How to Focus on Improving Posture for Better Health

By Genevieve Cunningham

How good is your posture? Some people can answer this question with confidence. Their posture is top-notch, and they work hard to keep it that way. But for the vast majority, the answer to this question is probably not good. As a whole, Americans have poor posture. And our technology-driven, sedentary lifestyles certainly don't help. But fortunately, there's hope for even the worst sloucher. If you want better health, take a look at how you can focus on your posture starting today.

Get an Assessment

It's hard to judge your own posture. Some people think they have good posture, when in fact, it's terrible. Others know they have poor posture, but they're not sure exactly where they're going wrong. Either way, ask someone to assess your posture. You can ask a friend or family member, your doctor, or another medical or fitness professional. Once you've gotten a little feedback, you can make a plan of action based specifically on your own needs.

Build an Exercise Routine

Believe it or not, there are specific exercises that can be done to focus on posture. These often include moves that target the back, shoulders, and core. Find a few ideas on YouTube, and then create a daily routine. At first, you may feel like the exercises are worthless. But over time, your muscles will begin to remember, and your posture will slowly improve without you ever noticing at all. 

Get Chiropractic Care

Good posture will definitely be affected if your spine isn't in good health. You need a healthy spine to hold you up and to fight off fatigue. To protect and improve your spine, consider trying chiropractic care. Chiropractors use gentle manipulation to gently adjust the body, remove joint restrictions, and release tension and pain. Over time, the spine -- and subsequently the whole body -- becomes stronger and healthier. And as a bonus, the chiropractor can probably give you additional tips for improving your posture as well. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to improve your spine and the health of your whole body. Start with this and a little focus, and better posture is sure to follow.
