A good posture is usually characterised by proper alignment of core muscles with the skeletal system. When the body is not aligned, you can get a bad posture which may come to the fore in the form of hunching forward or drooping shoulders. A bad posture can arise as a result of an injury, habits or genetics.
All You Need To Know About Maintaining A Good Posture

What Are Some Of The Effects Of a Bad Posture?

The key areas of the body that often determine the posture of an individual include the neck, thoracic junction, lower back and cervical junction. 
A bad posture can lead to a myriad problems including:
  • Chronic back pain
  • A stiff neck
  • Slouching gait
  • Sore muscles
  • Spinal misalignment
If you have a bad posture, you should not fret since you can train your body to achieve its natural alignment using products such as posture correctors as well as through relaxation exercises like yoga, pilates and the occasional massage.

What Are The Benefits Of Maintaining a Good Posture?

Many people across the UK suffer from lower back pain and neck pain issues. These problems can be directly attributed to a bad posture. Having an upright posture usually strengthens the skeletal system and relieves pressure from the shoulders, spine and neck hence reducing the chances of these ailments.
A good posture also helps improve the balance of an individual. If your habits predispose you to a bad posture, you are likely to get hunched shoulders and a stooping gait that can negatively impact your body balance.
Staying upright and strengthening the core of your body will also help improve the movement and flexibility of your the joints in your upper body.
You should also practice having a good posture if you do not want to irreversibly damage your spine. If the core of your body remains misaligned for too long, your spinal cord may end up becoming permanently curved. This is one of the main reasons my people experience chronic back pains.
Staying upright also fosters better respiratory health. If your core is aligned, your lungs will have more space to expand meaning that you will be able to breath better.
Research also suggests that an upright posture can also reduce risk of depression, stress and anxiety. Studies show that people who maintain an upright posture tend to have better mental health.

Are Posture Correctors Effective?

If you have a bad posture, you can align your body using posture correctors. It is however worth pointing out that overuse or misuse of correctors can be detrimental to your overall health in the long run.
If you are looking to use a posture corrector, you should ensure that you factor the following considerations.
  • The comfort of the product
  • The area that you want to support – This should be determined by the parts of your body that are giving you a bad posture
  • The ease of using the corrector
Doctors recommended that posture correctors be used sparingly. If you use a corrector, it is advisable that you also start exercise regimens that will strengthen the core of your body. For example, you can take up yoga lessons and visit a masseuse occasionally.
