Research from Get Britain Standing shows that when people spend long periods sitting and they make themselves vulnerable to a wide variety of medical conditions.
Chiropractor, Tim Hutchful, says "In our research last year, we too found that people were blaming their back pain on their work. When sitting and bending forward (as you tend to do on an office seat) you can put twice as much load on your spine as standing does. Being stuck in one position for too long, even if it is in a 'good posture', is not advisable.The most ideal situation would be a desk set-up that allows you to stand as well as sit, as this gives you the option to change position regularly. The more adjustable your desk set-up is, the more likely you are to find a position that suits you."
