Have you had a chance to read our latest blog post yet? If you have, then you already know about a few of the many benefits associated with maintaining good posture. Unfortunately, maintaining good posture is often easier said than done. But luckily for you, our chiropractors in Evansville are here to help. Here are a few tips to improve your posture each and every day.
1. Build Your Core
Whether you’re sitting or standing, straightening your spine can be tiring if your core muscles aren’t strong enough to help support it. Building your core makes it so much easier to maintain good posture, and exercises, like yoga and pilates, can help.
If you work at an office and are hunched over a computer for hours at a time, then stretching throughout the day is essential for your posture. When you open up and stretch, you are helping to improve and maintain your range of motion. This will keep your body limber enough to maintain good posture throughout the day.
3. Move Around
The longer you are sitting or standing in one place, the more difficult it will be to maintain good posture. It’s easy to sit or stand up straight for short periods of time, so make sure you are switching it up throughout the day. After an hour of sitting, stand up or walk around for a while. After an hour of standing, stretch out and then sit down.
4. Be Cognisant
The most important thing you can do to maintain good posture throughout the day is simply to be aware of your posture. Every so often, take a second to think about the position you are in and make any necessary adjustments.
Good posture starts with a healthy spine, and if your spine is out of alignment, let our chiropractors in Evansville help you find the right solution. Schedule your appointment today.
