Straighten Up!

Ontario Chiropractic Association (OCA)

 

Good posture is easy to neglect, it’s hard to keep focused on how to carry ourselves throughout the day.
 
Much like eating right, exercising and getting a good night’s sleep, having great posture can have a positive impact on your life.  Many injuries can develop from poor posture. If not corrected, the long term effects of not straightening up your back can negatively affect the body, altering your body structure. An individual who suffers from this often experiences fatigue, achy muscles, strain and pain in lower back and chronic headaches.
 
You can improve your posture by taking a few moments everyday day to participate in active stretching and engage in strength building exercises. Introducing daily activities into your lifestyle is a simple and effective way to keeping your posture in check.
