Sustaining good posture is not only essential for spinal health—it allows sufficient oxygen to reach the lungs, promotes healthy head-to-toe circulation, and even supports our mood! But when we’re slouched at a desks, necks bent toward our phones, and feeling the weight of the world on our shoulders, perky posture tends to fall by the wayside.
The good news is that healthy alignment doesn’t have to be hard—especially when you make it active. Adopting a postural arrangement that supports your spine, will activates muscles throughout your trunk and core that will leave you feeling energized and strong.
Even better, the active engagement in a healthy posture not only promotes musculoskeletal health in the long term, but will gradually improve your strength and metabolism as well.
Improving—and simply becoming aware of—your posture is simple when you incorporate a few simple and soothing movements into your day. In this video, Dr. Tom Oddo demonstrates what good posture looks like and demonstrates how these simple movements throughout the day can reset and strengthen your body.
