There is a lot of advice out there on how to be fit and healthy and there is also a lot of advice on what is unhealthy. We all know that fruit and vegetables are healthy foods as much as we know that ice cream is not. We know that exercising is good for you whilst doing nothing isn’t. As a leading osteopath in London W1 I just want to highlight the last point, in particular a lack of activity.
Inactivity is bad for you
There has been a lot said in the news about inactivity and its negative effect on your health. Reports have shown that long periods of sitting down is more damaging to your body than obesity and that going to the gym after hours if inactivity doesn’t reverse the effect. A particular concern for me as an experienced osteopath in London W1 is the negative effect inactivity is having on the strength of our skeletal structure, but there are many other negative effects from inactivity.
