8 Mobility Exercises to Help Combat Your Sitting Problem
Written by Dr. Michael Tancini, Ground to Overhead Physical Therapy

If you missed last week’s blog, Four Recommendations to Limit Sitting, I’d recommend checking that out before proceeding to these stretches to combat your sitting problem. Once you’re ready to combat your sitting problem with these stretches, consistency is key! Dedicate 10-15 minutes daily working on your mobility. You did not get stiff overnight and large-permanent mobility changes will not happen in one session. Large mobility gains take a while to attain.

Four Recommendations to Limit Sitting
Written by Dr. Michael Tancini, DPT

You’ve heard the saying before, “sitting is the new smoking.” It’s true; sitting for extended periods of time is bad for you. It forces you into compromised positions and it restricts your movement.

Compromised positions lead to compromised performance, pain and dysfunctional movement. Restricted movement leads to decreased blood circulation, decreased joint lubrication, stiff tissues and decreased energy expenditure. The combination of these two things can lead to sore joints, poor posture, increased weight gain and decreased mobility.
