Can you believe that bad posture is the culprit of many cases of back pain???
The American Chiropractic Association notes that back pain is one of the leading causes of missed work days in America, and up to 80% of the population will experience back pain in their lifetimes. Poor posture is one cause of back pain that is entirely preventable. By adopting behaviors that modify and improve your posture now, you might end up avoiding the unpleasant consequences of a misaligned spine. Harvard Health reports that poor posture is often the result of looking down toward an electronic device, slouching, or physical labor that many jobs require. Fortunately, there are ways to improve your posture with the help and supervision of Dr. Noor and his team at BodyPro Chiropractic & Sports Medicine. Harvard Health notes that it’s never too late to start improving your posture, as there are many benefits to modifying your alignment, and it is often simple to implement behaviors that can help.
The diagram below shows the proper alignment of the three natural curves of the back. Good posture ensures that these curves maintain their healthy shape, while poor posture can cause tension and pain across different parts of the back by shifting these curves out of alignment.
The Mayo Clinic claims that the benefits of good posture are plentiful, including injury prevention, pain reduction, reduction of breathing problems, and improvements in mood and productivity. There are other health and psychological benefits to bettering your alignment, and maintaining good posture can help increase self-esteem. Healthline notes that improved circulation and digestion, increased self-confidence, and a taller appearance are additional benefits of good posture.
