What causes poor posture?

Many factors can contribute to poor posture and place stresses and strains on your body. From working on a laptop and hunching over a smartphone to slouching on the sofa, modern life is full of postural pitfalls. Activities and behaviours that involve repetitive movements or heavy labour can also add to postural problems. Sedentary lifestyles, excess weight and old age can all place an additional strain on the lower back and increase muscle fatigue and tension. Emotional factors like stress may additionally exacerbate your symptoms. As part of your treatment, we assess a wide range of external factors that are often overlooked.

What to do if you have poor posture?

Symptoms of poor posture can include rounded shoulders, changes in weight, bent knees when standing, back pain, body aches and pains, muscle fatigue and headaches. Over time, the wrong posture can lead to further back and neck pain, spinal dysfunction and joint degeneration. as well as the tightening of shoulder and hip joints.

In some instances, you can improve your posture and spinal health, simply by making a few lifestyle adjustments.
