How to improve your posture

How to improve your posture

Bottom Line:

When discussing posture, we’re often referring to the overall position of your body as you stand, sit, or lie down.

Most experts would agree that a "good" overall posture involves physical positions that reduce stress on the body by balancing the load placed on the muscles and ligaments that support the spine.

If you've looked in the mirror and noticed that your posture doesn't look as balanced as you'd like - not to mention, doesn’t feel as balanced as you’d like - you may be wondering what you can do to improve it.

Why it Matters:

One of the best ways to improve your posture is through motion.

Changing positions frequently during the day, stretching, and specific postural exercises are all ways to improve your posture.

Good posture helps you keep your bones and joints in proper alignment, which helps reduce the wear and tear on your joints and decrease the strain on the ligaments that support your spine.

Here are some key takeaways:

  • Good posture means keeping your spinal curves aligned and weight evenly distributed.
  • Stretches and exercises can help improve your posture and reduce your risk of neck and back
    pain.
  • Standing desks have been shown to reduce back pain by over 30% when compared to sitting at a
    desk.

Next Steps:

When creating a plan to improve your posture, remember that stretching and exercising are essential.

Equally important is knowing where to start...

Our postural and movement assessments can help you determine the best strategy to help balance and improve your posture, especially if you’ve been living with pain.

THE DIVINE SPINE DIFFERENCE

THE DIVINE SPINE DIFFERENCE

Dr. Andrea has been a lifelong advocate of chiropractic care ever since she saw the difference it made in her younger sister’s life when she was just a child. After her sister was diagnosed with epilepsy and prescribed medication to treat the condition — which turned her into a shell of her former self — Andrea watched in amazement as chiropractic treatments stopped her sister’s seizures and negated her need for medication. From that moment on, Andrea knew she wanted to be a chiropractor so she could share the body’s amazing ability to heal itself with as many people as she can.
