Poor posture is so common – and it is responsible for so much pain! Not just from the strain and tension that you feel pretty immediately, but from the ongoing degeneration it can cause in the body’s tissues and structures. You wouldn’t drive your car without the wheels being properly aligned, right? So why do you put so much unnecessary mechanical stress on your body?
Poor posture can obviously create neck, back and hip pain – but it may also trigger headaches, constipation, insomnia, mood problems and even high blood pressure, to name a few. What makes this so problematic is that poor posture is incredibly common with most of us sitting for long periods of time every day – in front of computers for hours, then in the car, then slouching on the couch. And in between we add massive stress on our neck by staring down at our mobile devices constantly.
Apart from resolving pain and useless stress on your body, good posture makes you instantly taller, and can also help boost your confidence!
