The modern way of life leads to the fact that most of the population has problems with their posture. The reason for this is constant sitting, low level of fitness and rare physical activity. Still, when the muscles of the back are not strong enough, the main load lies on the spine. This problem is particularly acute in people who are overweight. Therefore, quite a lot of people are interested in the question of how to correct the posture. In fact, this topic is quite complex and requires a comprehensive study. The constant stoop during work at the table makes our spine memorize this position, and then it is transferred to walking and other actions.
Think about how often you see round-shouldered people. This happens unconsciously. Even if you specifically try to keep your back straight, then it is worth distracting you, and it will return to its original position. Incorrect posture causes a lot of health problems. You can have chronic headaches, pain in the heart, neck and lower back.
