Most people attribute, at least to some degree, their neck or back pain to poor posture. Not surprisingly, these folks often rush to try a host of possible fixes that may range from exercise, massage, and chiropractic to yoga, Pilates, holistic therapies and workstation redesign.
A trip to the doctor's office is also included in the quest for good body posture — by some, at least —particularly if there's the pain.
But many of these well-meaning, albeit scared people have only a vague understanding of what posture really is, what causes problems with it and what kinds of things may help them improve theirs.
Good Posture Defined
Good posture is a form of fitness in which the muscles of the body support the skeleton in an alignment that is stable as well as efficient. This state of being called good posture is present both in stillness and in movement.
Causes of Bad Posture
Unfortunately, numerous factors one may encounter in life can get in the way of good posture. For more people than not, bad posture comes about by the day to day effect of gravity as it acts on our structure.
Bad posture may be due to an injury, a disease or because of genetics, the things that for the most part, you can't control. A combination of these factors is also quite common.
Determining the underlying factors to less than ideal posture may help guide you when choosing medical or holistic treatment, or when making lifestyle changes. To that end, here are 7 possible reasons why you may have bad posture. Consult with your licensed health provider for a deeper dive into any of these.
