Good posture is without doubt the easiest way to avoid and manage back pain. According to our Stoke on Trent chiropractor, it can also make you appear up to 10 pounds lighter! When you slouch or slump your shoulders, your shoulders droop, your tummy is pushed outwards and you appear heavier than you actually are. When you adopt the correct posture, the opposite happens; your stomach is pulled in towards your abdominal muscles and you appear slimmer. Forget those silly fad diets – just change your posture!
You can check your posture now by standing with your back to a wall. If you stand with good posture, your shoulder blades, buttocks and heels should touch the wall and your ears, shoulders, hips and knees should be aligned. When you’re sat on a chair, your hips should be as far back as possible and your feet should rest flat on the floor.
Start improving your posture today – there couldn’t be a more simple way to look and feel healthier!
