When you have good posture, you sit, stand and walk so that your skeleton is properly aligned. Proper posture also evenly distributes your weight and balances your body. When you have bad posture, it can cause some serious damage to your joints.
Poor posture moves your bones out of alignment, shifting the balance of your weight and putting stress on your joints. Having bad posture can cause chronic joint pain, as well as limited range of motion in your hips, shoulders, spine and knees.
Bad posture does not cause a noticeable difference when you and your joints are young and strong. This changes as poor posture takes effect over time and your joints begin to age. Uncorrected, bad posture can cause the loss of flexibility in your joints, pain and difficulty sitting or standing for long periods of time. Poor posture can also be a contributing factor to osteoarthritis.
To protect your joints from pain, stress and possible deformity, you must practice good posture. Being aware of your posture as much as possible will help you naturally correct any damage.
Has poor posture already started to take effect? Consider stem cell therapy as an option, a safe and effective alternative to traditional orthopedic surgeries or prescription medications. This procedure takes stem cells straight from the patient and injects them into the site of pain to boost the body’s natural healing process.
