The Importance of Recognizing Proper Posture

By Debra Rodzinak

Knowing the difference between good and bad posture helps when dealing with back pain.  There are some simple but extremely important ways to keep the back and spine healthy.  More than just cosmetic, proper posture and back support are critical for those who sit for hours daily sitting or standing at work.

Problems with Poor Posture

Muscle strain and stress on the spine are caused by poor posture.  Over time, poor posture can change the way the spine sits, which leads to back problems such as muscle strain, disc slippage, and joint deterioration.  Any time the spine is not working optimally, pain in the back, neck, arms, hands, or feet, along with headaches can occur. 

Identifying Proper Posture

On the other hand, knowing and identifying good posture can lead to correcting these aches and pains.  Balance and support are found with proper posture.

When standing, draw an imaginary straight line from the earlobe down through the shoulder, hip, knee, and finally to the middle of the ankle.  When sitting, try to get up and move around every half hour.  Investing in an ergonomically designed office chair can also help support the back.

A sturdy house begins with a good foundation and a sturdy body begins with a good spinal foundation.  Proper posture is dependent on proper spinal alignment.  A qualified chiropractor can ensure that your spine is in proper alignment.  The experts at The Joint use gentle spinal adjustments to bring your spine back to proper alignment.
