Want red carpet posture? Read on!
“Desk Job Posture” is a real and painful thing. Spending too much time sitting in a hunched manner can cause several health issues including neck, shoulder, and back pain. Poor posture can lead to severe spinal curvature, breathing difficulties, fatigue, muscle strain, spinal restriction, nerve impingement, and joint restrictions. Prolonged poor posture can increase your risk for heart attack, stroke and several other systemic diseases. Studies have shown that sitting for 11 or more hours per day increased risk of death by 40 percent, regardless of other activity levels.
It is very important to sustain good posture and take breaks between periods of sitting at a desk. To supplement good posture it is very important to get chiropractic adjustments to release those tight muscles and joints to create the foundation of getting the best posture you can have. After the pain and spine are free of restrictions, exercise for the mid back and neck help to sustain the treatments. Not only is good posture good for you health, you’ll look fabulous too!
