What Is Good Posture?

What Is Good Posture?

Good posture is not easy to achieve. For most of us, achieving good posture requires breaking bad habits of slouching when we type, text, or walking down the sidewalk. Good posture involves training your body, and the supporting muscles and ligaments, to hold your shoulders, neck, hips, and back in an upright position that is best for weightbearing.

The benefits of good posture are worth the effort of training your body. An experienced chiropractor can help you achieve good posture to improve your health.

Benefits of Good Posture:

  • Prevents backache and muscular pain.
  • Contributes to a good appearance.
  • Prevents headaches and fatigue.
  • Decreases risk of abnormal wearing in your bones and joints.
  • Increases lung capacity.

Correct Sitting Position

  • Sit with your back straight and shoulders back. Relax your shoulders down.
  • Your buttocks should touch the back of the chair.
  • Distribute weight evenly between both hips
  • Bend your knees at a right angle
  • Try to avoid sitting in the same position for more than 30 minutes

Correct Lifting Position

  • Do not attempt to lift by bending forward. Bend your knees and hips to lift the object.
  • Keep a wide base of support. Weight should be evenly distributed on both feet, shoulder width apart.
  • Look straight ahead, keeping your chest lifted and back straight.
  • Slowly lift by straightening your hips and knees. Hold the load as close to your body as possible.

Correct Standing Posture

  • Bear your weight evenly on both feet about shoulder width apart.
  • Keep your knees slightly bent
  • Tuck your stomach in.
  • Roll your shoulders back and stand tall.
  • Keep your head level with your earlobes in line with your shoulders.
