• Stand Up!

    by Dr. Shave
    on Oct 31st, 2019

Let's face it. We all work a lot, maybe too much, especially in New York City. For most of us this usually means long days sitting at a desk in front of the computer. Top institutions all across the country have been researching this and it is now known that sitting all day is very detrimental to our health. When we sit for long periods, triglycerides increase, good cholesterol drops and our bodies become inflamed. Sitting for too long is a stroke risk factor that you can control and most of the time avoid. It can also lead to poor posture and extremely tight muscles, especially in the lower back, hips, and legs. That is why I always recommend standing desks or sit-to-stand workstations for my patients. Most companies will even accomodate these requests, and pay for it, especially if it is linked to certain health conditions and recommended by a healthcare professional. 

If you, a family member or co-worker are interested in learning more about the positive effects of standing more during the day or are experiencing negative health effects from sitting too long, please schedule an appointment for a consultation in our office. We accept most major health insurance plans.
