Sit Right, Stand Upright: Bad Posture Means Bad Back
Did you know that bad posture can lead to persistent back and neck pain and at times, spinal injury? If you already have a spinal condition or don’t want to end up with one, make sure you adopt a good posture – yes, head up, shoulder back, no hunching, rear tucked under.
Identifying Poor Postures
How Poor Posture Hurts Your Back And Neck
The human spine has four natural curves that form an “s” shape. When you adopt a poor posture, the spine experiences pressure, which in turn influences the spine curves to change their positions, gradually. The spine is designed to help absorb shock and keep you balanced. So as the spinal position changes, this ability gets compromised.
Poor postures also leads to sore muscles. As you slouch, your muscles have to work harder to keep the spine stabilised and protected. The extra work causes muscles tightness and fatigue, leading to chronic issues with tight, sore muscles all the way from the neck down to the lower back.
When you have back pain, you may tend to adopt an unnatural posture out of the fear of creating more pain. Do not do this unless there’s a fracture or some serious problem, as you might get used to the wrong posture.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you might be suffering from posture-related back/ neck problems.
How To Attain A Good Posture
By improving your posture and if require, physical therapy (to ease the muscles if the back or neck pain is chronic) you can get rid of your posture-related back and neck pain pretty easily. However, if the pain persists and gets unbearable, seek medical help immediately.
