A lot of times you must have heard advice regarding your back. “Don’t arch your back!” “Sit straight and maintain your posture!” Maintaining your posture plays a critical role in maintaining your overall health.

We often spend copious amount of time sitting in front of the laptop, television and computer. We also study in front of our notes. All of these things can lead to slouching and an unhealthy posture.

These may cause various health risks and injuries like neck pain, shoulder pain, and may even hamper with the ability of your lungs to expand. There are many long-term detriments that could possibly affect your day-to-day physical activities, like chronic body ache, back injuries, knee injuries, muscle stiffness, and breathing problems.



Reasons for Maintaining Your Posture

While there are many reasons for having a bad posture, one of the most common causes of bad postures leading to chronic aches are carrying backpacks and sitting in the same, uncomfortable position for a long period of time.

In today’s day and age, people tend to spend a lot of time working. This causes them to sit in the same posture, bent over their laptops, computers, or smartphones.

According to popular belief, going to the gym leads to a good physique and posture. However, if gym activities are performed without appropriate supervision and guidance, it can do more harm than good. Exercises like bench-press and weightlifting need to be done under expert supervision, otherwise you might harm your muscles in the long run.

A visit to a chiropractic wellness center becomes necessary in case of a situation which involves injuries due to bad posture. A chiropractic doctor is one who deals with physical dislocations and injuries without the help of traditional medicine.

While your posture is important to maintain by keeping your back aligned and not applying unnecessary pressure on your spine, some things to keep in mind are:

  1. Do not pick up heavy items by bending completely and putting weight on your back and shoulders
  2. Make sure to avoid stiffness while sitting in one position for a long time.
