Poor Posture Takes a Toll on Your Body
If you’re feeling sort of tense and achy, it may be because of poor posture.
While the media has jumped on warnings about “tech neck” — the neck pain and damage sustained from hunching over smartphones and other devices for too long — you’re actually risking harm to your overall health if just about any part of your body becomes misaligned.
That’s because a person’s posture affects and moderates every physiological function, from breathing to hormonal production. Yes, you read that right. Every physiological function. How so?
Our muscles and ligaments routinely work to balance us as we sit, stand, bend and sleep. Over time, however, uneven stress causes the body to adapt and change — subsequently causing aches and pains.
Multiple factors can contribute to poor posture — including injury, stress, obesity, pregnancy and weak postural muscles. Chiropractors have been specifically trained, as part of their minimum seven years of higher education, to provide drug-free, hands-on care that helps to naturally align and strengthen the spine, as well as advise on healthy lifestyle habits.
And speaking of habits, BodyTherapyPro is out with tips designed to help you develop smart ones regarding posture. Among them are these:
* Maintain a neutral spine, meaning chin up and shoulders pulled back.
* Avoid extended time spent with your head flexed forward.
* Don’t cross your legs while seated.
Follow these and accentuate your routine with some the highly effective Products that we have carefully chosen for you. We've done the homework so that you stay healthy!
