Pay Attention to Your Posture!

By Donna Stark

Have you ever been on a slippery slope? And I am not talking about the slope that is covered in ice at the top of your driveway. I'm talking about the course of action or accumulation of bad decisions that eventually lead you to a really bad spot. Sometimes it is hard to tell when you start slipping down a slope like that but when you finally do land at the bottom, it can be pretty easy to look back and say, "That's where it all started," can't it? For me, my slippery slope began when I was young. I never cared about my posture and it showed. My mother warned me about it. My piano teacher scolded me over it. But I never took the time to pay attention to it. So I traveled on that slippery slope for many years and I can honestly say, it's not a slope that you want to step foot on.

Pay Attention to Your Posture!

The chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic want you to know that poor posture can have a tremendous impact on your overall health and wellness so the sooner you pay attention to it, the better! Take a look at some of the consequences you may face if you take that first step on its slippery slope.

  • Arthritis pain - Poor posture can lead to increased stress on your joints which can increase the risk of arthritis or exacerbate the pain you are already experiencing
  • Poor circulation - Spending hours sitting with poor posture can prevent your body from getting the necessary circulation it needs, which can lead to issues such as varicose veins and high blood pressure
  • Upper-body pain - Tension headaches and muscle strain in the neck, back, and shoulders are often a result of poor posture
  • Breathing issues - Your ability to breathe well is improved when your chest is open and your spine is in proper alignment so be mindful of how you hold and carry your body
  • Body functions - By practicing good posture, your body's nervous system and organs can be restored to optimal function
