Office Health Scares Part II: Joint Problems

joint problems

Problem: We are meant to move. And sitting in one place for too long can make your joints feel tight. Sitting at a desk shortens and tightens the hip flexors and muscles that help pull your legs toward your body (according to the Yoga Journal).

This can in its turn contribute to back pain as well.

Prevention: Get up from your desk at regular intervals, walk around and do some light stretching.
