Book Description:  You’d better stand up for this bit of news.

Sitting can wreak havoc on your health, and not just in the form of minor aches and pains. Recent studies show that too much sitting contributes to a host of diseases—from obesity and diabetes to cancer and depression. The typical seated office worker suffers from more musculoskeletal injuries than those workers who do daily manual labor. It turns out that sitting is as much an occupational risk as is lifting heavy weights on the job. The facts are in: sitting literally shortens your life. Your chair is your enemy, and it is murdering your body.

In this groundbreaking new book, Dr. Kelly Starrett—renowned physical therapist and author of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller Becoming a Supple Leopard—unveils a detailed battle plan for surviving our chair-centric society. Deskbound provides creative solutions for reducing the amount of time you spend perched on your backside, as well as strategies for transforming your desk into a dynamic, active workstation that can improve your life.

You will learn how to:

Easily identify and fix toxic body positions

Eradicate back, neck, and shoulder pain

Mitigate carpel tunnel syndrome forever

Organize and stabilize your spine and trunk

Walk, hinge, squat, and carry with peak skill

Perform daily body maintenance work using 14 mobility templates for resolving pain and increasing range of motion

Whether your goal is to maximize your performance in or out of the workplace, lose weight, or simply live pain-free, Deskbound will work for you. It is a revolutionary cure for death-by-desk.

Review

I work at my computer all day and I do notice the effects that it has on my body.  I was looking for a way to add mobility into my work day and this book not only gave me ideas, but the strategies to actually implement them into my daily life. It is well illustrated and broken down in such a way that it can put use immediately. I am feeling the difference already! The book is quite large, but you don’t need to read it cover to cover at once.  It is easy to navigate and find the sections that apply to your own situation.  I feel that everyone with a desk job needs to get a copy of this book to improve their quality of life.
