What Is Sitting Disease?

Have you consulted a lawyer about your workplace injuries sustained in the San Jose area? If so, it’s possible that you may be out of work for a while receiving injury compensation while you recover. While receiving workman’s comp, it’s likely that you’ll be doing a lot of sitting, particularly if movement exacerbates your painful symptoms. But according to this video, sitting may not be the best thing for your health.

Sitting for prolonged periods of time has been linked to an increased risk of blood clots, heart disease, high blood sugar, cancer, and death. If your injuries permit it, get up and walk around every 30 or 60 minutes. Remember to continue this periodic activity when you return to work, particularly if you have a job that requires long periods of sitting.
