“Feel Younger. Move Better. Get Stronger.” 6 BENEFITS TO GOOD POSTURE

INSIDE: HowPoorPosutreContributesToBackPain RelieveBackPain InMinutes HealthyRecipe PatientSuccessSpotlight

If you suffer from back or neck pain, poor posture could be to blame. Poor posture can be a serious danger to your health. If you have poor posture, your bones are not properly aligned, which increases strain on your muscles, joints and ligaments. Poor posture causes fatigue, muscular strain and pain. In addition, poor posture can affect the position and function of your vital organs, such as your heart, lungs and intestines. Maintaining good posture can have a dramatic improvement on your back or neck pain, health, energy and the way you look and feel. Some of the perks of good posture include: 1. Constant exercise for your back and abdominals. Holding good posture takes effort and makes you use the muscles in your back and abdomen properly. 2. It greatly improves your breathing. Good posture makes room for your lungs to function at their best – rather than being compressed when you hold your body in a slouch. Good lung function has a healthy impact on all aspects of your body’s functions and helps to reduce pain. 3. Itprotectsyourorgans,bones, jointsandmuscles. Holdingcorrectposture reduces unnecessary strain and pressure on these body parts. Most neck TWO FREE WORKSHOPS EACH MONTH! WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

and back problems develop from poor posture over time.

4. It prevents arthritis. With poor posture, unnatural pressure is placed on your joints, leading to wear and tear.This in turn can lead to arthritis. Good posture gives your joints the chance to function at their best. 5. It helps you use your muscles more efficiently. With your bones and joints in correct alignment, you are likely to feel more energetic since your body will require less energy to move about. 6. Itcanhaveadramatic impacton thewayyoufeel. Whenyouholdyourself in good posture, rather than a slumped one, you send signals to your brain that makes you feel happier and more confident. It also changes the way that people see you – you’ll appear more confident and assertive. Making simple changes in your daily habits can improve your posture and reduce your pain. Postural restoration at Kinetix Physical Therapy helps the body recruit the right muscles for the task at hand, improving pain prior to restoring function. Our experts have years of training in reducing back and neck pain associated from poor posture.

The lower back supports most of the weight of the body and therefore is the most vulnerable to the effects of poor posture. Discs,whichprovidesupportbetween thespinalbones (vertebrae),arealso affected from poor posture. However, with good posture, the spine is in properalignmentand theshockabsorbingdiscsarenotassubject to injury. Often with poor posture, the spine will become fixed in an abnormal position.
