The Easy Way to Have Good Posture Perhaps when you were younger, you were often told to stop slouching and to bring your shoulders back. Does it really matter that we have a good posture? What difference does posture really make? There is actually a difference between having a good posture and a poor posture. It has been verified by research that a large percentage of back and neck injuries stem from repetitive misuse. Repetitive misuse is precisely the definition of poor posture. We all know that our spine has its own natural curves. The spine then cannot maintain its natural curves, if you walk around with a poor posture, and this can result in injury. When you have good posture, it means that you are properly maintaining your spine’s natural curves. The spine-stabilizing muscles then does their job. Poor posture causes repetitive misuse to the spine since people are not aware of it. Most people are not educated on what poor posture is, or how to avoid it. If you want to achieve good posture, here are some easy ways to do so.
