Posture Problems

Posture refers to the position we take when sitting, standing, walking or when carrying out daily tasks. The ideal spine is neither too straight nor too curved but has three gentle curves – cervical, thoracic and lumbar – which balance each other so that no single group of muscles has to work overtime to keep the body upright.

Good posture is surprisingly effortless and can even make you look taller and leaner. Try using the image of being suspended by a thread attached to the crown of your head, to get the sense of length through your neck and spine.

The way we each stand is so familiar to us that we are often unaware of our postural faults which we have spent a lifetime acquiring. These can lead to other common conditions such as sciatica, upper back pain and headaches, this is particularly true during the adaptations during pregnancy.
