STOP BREAKING YOUR BACK
80% of the population will experience back-pain at some point in their life, and according to the Mayo Clinic, poor posture is a leading cause of back pain. In fact, people who suffer from back-pain experience positive changes when they improve their posture.
THE ANATOMY OF BACK PAIN
Slouching can add strain to the muscles and put stress on the spine. Your muscles and ligaments struggle to keep you balanced, which can lead to back pain.
A healthy back has 3 natural curves:
- Cervical curve: An inward or forward curve at the neck
- Thoracic curve: An outward or backward curve at the upper back
- Lumbar curve: An inward curve at the lower back
Good posture helps maintain these natural curves, while poor posture does the opposite, which can stress or pull muscles and cause pain.
BREATHE BETTER, FEEL BETTER.
Keeping an upright posture helps open up the airways and ensure proper breathing. This allows more oxygen to flow through the cardiopulmonary system. The blood is then able to carry sufficient oxygen to the whole body and ensure that your nervous system, organs, and other tissues function effectively.
Training with UpRight ensures that each time you slouch, you learn to correct your alignment and maintain a healthy and comfortable posture.
