The Importance of Proper Posture
Posture is the way in which we hold ourselves whether sitting, standing or lying down against the force of gravity. We have all been advised to maintain good posture since childhood and with good reason. Posture plays an important role in our overall health. As it turns out, there are two types of body posture; dynamic posture and static posture. Dynamic posture is how you carry yourself while moving about, performing activities like walking, running etc and static posture is how you carry yourself in a static position like standing or sitting. Maintenance of good posture ensures that your spine is positioned appropriately in both scenarios.
