Poor posture

Is my poor posture just a bad habit? 

I recall several times throughout my life where I was told to stand up straight, to pull my shouldersback, not to slouch forward like I was apparently doing – unknowingly of course. Maybe you’veheard that before as well? I remember feeling ever so slightly offended every time I heard thosewords, because in my head I was standing tall and straight as a die! The truth is, I probably didn’t have the best posture. Most people don’t. However, I’m sure we canall agree that good posture is a good thing to have. Not only is it more attractive than slouching, itmakes you seem taller (which I definitely welcome!) and it exudes confidence! But did you knowthat good posture is also important to balance? When you’re standing up straight, you centre yourweight over your feet. This also helps you maintain correct form while exercising, reducing the chance of injuries. Improving your balance could also strengthen your abilities in all kinds of sports and activities, such as dancing, skiing, running, golf and tennis. The cause of poor posture The problem is, poor posture isn’t necessarily a choice or a bad habit…There are many physical contributions, such as: ●Distorted spinal curves As you might know, an upright spine isn’t straight. There are three important spinal curves, one in the neck, one in the upper-midback and one in the lower back. When any of these curves are distorted, it could lead to, not only poor posture, but also any number of symptoms, such as headaches, back pain and muscle tension. ●Inflexible muscles Inflexible muscles can decrease joints’ range of motion. For example, if you have overlytight chest muscles, it can pull your shoulders forward, or if you have overly tight hipmuscles, it could pull your upper body forward1. ●Muscle strength We all know the importance of core strength. The core muscles of the back, side, pelvis,and buttocks form a sturdy link between the upper and lower body. When these muscles are weak, it could encourage slumping, which tips your body forward and thus offbalance1. There are, of course, many other causes of poor posture. Research shows that up to 90 per cent of people have poor posture2. But why is poor posture regarded as such a bad thing? When you are slouched for an extended period of time, it puts extra pressure on the spine. This could lead to a number of unwanted symptoms such as muscle tension and soreness, back pain, fatigue and headaches. But what ...
