Want to impress that special someone this Valentine’s Day? To make a good first impression you need to look confident. Your posture is a key factor in helping you look and feel confident, your back will also thank you in years to come if you look after it now.
There are many benefits from having a good posture. These include:
- Reducing the risk of back pain,
- Improving our breathing
- Preventing our internal organs being squashed.
A good posture can also have some aesthetic benefits such as making us look taller, slimmer and younger!
These are really good reasons to encourage us to maintain a good posture.
Our posture is greatly affected by our lifestyle. In this day and age increasingly our lifestyle has a negative impact on our posture. Spending too many hours hunched in front of computers, sitting with bad seat set up in our cars to slouching for a few hours a night in front of the TV can all contribute to a poor posture.
Our team at Hounslow Family Chiropractic Clinic, are treating an increasing amount of patients that have poor posture. In these instances we recommend that these patients improve their posture by undertaking exercises and following tips and advice that can improve their posture.
We also suggest that they follow a program designed by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA), which helps to improve posture and prevents back pain by promoting balance, strength and flexibility in the spine.
It can be adapted to suit individual needs, so if you feel your posture could do with a makeover you can follow the Straighten Up UK in the video below.
Love your back this Valentine’s Day!
