The Role of The Physiotherapist In Prolonged Sitting. Why Should We Sit Less and How Can We Reduce The Amount of Time We Sit?
For years, prolonged sitting has been present in everyday life, both at work and during leisure time. In 2020, with the advent of COVID -19 and significantly more work from home, sedentary work using digital technologies, the amount of time spent physically inactive has increased significantly. This is an important risk factor for the development of various diseases due to its effects on the musculoskeletal system, cardiovascular system, nervous system and other organ systems. The increased use of digital technologies and the associated prolonged sitting has potentially far-reaching implications for all people. Therefore, the requirements for new measures, finding strengths and weaknesses, finding ways to improve, and finding solutions in the workplace have become challenges that physiotherapists must address wisely and effectively to achieve a better quality of life in the future.
