According to healthcare professionals, posture is medically defined as the position in which people hold their bodies while standing, sitting, or lying down, against the gravitational pull of the Earth. Health issues associated with posture, including back pain, low back pain, and sciatica, are the 3rd most common reason for doctor office visits. Proper posture allows the human body to be supported accordingly through proper alignment of the spine and the rest of the structures to allow the proper amount of tension and pressure to support the weight of the head against gravity. The weight of the average human head is approximately 10 to 12 pounds. However, the force of gravity on the neck when the head is tilted forward 45 degrees causes the human head to feel as if it weighs up to 49 pounds. Improper posture can cause a variety of health issues, including neck pain, back pain, low back pain, and sciatica. According to healthcare professionals, people spend an average time of 2 to 4 hours each day hunched over a smartphone or other device. This can ultimately cause health issues associated with improper posture. Signs of improper posture can include back pain, rounded shoulders, and a rounded upper back. Understanding how improper posture can affect your well-being is essential for overall health and wellness. Strong posture can help you be pain-free and feel your best. Custom foot orthotics can also help improve posture by supporting proper posture. Chiropractic care can also help improve back pain.
