A Telegraph.co.uk article reveals that today’s seemingly convenient sedentary lifestyle promotes inactivity. Combined with the academics-related stress experienced by the young, it causes “more of them to suffer chronic back pain” and gives rise to the amount of people suffering from discomfort. The article explains:
The “darker side” of modern life is causing a “cultural epidemic” of inactivity, which means incidences of back pain for people in their 20s and 30s are set to rise, the Charity BackCare said.
Adam al-Kashi, head of research and education at BackCare, described today’s lifestyle as “dangerously convenient.”
“There are many pluses to modern life and technology, but the darker side is how it divorces us from the need to use our bodies and exert ourselves physically,” he said. “We are now living dangerously convenient lifestyles where you don’t even have to move to exist.”
What do these findings tell us? For one, it reminds us that too much of something is bad. Most of today’s advances only require us to exert comparatively minimal effort to get things done, depriving our bodies of the need for adequate movement to remain healthy.
Others may argue that their regular sessions at the gym should counter the effects of their significant lack of movement. Then again, those exercises can only do so much especially if they remain static for a considerably long period of time.
As a result, complaints of chronic pain are all too common. Therapies can help restore the body’s normal function but issues begin to surface once patients leave the rehabilitation centers. Since they are no longer guided by experienced professionals at home, they have a tendency to revert back to their old habits and their discomfort expectedly returns.
When this happens, it is likely that people with chronic pain don’t own the products prescribed for therapy. Fortunately, there are therapeutic beds in Sacramento are available in retailers like the Healthy Bed Store. These companies understand the importance of supplementing therapy sessions with products that aid the patients’ recovery.
Chronic pain may be a distraction, but you don’t have to let it get the better of you. Specially designed therapeutic products and bedroom furniture in Sacramento, CA are on hand to help customers stop prolonging their agony so that they can resume doing their regular activities as soon as possible.
