Posture Correction Q & A

How do I know if I have poor posture?

Many people with bad posture may not even realize it. Those with prolonged bad posture can become normalized with the quality of their life and are unable to see the issues at hand. While a hunched back or slouched shoulders may visually represent bad posture, nagging pain, headache, fatigue, and muscle soreness are internalized signs of a need for posture correction. When your body aches you need to listen!

What are some results of poor posture?

The effects of poor posture are widespread. Here are some examples of poor posture and its results:

  • Muscle strain: Neck, back, and jaw strain leading to tension headaches
  • Poor hip stability and alignment: Causing both hip and knee pain
  • Hunched upper body: Pushes rib cage into lungs causes difficulty breathing affects energy levels and increases fatigue
  • Poor forward head posture: Tenses muscles under the chin causing pain and jaw popping
