Awesome article, these are the same explanations I convey to my clients with reference to their back ailments, most all of whom sit at desks 8+hours a week. Never ceases to amaze me how personal trainers will sit clients that have careers that require them to sit right back into a machine during a session. Thank you

Thank you for your insightful comment Thomas. I could not agree more. I am a huge proponent of assessing the entire body first before recommending corrective exercises. Keep up the great work!

This is only one possible postural dysfunction from sitting that can lead to back pain. The opposite is also true. Some people when they sit , tuck their tail and as a result the glutes and hamstrings become short and tight and the lorodosis of the lumbar spine decreases or flattens.You could even have a combination of the two or a completely different disfunction. This article while decent , proposes by default that only hyper-lorodosis is created from sitting, which could lead the reader down the wrong road for correction stretches and exercises. Which is why an assessment before exercise prescription is so important.
