Remember when your mom or dad would always tell you as a kid to, ‘stand up straight’? Believe it or not, your parents were trying to teach a very important and very easy way to maintain a healthy mind and body. Everything, from the way you sit and stand, to the way you sleep and walk are all part of your posture and can make a huge impact on the health of your spine, both negatively and positively.
When you practice correct posture, your body is in complete alignment with itself which can help alleviate moderate to severe health problems such as spine damage, back or neck pain, headaches, and fatigue. If you continually practice poor posture for a long period of time, it can lead to chronic health problems including long term injury to your spine.
