“Look Like & Feel Like A Professional At Work!” HOW BAD POSTURE AFFECTS YOU
When was the last time you looked in the mirror or saw a photo of your posture? If you suffer from frequent aches and pains, your posture may be to blame. In today’s society, we spend an increasing amount of time sitting looking at the TV, computer screen and looking down at our phones. If you fit into this category, then changes in your posture can have numerous negative effects on your body. What happens to your body with bad posture? Forward head posture – This creates strain on the neck, shortening the muscles in the back
of the neck. Neck pain, radiating pain to the shoulders or arms, chronic headaches and even low back pain can result. Mid-back slouching – This can change the shape of your ribs and drive your head forward over time. The result can be pain in the mid- back and problems with your neck. Eventually, compression of your lungs, heart and digestive system can occur, causing internal problems. If you or someone you knowmay need relief fromback pain, schedule an appointment by calling our office at 770-622-5344 or visit www.johnscreekpt.com.
