Today I have a guest post about why teenagers need to make sure they have good posture and 5 tips on how to do that.
I have talked about in the past about how we can continuously abuse the natural spinal curves with bad posture and end up diagnosed with the 23 and 1/2 hour disease. Doing the opposite by trying to take care of how you’re sitting, standing and moving is not only important to how better you look but also your general nerve, muscle and joint health in the long-term.
Below Micheala will explain 5 simple posture exercise and handy tips for a teenager who could be in that poor posture stage and you are worried about them developing a hunch back or scoliosis looking spine. I like to say to patients posture is a sign of how your nervous system is feeling. You don’t see confident, happy people walking around with a slouched back and bad posture instead they look strong and a ‘perfect posture’ position. So your posture is important.
