Having the correct posture means more than just looking a certain way, it’s taking control of your spine health and acknowledging that its the central support for your whole body. With this month being correct posture month at AICA Atlanta, caring for your spine has never been more important.
The Path To Positive Spine Health
Taking care of your spine is not only great for your back but the entire body as a whole. Here is how to start putting your spine health first!
Get up and move!
When you implement exercise into your routine, your muscles will strengthen and provide that needed support to your spine. Your spine is responsible for holding you up right and helping you walk and run so sitting in the proper position will keep your spine in the most pristine condition. Starting off with exercises like sit-ups and even toe touches will build those muscles needed to support the spine. Once your workout regime takes off, your body will notice quite the difference and if working with a chiropractor your adjustments will ultimately last longer.
Check Your Posture
When you are walking or sitting, think about how your back is positioned.Are you slouching over, is your head down, are your shrugging your shoulders? Take a moment when in these positions and re-adjust to give your spine a chance to straighten out.
Being more aware of how you stand or sit is the first step in adjusting your posture. Every movement you make, take a moment and think about your spine and make adjustments accordingly. Taking these steps can help to minimize pain in the back and the neck and reduce strain on the body. Posture, although physical, when made a priority can even positively affect one’s mental health.
