We know that sitting in static positions is not great for us. Joints stiffen, muscles are generally underactive. In the case of sitting whilst working at a computer there are some muscle groups which are overused, leading to imbalances and potentially discomfort. Blood pools in the feet and flows poorly through the areas where there is pressure (numb bum anyone?!).
Joints stiffen up in the spine, all the way from the neck, down through the ribcage and into the low back and pelvis. All the joints in the legs can stiffen up – hips, knees, ankles. Shoulders stiffen due to the muscles surrounding the shoulder being under tension as you use your mouse and type. Think of the feeling you get when standing up from your aeroplane seat after a long flight, it takes a moment to feel able to stretch up to your full height. Sitting at a desk is doing this to a degree every day….
Pilates helps you align your spine and strengthens your neck and shoulders. This can help minimize the back-pain office workers have due to sitting at their desk all day. It can also help reduce neck pain by releasing muscle tension and building up strength. For those who talk on the phone, or have a non-ergonomic desk set-up, this can be especially important.
Pilates is also a great way to strengthen your core, which improves your overall posture. This can be important for office workers since many slumps over a desk most of the day. And even after the day is done, that poor posture follows you, creating muscle tension and pain that lasts long after you clock out.
