An article in Forbes announced that “Americans sit more than anytime in history...and for people with long commutes, even longer...and it’s literally killing us.” The average number of hours spent sitting for the average American is a shocking fifteen hours a day! Sitting at a desk all day can cause injury to posture, the spine, and the body’s ability to correct itself without proper stretching or adjustments made by a professional chiropractor. Pain in either the low back or lower extremities, often caused by gluteus medius weakness, can cause severe damage to a person’s overall well-being and ability to function in everyday life. According to the American Heart Association, sedentary jobs have increased by 83% since 1950. That’s a lot of strain on the lower back and lower extremities, both areas affected by the gluteus medius.
Gluteus Medius as described on Physiopedia is described as being located on the lateral aspect of the upper buttock, below the iliac crest. This area can be severely painful for an individual, especially anyone carrying additional body weight. At BodyPro Chiropractic and Sports Medicine, Dr. Arash Noor identifies the painful cause and creates a personalized healing plan to help soothe and alleviate pain from the affected areas. With the increase of stay-at-home jobs and work-from-home opportunities, lower back pain and lower extremity pain have increased due to a spike in the average number of hours spent in a seated position.
Addressing these areas of concern is our number one priority in treating a patient and leading them on the journey to happy and healthy adulthood that continues on into old age. Old age doesn’t have to be painful; neither does adulthood. Dr. Arash Noor at BodyPro Chiropractic and Sports Medicine will offer their expert opinion in aiding a potential gluteus medius weakness and strengthen your ability to remain active and alert throughout your day-to-day activities, even if a large percentage of it is sitting in some capacity!
