Correct Posture Month encourages people to think about how posture can affect their overall health. Posture refers to the position a person’s body is in while they are sitting or standing.
Poor posture can negatively impact your health. Back problems are the most common problem. Side effects from medicines used to control back pain can have a huge impact on your physical and mental well being. Poor posture places more strain on the muscles and joints and can lead to arthritis.
