Standing Desks - The Ups and Downs
"But what's the fuss, isn't it just another gimmick?"
Not at all, in fact chiropractors welcome the new influx of table tops and have been waiting for them for years! When you stand, you require more active core muscles which help support your spine.
Muscles account for 80% of lower back support, so if they are regularly shut off for too long, problems arise.
"So standing is the answer to all of my problems?" Unfortunately not, it is possible to stand badly too and that can lead to discomfort. What is also important is to be able to move and change between positions regularly and the stand up desks provide a great tool for this. It's not just for 'the guy with back pain'. Be outstanding and ask your chiropractor how you could benefit.
