Exploring the relationships between sitting time and symptoms in mid-age women.
There is growing evidence to suggest that total daily sitting time is associated with adverse health outcomes, even in people who meet current recommendations for physical activity. To date, this newly developing field of ‘sedentary behaviour epidemiology’ has mainly focused on health outcomes related to the metabolic syndrome. In this explorative study, we aim to examine whether sitting is linked to other negative health conditions, such as fatigue, headache, and back pain.
