Rethinking Exercise When most people think exercise they typically think activities like running or weight training. And your exercise is done for a relatively short period of time, then you head off to tackle the rest of your day. What researchers are learning is that working out by itself won’t compensate for the problems associated with sedentary behaviour. We need to think about activity, not just exercise. Standing vs. Sitting We are learning is that a standing body uses energy quite differently than a sitting body. Even to the point to […]

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments: 0

A study was done “way back” in 1976 with 600 cases of chest pain. In 197 of the patients the chest pain was because of pressure on the spinal cord.
