Physical inactivity, 4ᵗʰ leading risk of mortality

Poor posture may affect bones and muscle health

The prolonged RMCO measures amid the Covid-19 pandemic have been disrupting our daily routine unprecedentedly where not only our movement is restricted, but our physical activity as well. The 2019 National Health and Morbidity Survey findings show that 1 in 4 Malaysian adults were physically inactive. Globally, physical inactivity has been reported as the fourth leading risk factor for mortality¹.

Poor posture may strain bones and muscles

Physical inactivity or sedentary lifestyle over long period of time is one of the triggers for  muscle loss and poor bone health. Long hours of working in front of a computer without having proper posture and breaks, could have detrimental effects to your health without you knowing. For example, sitting for too long can make our hip flexor muscles to shorten that leads to problems of the hip joints.  Besides, other common troubles include poor posture, numbness, soreness and stiffness around the neck, shoulders, back and even legs. Poor posture may strain bones and muscles.

Strong bones, joints and muscles are important to support mobility

The changes in our bones and muscles may affect our movement such as walking and the strength to carry things and flexibility to do our daily chores. In some cases, it may lead to the development of serious health concerns such as osteoporosis and other musculoskeletal issues in the long term.

Musculoskeletal disorders, bone health and chiropractic care

Chiropractic care is one of the early prevention steps to help care for bone and muscle health.  Having strong bones and muscles helps to protect you from falling, which is a common factor for bone fractures.

“We are healthcare professionals who perform diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders alongside prevention counseling. ‘Neuro’ refers to the nerves while ‘muscular’ revolves around matters affecting the muscles,” explains Dr Sean Lee from Discover Chiropractic.

Chiropractors also perform soft tissue therapies, stretches and exercises and some other treatments to help improve your mobility and stability, while relieving pain, soreness, and stiffness around the affected areas. By applying appropriate chiropractic treatments, it helps strengthen the muscles and tissues surrounding your bones to stabilize your movement, which is instrumental in maintaining mobility health.

 

Prevention is better than cure

Healthy lifestyles start with balanced diet and regular exercise
