Most adults have had a parent or grandparent scold at them to stand up or sit up straight. Most would promptly oblige by straightening up our backs. It seems parents didn't need a chiropractic degree to understand that good posture leads to better health. But why is better posture beneficial? How do you achieve it even after becoming an adult? Read on as our Clermont Chiropractor explains.
Posture is how your body's muscles and skeleton work together to keep it upright. While parents may encourage good, straight posture to help a child grow up without slouching, good posture is much more important than just appearance. Your posture affects your breathing. It impacts how mobile you are and how muscles grow. Poor posture can result in pain and discomfort. It can even affect how organs in your body function. Good posture helps your body function at its best.
Good posture can help you breathe easier and look better. It will help prevent back pain by building strength in the muscles during optimal standing and sitting positions. It will aide in the function of organs like the liver, kidneys and digestive system. Perhaps most of all, good posture can help you feel better.
While posture is certainly important for children, it is also a significant factor in how adults look and feel. If you are an adult looking to improve your posture, the first step is to be aware of how you sit and stand more often. You may also benefit from a visit with our Clermont chiropractor.
