Why is having correct posture important anyway?
Think of your posture as if it were an everyday brick and mortar house, your posture being the complete house.
Now if one of the walls wasn’t aligned correctly or was damaged in some way then it would be considered weak, it’s not going to be able to support the rest of the house, the rafters holding the floors up, the roof etc, as it should.
With this wall not performing to its maximum potential, the surrounding walls suffer with increased pressure on them.
Your body is the same, if you have poor posture this can cause any one of your muscles to stop working as it should, or stop working all together in some cases.
The surrounding muscles will then have to take on the extra work load to support you. If not corrected this can lead to a life of aches and pain.
Here’s just some of the top reasons why having correct posture is important. As you can see from this short list, everyone can benefit from having correct posture.
- Your body parts will be in the best position to allow for your bones to be used most effectively, if you suffer from any form of arthritis such as osteoarthritis you’ll know how important this is.
- Your muscles won’t have to perform as hard as they would if you had bad posture. With your muscles performing as they should you minimize the risk of muscular related injury.
- You will suffer less aches and pains associated with having bad posture, such as:
- Aches, pains or stiffness in your hips (caused by having forward tilting hips, common in people who sit down often and not stretching often enough, this resulting in tight hip flexors)
- Lower back pain (caused by having an exaggerated arch in your lower back, again sitting down too often can cause this)
- Aching or stiff shoulders (caused by having hunched or rounded shoulders)
- Pain or stiffness down the back of your neck (caused by having forward head posture, if you have correct posture your ears should align with your shoulders)
This infographic shows some other reasons good posture is important to your health.
With just these few reasons in mind, you can see just how much having correct posture really will be of benefit to you. Think about it, don’t we all owe it to ourselves to eliminate all of these problems from our daily lives to live a happier, healthier and more pain free lifestyle by just making a few changes to our bodies?
