Good Posture is important!

Your Mum told you so, right?Wooden body form

Posture is the position in which you hold your body upright against gravity while standing, sitting or lying down.

The Good…

Good posture involves training your body to stand, walk, sit and lie in positions where the least strain is placed on supporting muscles and ligaments during movement or weight bearing activities. Maintaining good posture involves training your body to move and function where the least strain is placed on the body.

Good posture also improves the physiological function of your body, while improving your appearance.

The Bad…

Poor posture is not simply an aesthetic problem in our society. It’s a modern day epidemic that affects the lives of millions of people and it has been shown to lead to earlier bad health. Research indicates that children as young as 10 years old are demonstrating visible spinal degeneration.

The health effects of a hyperkyphotic thoracic spine (too curved mid-back) are impaired breathing ability and function, decreased physical strength and endurance, increased risk of spinal fractures and early death.

Poor head position contributes to osteoarthritis in the neck. This can lead to pain, poor stability against gravity and increased falls. To maintain proper posture, you need to have adequate muscle flexibility and strength, normal joint motion in the spine and other body regions, as well as efficient postural muscles that are balanced on both sides of the spine.

In addition, you must recognise your postural habits at home and in the workplace and work to correct them, if necessary.

Your posture has a positive or negative influence on the daily activities that you do. The return on investment for better posture will be astounding in later years.
We simply cannot afford to neglect our posture needs.
