When chronic sitting leads to pain and stiffness:

It’s inevitable, chronic sitting will eventually lead to having to resolve pain and limited range of motion.  This requires a systematic approach that puts the solution together into manageable components.  Ideally your mobility prescription should include:

Upon waking:  This is a great time to get your body moving a full range of motion, joint mobility work is excellent

Through out the day: Finding ways to add myofascial release or mobility into your day in small chunks goes a long way to keeping issues from resurfacing

Before exercise: You need to do mobility work to warm up your body for exercise and dynamic movements.  Going from eight hours in a chair to walking lunges is not a great idea for anyone.

After exercise:  This is the perfect time to do some range of motion work, your body is warm and prepped for quality range of motion work.

Before bed / TV time: Myofascial work in front of the tv is a great way to wind down at the end of the day.
