Poor posture is becoming a common health concern today. However, the issue is that most people do not consider it a ‘problem’. Once considered as a sign of ageing, poor posture now affects young men and women, as well as children.
Poor posture can be observed when:
This uneven posture can affect someone’s visual appearance, confidence levels, and can lead to physical problems such as arthritis, joint pain and muscle tension.
Although there are many common causes of poor posture, it is important to remember that posture begins at the feet and works its way up towards the knees, hips, spine, shoulders and head.
Some of the methods used to determine poor posture include conducting self-evaluation tests to see if there is a mismatch in the way your body looks in the mirror.
Correcting posture is a process which involves a mix of stretching and strengthening exercises, awareness of poor postural habits, and even good nutrition.
