Is your posture causing you problems?

When most people hear the term posture, they recall being told to stand or sit up straight by their mother or teachers since they were kids.

Posture comes from the Latin word ponere, meaning to place.  It’s defined as the position of the body or a way of holding the body. The important thing to realize about postural problems is that they can lessen the quality of your life as you age.

Your posture affects you more than you may realize. Since all of your soft tissue is interconnected (muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue.), a problem in one area of your body may affect another area adjacent to it.  For instance the muscles on one side of your lower back may tighten, causing your body to compensate by twisting in another area. This can effect different parts of your body in a negative way.
