It would surprise you how many people are walking around with poor posture. Having good posture can have a large impact on your quality of life. If you are feeling pain in different areas of your body, it can easily be caused by your posture. Maintaining good posture definitely takes a great deal of work, but it is completely attainable with effort and treatment. Revelation Chiropractic is here to talk about how poor posture can impact your life and what you can do to improve yours.
Why is Maintaining Good Posture Hard?
For most people, it is far easier to let your shoulder slump rather than keeping yourself in a good posture position. When you allow your pelvis to slouch backwards rather than keeping it tiled forward to keep that natural curvature of your spine, it can cause a host of problems. For some people, these postural struggles are because their body’s structure is built that way. For more people, they have positional causes for posture. Here are some of the causes for positional posture problems:
– General laziness
– Excessive weight
– Core weakness
– Muscle imbalance
– Pain in different areas of the body
– Lack of self-esteem
– Degenerative conditions
How Does Poor Posture Affect Your Daily Life?
The biggest problems that often comes from having poor posture is pain in different areas of your body that wouldn’t normally be there if you didn’t struggle with poor posture. When your body is chronically off balance, there is undue stress on different areas of your body. While many people attribute their pain to aging, it is more often caused by poor posture than anything else.
