A big part of your spine health has to do with how you sit and stand. Having bad posture is, unfortunately, not something we do in isolated occurrences. As a result, bad posture is usually the result of bad day-to-day habits.
Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center goes over a few ways to perfect your posture, which will pay off big time when it comes to your overall health and wellness.
Sit with your shoulders angled back slightly, pressing your shoulder blades together, which will help you balance your upper body weight and keep the pressure off your spine. Keeping this in mind, try to make sure that your lower back is slightly curved, which will help reduce lower back pain.
Legs at a 90-Degree Angle
Make sure your legs are out in front of you, your thighs and calves making as close to a 90-degree angle as possible. At the same rate, allow your feet to be planted firmly on the ground for even weight distribution.
Chin and Neck
Make sure that you look straight ahead and that your nose and chin point slightly upwards to reduce neck tension.
Try to use the same principles while standing, and watch your posture improve as your back and core muscle group gain new strength. Contact Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center to learn about how our treatments can help give you perfect posture in a few easy adjustments.
