Living a more sedentary lifestyle is something that is all-too commonplace in a world where we increasingly rely on technology for more and more of the daily tasks that used to have us moving about to get accomplished. Anyone who works with computers, from home, or doing office work can attest to the fact that they probably donât move around as much as they used to before the rise of smart phones, tablets and laptops. This is one reason among many why people need to put more of a conscious effort into taking care of the vessels we have the privilege of inhabiting. Stretching and exercise is something we all need to need to place more of a focus on, regardless if you move more during the day or not. The stats donât lie, either.. About 31 MILLION people in the US alone experience some sort of lower back pain at any given time.
