As such, the sedentary muscle cramps will begin to set in, thus making the workday quite torturous for some workers. The beauty with Yoga is that it encourages a greater sense of flexibility in the muscles, therefore lessening the likelihood of muscle cramps happening due to a sedentary work position. Furthermore, any good Yoga deep breathing or relaxation technique can actually help in offering a greater sense of stability to an office worker’s muscles, thereby reducing the risk of any muscle cramps occurring in the future.

The first sign of varicose veins is a swelling along the course of the veins. This may be followed by muscular cramps and a feeling of tiredness in the legs behind he knees. In some cases, the normal flow of blood towards the heart may be reversed when the patient is in an upright position. This results in venous blood collecting in the lower part of the legs and the skin becomes purplish and pigmented, leading to what is known as varicose eczema or varicose ulcers. Both conditions cause severe pain.

Sedentary muscles cramps are those muscle cramps that office workers get when they sit at their desks for much too long and oftentimes in the same, cramped positions that only encourage bad posture to appear. Just think of it like this: An office worker gets to work in the morning and then has to sit at his desk and in front of his computer for several hours during the workday. Sure, he or she will get a break for lunch, and maybe he or she will get up to go to the bathroom or the proverbial water cooler a few times during the day, but other than that, there really is not nearly enough motion for an office worker!
