Posture is Important
We all take our posture for granted and rarely think about how our activities affect our posture and how our posture affects our health. Many of us don’t even know what good posture looks like. Here are a few tips from our friendly physiotherapist.
Poor posture can lead to pain, discomfort and loss of function. For example:
Good posture is the position of the body puts the least strain on the muscles and joints. Your posture is good when the shoulders are down and the back and the three natural curves of the spine are maintained while standing, sitting, lying down or being active.
What does good posture look like? From a side view if you were to put a straight line from your ears it should pass through the middle of your shoulders, knees and ankles.
Hints on maintaining good posture:
Check your posture using the reflections of shop windows or mirrors and correct if needed.
