What causes BAD POSTURE?
Poor posture or “postural dysfunction” is defined as when our spine is being held in an unnatural position. The result of these unnatural positions are extra stress on our joints, muscles, and vertebrae.
Most often, poor posture is something that we naturally do without even noticing. Anyone can suffer from poor posture and if you begin poor posture at a young age, is it likely you will carry it throughout your life.
People are becoming more and more susceptible to posture issues because of the use of technology, forcing us to hold ourselves in unique positions to view a small screen.
Unless you are actively working towards good posture, you are most likely making some type of posture mistake without even realizing it.
Sitting, office work, holding smartphone and leaning forward trying to read what it says on this small screen, slouching.
What are the Negative Effects of Poor Posture?
✔ Low energy levels – bad posture causes shallow breathing that lowers your energy levels greatly.
✔ Chronic neck and back pain – Sitting or standing in slouched positions for any extended period of time puts extreme stress on your back and neck.
✔ Lack of oxygen flow in the body – when you have bad posture , your diaphragm doesn’t work properly and you don’t get enough oxygen.
✔ Heart problems – The muscle strain and poor posture of the spine and rib cage negatively impact your heart health,because of the lack of blood flow.
✔ Migraines and tension headaches – The strain placed on the body from holding oneself incorrectly, especially in sitting position, makes a person vulnerable to migraines and tension headaches.
✔ Lack of confidence – Many studies have shown a connection between someone who slouches and a lack of confidence and even depression.
✔ Digestion issues – Sitting for most of the day starts to constrict your intestines. Poor posture has been attributed to issues like lazy stomach, acid reflux and hernias.
