the pelvic and lumbar area;
Strengthening back and abdominal muscles;
Relieving the intervertebral discs and vertebrae
In many cases, pain reduction in already damaged spine
Significantly reduce the risk of injury;
