By now most of us have heard that prolonged sitting has many adverse health effects. We've also been told that in general working out and then sitting all day does not make the situation much better. This new review article published in The Lancetlooked at the effect of physical activity and sedentary behavior with all-cause mortality. They found that daily sitting time did not have an effect on those in the most active quartile of physical activity. The people in the most active quartile did the equivalent of moderate exercise for an 60-75 minutes per day, everyday. Interestingly, those who sat the least but were also the least active otherwise, had a significantly increased risk of dying. So just being on your feet all day does not give you the same benefit as exercise. Another interesting fact was that regardless of physical activity, 3 or more hours per day of watching television was associated with increased mortality.

Testimonial

Dr. Seaton is an excellent doctor!! She gives the patient a lot of time and focused attention and considers not just the injury but lifestyle issues that impact the body and our ability to heal. She is very concerned that patients get good physical exercise, take care of themselves, and resume their former activities. I have gone to her for years (thanks to a number of car accidents) and trust her implicitly to give the best treatment.
