Good posture doesn’t just mean that you can sit and stand up straight comfortably; it is actually so much more than that. Having good posture is just as important as eating healthy, exercising, and getting enough sleep. Having good posture allows your body to complete tasks with more energy and less stress and fatigue. Good posture is actually a key factor in being physically fit as well; you can’t be without it.
Having good posture is so important because it literally means that your bones are in the right places and your muscles, joints, and ligaments can work with each other in the way that your body needs them to. Without good posture, it is possible that your overall health could be compromised. The long term effects of bad posture can affect your bodily systems such as breathing, digestion, muscles, and joints, which could cause someone with poor posture to be constantly tired and unable to efficiently work.
Usually, poor posture comes from an accident or fall, but it is possible that it could develop from environmental factors or bad habits. Physical therapy is an effective way of treating and preventing poor posture.
