How Good Is Your Posture?

Studies show that your improper posture will have devastating health effects for you if you leave it uncorrected.

It can affect you and your body in countless different ways from poor moods/mood swings and self esteem, to chronic muscle tightness, headaches and fatigue, and even to negatively impacting internal organs such as your heart and lungs.

Do you sit at a desk all day?

Your posture while sitting at a desk all day is having a negative impact on your health. You may first notice a tight neck or back, then you might feel your shoulders getting tense or tight or an ache in between your shoulder blades that you just can’t get rid of, and you could also be getting headaches a few times a month or week.

Do you have a very physical or repetitive type of job?

Chances are that if your job requires lots of repetition or a lot of lifting, carrying, standing in one spot, etc. that your body is now feeling the effects. There are many different ways you can feel aches, pains, or strains on your body and the amount and type of work you do is one of the biggest culprits.

Do you slouch or not sit/stand up straight?

Studies show that poor posture including the following play a huge role in how you function and feel:

  • Hunched shoulders/back
  • Head coming forward
  • Unlevel shoulders and/or hips
  • Head tilt
  • Increased low back curve
  • Sway back posture

Do you wake up feeling sore or do you feel sore after a long day of work?

These are two signs that your posture is working against you instead of for you.

Do you have bad posture, but no aches or pains?

Just because you currently don’t have any pain doesn’t mean that your posture isn’t having an impact or that you are necessarily healthy at all. The nerves that transmit pain signals to your brain only make up 8% of all the nerves in your body, so pain is often a poor indicator of overall health.

Let us help fix your posture, so that your body can more efficiently move, function, and heal.

Correcting your posture is something that takes repetition. Just like trying to physically change your body through a better diet or with proper exercise it’s all about the repetition. If you only ate well or exercised properly once a month or once a week it would be good for you, but you wouldn’t make lasting change.
