Bad posture is a common problem for many people, as we live in a world full of activities leading to poor posture. Postural dysfunction (poor posture) is when our spine is situated in unnatural positions for extended periods of time, occurring as a result of one’s daily activities.
Some causes of poor posture include: slouching in a chair, hunching your back, improper understanding of correct posture, leading a sedentary lifestyle, not having an exercise routine, poor core stability, and looking down at your computer and/or cell phone for extended periods of time.
Why You Should Fix Your Bad Posture
Bad posture doesn’t only make you look unhealthy and unattractive. It also causes several health problems ; back pain, neck pain and headache, poor sleep, and lack of motivation.
Is Your Posture Bad?
Let’s examine some examples of poor posture versus good posture:
- Poor Posture: Rounded shoulders, slouching, head tilted forward, bent knees, pot belly
- Good Posture: Straight line from your ear to your shoulder to your hip, balanced and upright posture
