A Quick Primer About Poor Posture


When you were young, you were reminded to maintain proper posture when sitting, standing, and even playing. Most of the time, you would rubbish that until you come to suffer the same as a grown-up when you realize that it is becoming very hard to achieve due to our poor and uncontrollable lifestyles.

Some common lifestyle causes of poor posture include:

  • Sitting for long hours
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Using electronic devices
  • Lack of physical exercise
  • Carrying heavy backpacks

For instance, you could have a forward head posture, whereby your head is held in Front instead of it being positioned above your shoulders. This posture exerts unnecessary pressure on your back muscles and neck.

Do you know that for every inch forward your head is on your shoulders, its weight increase by up to 10 lbs? This puts extra weight on your muscles and causes them to constantly contract without your knowledge.

The added weight on your skull is enough to cause headaches and burning pain between your shoulder blades and even make you experience numbness and a tingling feeling in your arms. Poor posture due to forward head positioning could restrict your rib movement and take a toll on your breathing, among many other issues.

Good posture indicates a balanced skeletal and muscular positioning and means that your joints are correctly positioned and will provide an optimal counter to inside or outside stress and protect your body against injury and progressive deformity.

An improper posture could indicate you are having a spinal misalignment in that your vertebra is improperly aligned. This could bring about digestive issues and have a toll on your respiratory and the blood circulatory system.
