Orthopedic Surgeon Shares Why Stretching & Mindfulness Are More Crucial Than Ever in the Sedentary COVID EraRemember the expression “sitting is the new smoking”? This phenomenon still rings true and it has gotten worse because of COVID-19. One of the many negative effects of the pandemic is that it has made Americans even more sedentary - and the effects of this are long lasting. With the continued rising number of Coronavirus cases, more people are staying home, working remotely, and getting less exercise, and simply not moving enough.

According to Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Zvi Pearlstein, the COVID-imposed sedentary lifestyle poses more health risks than you would think.Screen Shot 2020-11-29 at 4.09.00 PM.png"Before the pandemic, America was in the midst of another health crisis: physical inactivity and sedentary behavior. While it may seem minor in comparison, according to the WHO, 3.2 million deaths per year are attributed to this unhealthy lifestyle behavior..."

...says Dr. Zvi, who, as an Orthopedic Surgeon has seen the negative health consequences of ubiquitous sedentary lifestyle on muscle and joint function. It causes a limitation of motion and function, and a continued weakening of the body. Not only does this exacerbate musculoskeletal pain, it is the base of much human ill-being and can cause a myriad of other health issues including obesity, low back pain, heart disease, high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, and cancer.

So we should all go for a run, do some cardio, and get our blood pumping, right? Yes of course...but that's not enough, according to Dr. Zvi.

“Just as important as aerobic activity is stretching and mindfulness. They are more crucial than ever in the sedentary COVID era and they need to be an integral part of your workout plan for 2021...”

...says Dr. Zvi, who is an advocate of health wisdom and non-invasive care to reduce pain and improve overall health and wellbeing. A pioneer in holistic wellness and pain management, he stresses the importance of healthy movement along with other alternative solutions - philosophies that are disrupting the status quo of therapy. Dr. Zvi developed the alternative solutions comprising his “Pain Toolbox” to help transform healthcare from the information age to the wisdom age. Through his video tutorials including the 1 Minute Stretch™ and Stretching for Pain Relief Video Series, and his newSitFit Chair™ (a total body gym in an innovative non-sedentary, multi-positional, and multi-functional chair), he is able to connect with patients and provide simple and straightforward solutions to optimize health, wholeness, and happiness through the unique concept of "Soul & Body".Dr. Zvi is sharing insight and actionable advice to optimize health during the COVID holidays and New Year.
