Why Practicing Proper Posture Makes Sense for Your Health

Dec 5, 2016

Standing and sitting with proper postural alignment will allow one to work more efficiently with less fatigue and strain on your body’s muscles and ligaments.

Keeping your spine in alignment and using correct posture are the most important things you can do for your back.

The lower back (lumbar curve) bears the majority of your weight, so proper alignment of this section can prevent injury to your discs, vertebrae, and other portions of your spine.

If you suffer from pain because of poor posture, schedule an appointment with one of the Chiropractors at AICA Snellville today for immediate support.

Maintaining Proper Posture

When a nerve becomes irritated, the body cannot function properly. Remove any source of irritation by keeping your spine healthy and aligned.

You will also need to make adjustments to your daily sleeping, sitting, and standing habits. Your workspace may need to be repositioned to keep your spine from slouching.

What does your optimum ergonomic workstation look like?

No matter how perfect the environment, sustained, static postures will impede blood circulation and take a toll on your body.

The Importance of Stretching

The spine is made for movement, and when sitting in any type of office chair (even an ergonomic office chair) for long periods of time, it is best to get up, stretch, and move around frequently throughout the day to recharge stiff muscles.

Being aware of good posture is the first step to breaking poor postural habits and reducing stress and strain on your spine.

The big payoff with good posture is that we move gracefully, have more energy, and feel healthier.
