Let me tell you a crazy story: back in 2012 my arms went NUMB! I’m talking NO sensation from fingertips to elbows in both of my arms.
So there I was, totally FREAKED out with little to no feeling in either hand...
I searched high and low for the answers: massage, chiropractic, stretching, and anything that promised to help me. But still nothing resolved the issue until I went to a Physical Therapist who finally gave me the answer I needed.
He took one look at me and asked:
"How many hours do you sit at your desk everyday?"
None, I said. He was shocked!
Based on my symptoms he said would have guessed I was an all day desk jockey.
I explained I am a personal trainer and Yoga instructor, and the only thing new I was doing was learning how to box 🥊 .
💡 Then the light bulb went off!
The rounded posture I was training in was just like someone who's on computer all day, hence the similarity in my symptoms.
Once he learned that he was able help me out of the situation. What a relief!
Even better was, that in teaching me all about the nasty side effects of sitting he gave me incredible tools to use in my professional practice.
Now, having improved the lives of hundreds of clients and students who are strapped to their devices all day, I've come to call thisSitter’s Syndrome.
Sitter's Syndrome describes the exhausting aches, pains, weight gain, and health issues that can show up when you spend all day sitting down....not only are they completely draining but they also can escalate into major health problems.
So... are you ready to get out of pain and keep yourself strong and healthy for years to come?
