For a healthy body and for a happy life, you have to maintain a healthy posture and a healthy back spine. Every move we make, puts pressure on our back and it can even prevent the internal organs to work properly. This isn’t safe and we have to prevent back pains and adding too much pressure to our spine. However, you don’t need to worry, because this doesn’t mean that from morning till the moment we go to sleep out organs are under pressure, but after long hours of work, or after a long period of stand-up work, the curvature of our back can become exaggerated and this is the moment when pain can occur and we can adopt an abnormal position.
The spine, same as our feet, gets the hardest job in our body as it is used in practically every movement we make and it takes pressure from other body parts such as from the neck, shoulders, head and our arms. As we walk, stand, sit, carry a heavy object or dance, our spine takes the pressure to keep our body erect but at the same time it also has to have the flexibility to make other kinds of movements while keeping our balance.
One of the following can be noticed when one has a bad posture: high shoulder, a forward stooping head, a rotated trunk (torso), a hunch back, a high hip, and a side-bent neck and one of the feet will be externally or internally rotated. Abnormal posture can result from trauma (like a car accident or fall), repetitive movements (turning your neck towards the monitor), and certain bad postural habits (sleeping on your stomach).
