Poor posture can negatively impact everyone, young and old. If younger individuals develop poor posture, it can decrease fitness and activity levels as they age, resulting in the potential of increased health problems.
Long-term effects of poor posture include:
- chronic headaches
- TMJ dysfunction
- shoulder pain
- pain in lower back
- tightening in legs
Since poor posture can negatively impact everyone, Alberta’s chiropractors are encouraging everyone to adopt this simple program into their daily routine.
The exercises outlined in the Straighten Up Alberta program can be done by anyone and don’t require equipment or special clothing, making it an ideal warm-up, cool down, stand-alone routine or simple ergonomic break that can be done anywhere.
