BACKGROUND

The Movement is health care protocol software that is available to combat high levels of injuries and illness stemming from inactivity and computer use. This software was developed by two chiropractors, Drs. Gregory and Eric Soltanoff and guides users through a two minute targeted stretch micro-break each hour. These breaks have been shown to fight diabetes, heart disease, cancer, chronic neck and back pain and chronic fatigue without having to leave your desk. There is a free trial available and this software is a great reminder to get up and move when you are tied to your desk. The Movement is available for businesses and can increase productivity and decrease overall health costs. Our bodies are designed for movement, and The Movement helps you break up the monotony of a workday with some simple moves. Some of the research that went into this software shows that people who take short breaks to be active throughout the day are doing more for their health than those who exercise for 30 minutes three to five times per week. Research has also shown that workers who take stretch breaks are more productive.
