Sitting is not only bad for adults

Hello fellow SAC members,

You may have heard how continuous sitting or undisrupted sitting for long period of time (1+hour) is not good for one’s overall health, don’t forget the effect of sitting can affect our younger generation, too!

This article from the NY Times highlight some points on how sitting can adversely affect the young ones and I think those points apply to us too!


I generally recommend one to change position during sitting every 20 minutes, especially for those with low back pain and sciatica, to spare the shearing force on the lumbar spine disc. Now let’s get those young couch potatoes off their rears and start moving!


Move better to feel better,

Dr. Li
