Good Posture? What is that?

Good Posture? What is that?

Good posture is more than standing up straight. You have posture when you stand, walk, sit, or take any action. Whatever body position, there is a right way and a wrong way. The right way reduces strain on the supporting muscles and ligaments.

Good posture does the following for you:

  • Keeps your bones and joints correctly aligned so your muscles work correctly
  • Reduces the stress on the ligaments that hold your spinal joints together.
  • Allows your muscles to function with less effort.
  • Lowers the risk of muscle strain and overuse disorders.

Common risk factors include: obesity, stress, pregnancy, weak muscles, tight muscles, high-heel shoes, lack of flexibility, poor work ergonomics, and bad habits when sitting and standing.

Sitting properly

  • Your feet should rest on the floor.
  • Crossing your legs is not advised.
  • Keep your knees at or below the level of your hips.
  • Support your low- and mid-back, either with a backrest or back support.
  • Get up and move about regularly when sitting down for long periods of time.

Standing properly

  • The balls of your feet should bear most of your weight.
  • Feet should be shoulder-width apart.
  • Let your arms hang freely at your sides.
  • Stand straight and tall with shoulders pulled backward.
  • Keep your stomach tucked in.
