These “small movements” on the office chair can reduce the dangers of long sitting

We often see some patients, at a young age, they are troubled by cervical spondylosis, lumbar disc herniation, after asking that they are sedentary office crowd. General continuous sitting more than 2 hours without standing up activities or changing the behavior of sitting position, is sedentary. It is harmful for sitting long time, the first harm is our spine, cardiovascular system and gastrointestinal system will also be affected to varying degrees. A doctor of rehabilitation medicine in a hospital suggests that sedentary people need to pay attention to changing the sitting position, and can try to do some "small movements" on the office chair.

"small movements" as below:
1.Sit on the edge of your chair with your legs in circles, knees bent and feet on the floor. Lift your left foot slightly off the ground and turn it counterclockwise from below your knee, as if drawing circles in the air with your heel. Keep circling counterclockwise for 30 seconds, then clockwise for 30 seconds. Then, lift the right foot and do the same. If you find circles too boring, you can spice things up with 26 letters.

2.Raise your calves and sit on the edge of your chair, keeping your knees bent. Stretch your hamstrings (muscles at the back of your thighs) by lifting your left foot toward the ceiling, toes up and legs straight and parallel to the floor, finally put your feet down and repeat the whole sequence 5 times. Then, do the same with the right foot.

3.The knee lifting requires you to sit slightly behind your chair and lean against it. Keep your knees bent and lift one leg toward your chest. Repeat 5 times with both legs.

4.Sit in the middle of your chair with your back straight. Straighten your arms and spread them out to your sides as if forming the letter T with your upper body. Keep your arms straight and clasp your hands above your head. Repeat 20 to 30 times.

5.Tilt your head back, place your hands behind your head, and push your head forward as hard as you can while your neck remains still. Take a rest after 10 seconds and repeat 10-20 times.
