Hypokinetic diseases are conditions that occur from a sedentary lifestyle. "hypo" means less and "kinetic"means movement. So Hypokinetic diseases are caused due to lack of physical activity.

Examples could include obesity and complications arising from sedentary behaviour. Hypokinetic conditions could include:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Some forms of cancer
  • Back problems
  • Obesity
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Mental health
  • High Blood pressure
  • Heart disease

Hypokinetic conditions are the cause of 40% of back problems in the United States alone.[citation needed]
