Posture Correction

When you practice proper posture

  • You may feel fewer aches and pains. Good posture allows your spine to be as aligned and balanced as possible
  • You help to protect your joints. An aligned, balanced spine puts less force and pressure on your joints, which means less strain on joints and the resultant pains and headaches. Good posture also reduces the risk of wear and tear that can lead to limited range of motion and arthritis
  • You free up your breathing. In proper posture, your lungs and diaphragm have more room to expand and contract as you inhale and exhale.
  • You use your deep "core" abdominal muscles. Good posture and stronger abs go hand in hand. When you stand or sit in proper posture, you gently engage your abdominal muscles, which support your lower back.
  • You may feel more energized. Proper posture arranges our body in the most efficient position. The result? Efficient energy use and less chance of fatigue.
