Does Posture Matter?

Proper posture means the body is aligned so that all the muscles work as they were designed.

  • Ever feel low on energy?

  • Get sick often?

  • Experience headaches or digestive upset, like constipation or diarrhea?

  • Feel less agile than you used to be?

Your postural habits may be behind these symptoms!

Proper posture means the body is aligned so that all the muscles work as they were designed to. On the other hand, poor posture lead to inefficient movement, causing the muscles to have to do extra work. For instance, if the head isn’t resting correctly on top of the neck and spine but hovers over the chest instead, the muscles at the back of the neck have to remain contracted to hold the head up. The results? Circulation becomes hindered and oxygen and nutrients have a hard time flowing through the body. Contracted muscles are less able to receive hydration and energy and the tissue eventually becomes hard and fibrous. Eventually, muscles can pull bones out of alignment and cause serious problems and discomfort.

The bottom line is poor posture can lead to muscular stress and fatigue, which can in turn lead to deficient circulation, compromised immunity and poor lymph flow – which brings us back to low energy, frequent illness, headaches, digestive issues and waning agility. So to answer our earlier question, yes, posture matters.
