Is crossing legs bad

You've probably heard that sitting with legs crossed at the knees might be harmful to your health. But it's a habit most people have, and it's a tough one to kick whether you're working at your desk, dining at a restaurant or waiting in a waiting room. 

In addition to that, we generally sit much more in this modern age, with fewer people working physical jobs and choosing sedentary work. Some people sit up to 8-10 hours a day (or more!)

Many women have also probably heard their teachers or grandmothers scold them for sitting with legs crossed, and this etiquette rule may have come from the potential negative side effects for health.

Feeling confused, many patients ask their doctors and physical therapists if that's all true. You can check other frequent questions that patients make to their therapists here.

Anyway, we've put together a full guide that answers the question, is crossing your legs bad for you and your health?

Questions to Ask Your Physical Therapist

Physical therapy can help with a myriad of health issues and problems, but it's crucial to pick the best service provider and understand how the process will work to get the most of it. 

The most important thing you can do to ensure the best therapy results is to have an open dialogue with your potential or current physical therapist. Only proper communication can give you all the information you need and help the therapist better understand your situation. 

Asking questions gives you the ability to explain your issues to your therapist, understand the treatment steps, intricacies, and how you can contribute to your healing. 

Here are 10 important questions to ask your physical therapist during your first appointment. 

If you're experiencing joint pain in the knees, ankles, hips, back, or elbows, there's a high chance you have arthritis. Arthritis is one of the leading causes of joint pain in the world.

One of the common misconceptions about arthritis is that it's just an older person's problem. However, it can affect anyone - even very young people or children. 

Physical therapy for arthritis is one of the few ways to approach treatment and pain management. It's often the most sustainable too. 

Physical therapy is an effective way to treat and manage various medical conditions, including arthritis, joint disorders, neurological problems, and injuries. 

The most common question during the first meeting with the therapist is how long the physical therapy sessions take?

There is no one-fits-all answer as the treatment duration and sessions depending on the particular condition, treatment plan, and progress.

Each patient will have a thorough diagnosis and evaluation, and the physical therapist will create a program to suit their needs.
