Posture is defined as the position where a person holds their body upright against gravity whenever they are standing, sitting, or lying down. When a person has a correct posture from either sitting correctly or walking straight, it can visually reflect on their health as well. A correct posture can ensure that the person’s joints and muscles, as well as the other structures of their body, is working properly. In a normal environment, a person does not consciously maintain a normal posture. What happens is that certain muscles in the body do the work and the person does not have to think about it. In some of the muscle groups, which includes the hamstrings, and large back muscles are vital since they help maintain proper form. Even though the ligaments in the body help hold the skeleton together, these postural muscles help prevent the forces of gravity from pushing a person forward when it is functioning properly. The postural muscles are there to help maintain a person’s posture and balance during movement as well. Many local healthcare professionals can help distinguish the most common effects of bad posture as they talk with individuals about the recommended actions that they should take to not only improve their stance but also enhancing their overall health and wellness. Even though sitting or standing improperly can occur unconsciously, when a person recognizes the issues and correct it can help them to develop healthier lifestyles.
