Many of us have jobs that we sit all day. After we work, we may go exercise but then watch TV, sitting until it’s time for bed. Excessive sitting is unhealthy for many reasons. Additionally, sitting can lead to bad posture. A chiropractor can help improve your posture and provide lifestyle tips to maintain a healthy, happy back.
Why is poor posture bad?
Poor posture leads to many struggles that may last for years to come. Hunching over all day creates back pain. This back pain can be debilitating. You may not want to partake in the activities that you love. When the back pain worsens, you can damage the surrounding muscles and joints.
Poor posture can make you tired. When you have poor posture, you are compressing your lungs. This means your body is getting less oxygen. Depriving your body of oxygen can cause fatigue.
Additionally, poor posture can make you appear less confident. Subconsciously, the human mind believes a person who stands up tall with their shoulders back to be a competent leader. Improving your posture can improve the likelihood of people taking you seriously.
