What is good posture and why is it so important?

Posture refers to the body’s alignment and positioning with respect to the ever-present force of gravity. Whether you are standing, sitting or lying gravity exerts force on our joints, ligaments, and muscles.

Good posture entails distributing the force of gravity through our body so no one structure is overstressed. Ideal body alignment is when the body weight is balanced over the spine and lower extremity joints requiring minimum muscular effort. This alignment also evenly distributes pressure on the intervertebral discs and avoids excessive stress on the ligaments.

Your back is the work-horse of the body and it’s important to take good care of it on a daily basis. Strengthening exercises are key to maintaining good posture as well as not sitting for extended periods of time. Stretch breaks or walks during your lunch break can help to relax your back and reduce stress.
