Proper posture and pain

Poor posture significantly increases the stress to the spine resulting in muscle tightness, fatigue and pain. here’s an example that you will be able to easily understand: Your mother always told you to stand up straight- and she was right! But why? Because proper (correct/good) posture is very important. If your head leans forward, it pulls on your shoulders and upper back. With your upper back now being pulled forward, it puts added stress on your lower back. It can even cause added stress on your hips and knees. Proper posture is good for your health, your mood, and even how you are perceived by others. Proper posture can help you stave off age related conditions and allows your vital organs plenty of room to do their job correctly.

Poor spinal posture is routinely addressed by chiropractors.
