How's Your Posture?

How's Your Posture?


The problem is not the result of one injury or accident, but the result of many hours, days or even years of strain placed upon the joints and/or muscles because of poor posture and/or stressful living or working habits. For example, sitting at work or in a car in a slumped position, standing with the stomach muscles relaxed and the back in a swayed position for hours, or holding the head in a forward position too much of the time can cause strain. Back muscles become long and weak allowing the head to fall forward and the shoulders to roll in, collapsing the chest and restricting respiration. Respiratory muscles become weak and breathing patterns are altered and without receiving proper oxygen energy levels are lowered and the body is weak. Hamstrings along with hip flexors become short and tight and the individual looks older than they are in years.

With proper exercise and direction of a qualified trainer this process can be reversed.

If you are interested in becoming strong more flexible and developing proper breathing patterns call for a complimentary assessment session.
