Proper Posture During Daily Activities

Proper Posture During Daily Activities

It's easy for us to get into bad habits when it comes to posture.  That's because it's not something we think about very often.  But the results of poor posture can be detrimental to our health.  So here are a few simple tips you can use to help improve your posture and prevent and negative effects.

When using a cell phone or tablet, hold it at eye level so you're not looking down for extended periods of time.

When sitting, sit with back straight, hips and knees at 90 degrees.

And finally, don't get stuck in one position too long.  If your job requires sitting at a desk all day, be sure to get up and move every 30-60 minutes.

Not following these tips can lead to issues such as neck pain, headaches, low back pain, shoulder pain, sciatica, and others.  If you're experiencing any of these please call us at 636-272-7473.
