Poor Posture

text neck.pngBesides the obvious wear and tear on your spine, poor posture can lead to many health problems. A forward head and rounded upper back not only overloads your body’s postural muscles, leading to biomechanical injuries, it also alters your chest and abdominal cavity.
Research has shown that a slumped posture can increase pressure on the heart and hinder cardiovascular function. When slumping down in your chair you may notice you can’t obtain as deep a breath as you would like, so this alone shows us that a poor posture can decrease our lung capacity and negatively affect the respiratory system.
More recent studies have shown that a poor posture also affects mood. A slumped posture can affect your frame of mind and your ability to be as happy as possible.
At Brisbane Posture and Performance our primary focus is addressing all of our valued practice members’ postural health. As seen above, poor posture is a serious condition that is more important than just keeping your shoulders back, which can impact many different aspects of your life.
