GET A MOVE ON, KIDS!
Sitting down makes you sick. So far, so well-known. Doctors and therapists have been drawing a gloomy picture of a society of sick adults for years. Sick because passivity in childhood creates the basis for problems with the locomotor system and a number of diseases. All warnings have been in vain. We are facing a societal disaster.
Prolapsed disks, issues with joints of all kinds were—and partially they still are—considered a phenomenon of old age. But in practice we observe a different picture. People under 30 are filling the waiting rooms of doctor’s offices and therapeutic facilities. For years, there have been warnings about what a lack of exercise can do to the individual and ultimately to the healthcare system. Now this dark prophecy has fulfilled itself. And the time to discuss the entire array of topics anew and to take action is now.
