More and more adults are experiencing back pain each year. Unfortunately, most are unaware that some forms of back pain can be avoided. The truth is, our sedentary lifestyle, hours of sitting with “text neck” and “screen slouching” is negatively affecting our posture and causing serious back pain.

According to PR Newswire, Americans are sitting an average of 13 hours a day! And according to the British Journal of Sports Medicine, not only does this sedentary lifestyle increase chances of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes but it also negatively influences your posture, causing lower back pain. Your bad posture could be causing your lower back pain.

So, moral of the story, don’t get trapped by the “sitting disease!”

Stop sitting for hours on end! Or at least if you are- do it UPRIGHT. Having upright posture can make all the difference.

If you have a sedentary office job (like most of us) and your boss hasn’t upgraded to the standing desk, then sitting is an inevitable part of the day. Although you should try to get up every once and awhile to walk around and stretch, realistically, you have to complete your day’s work while sitting. So why not learn to sit without causing yourself pain?

Training to have proper posture with the help of the UPRIGHT posture trainer can help you build life-long good posture habits. It’s important to remember, sitting doesn’t have to be painful.
