Sitting for one hour correlates to a decrease in life expectancy of 21.8 minutes, according to an October 2012 study from the British Journal of Sports Medicine. In this study, they found that on average, people sit for 50-70% of the day. Sitting also puts increased pressure on the discs of our spine and can cause  back and leg pain. As a physical therapist, I frequently treat patients who have low back pain, sciatic pain, and hip pain caused from prolonged sitting. There are several simple lifestyle changes that can give you pain relief and lengthen your life expectancy. First, try to devise...

Spring is on! And, for many people, so is "spring cleaning!"

I'm sure it's happened to you: You're in a tense team meeting trying to defend your position on a big project and start to feel yourself losing ground. Your voice gets louder. You talk over one of your colleagues and correct his point of view. He pushes back, so you go into overdrive to convince everyone you're right. It feels like an out of body experience — and in many ways it is. In terms of its neurochemistry, your brain has been hijacked. In situations of high stress, fear or distrust, the hormone and neurotransmitter cortisol floods the brain. Executive...

physical therapy, posture alignment and getting rid of neck pain
"I just want this pain in my neck and these headaches to go away!" I hear this complaint often. Neck pain is very common, and I have found that most people who complain of neck pain also complain of headaches. Sometimes neck pain is caused by injury, but sometimes it is not injury related at all. Car accidents, falls, and even contact sports are common ways of injuring the neck. Whip-lash occurs and the discs in between the vertebrae can be damaged. If discs in the upper or cervical spine are damaged, this can cause headaches because bones are pushing on...
