As a nation we are spending much more time sitting and for longer periods. We sit to eat breakfast, sit to go to school, work, meetings and often when we get home we sit to eat dinner and then sit to watch T.V.

The combination of a sedentary lifestyle and more jobs which are predominantly desk based, can lead to a number of muscular skeletal disorders.
