(...) Researchers found that 59% of the respondents with sedentary jobs and lifestyles are more at risk of having back issues than people who do a great deal of lifting and carrying in their positions."1 Many professions today rely on the use of computers to perform their work and many people can attest that spending 8 hours per day sitting in front of a computer can feel ather unnatural to our bodies.  The results of forcing our bodies into extended periods of sitting often results in slouching, crouching over small screens, putting too ...
