Spending your day by sitting for hours can make you feel tired, stiff, or painful throughout. As we spend many hours sitting on laptops or desktops, which can be exhausting. According to Dr. Erin Policelli, sitting for long hours can tighten your hip flexors and lower back pain. In fact, he says, "The hip flexors attach to the forward part of the lumbar spine, pelvis, and femur, so their compress results in a constant strain on your back." Besides, it will also affect your genital, rib cage, and diaphragm and will weaken the glute muscles. Additionally, he also said, "An important function of the glutes is to give stability for the abdomen and low back so when they aren't functioning it creates further back strain as well as increased workload of the hamstrings as they try to help." "Prolonged sitting generates a situation of myofascial tightness, joint malalignment, muscle weakness and overall instability culminating in pain and dysfunction."
