Too Much Sitting Linked To Knee, Hip, And Low Back Pain

Too Much Sitting Linked To Knee, Hip, And Low Back Pain

Pain in the knee, hip, and lower back is common among older adults and is a significant cause of disability in this group. An analysis of data from the 6th Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2014-2015) suggests that sitting for 7.5 or more hours per day is associated with over a 40% increased risk for either knee, hip, or low back pain. The findings suggest that reducing sedentary activity in seniors may be an effective strategy for reducing the prevalence of these musculoskeletal conditions.
