Poor posture can be caused by a number of factors; everything from the shoes we wear on a daily basis to the way we sit while eating dinner make significant contributions to our posture. Good posture is defined as the most effective positioning of our bodies to withstand the force of gravity. Poor posture develops as a result of various factors, some associated with the structure of the body, often generated by a misalignment of the bones in the feet, and additionally factors of our environment. Because poor posture can negatively affect our health, requiring medication or prescription drugs for muscular stress and back pain, taking steps to improve posture will return many health benefits in the long term.

Determining whether your bad posture is caused by environmental factors or structural factors is the first step in correcting bad posture. Speaking to a shoe specialist (at your local running store) or your physician may help to rule out the underlying causes of your posture issues. Many specialists recommend the Alexander Technique, a program where a teacher observes and corrects your posture while you carry out a series of tasks, as the most viable posture correction program, however yoga and other exercise programs have been proven to improve posture as well.

Improving poor posture is extremely important, as it can lead to chronic muscle pain, as well as stress on the nervous, digestive and circulatory systems. Although correcting poor posture habits can be difficult, by becoming aware of our bodies’ natural position and taking initiative to improve it, your bad posture can become a thing of the past.
