The modern way of life makes us not notice the way how we hold our bodies. Usually, we see that something is wrong when we start feeling pain. Pain is usually in the back and neck area.
So what is happening, why do we feel pain?
When we are sitting too much on a computer or using our mobiles for too long, we put pressure on the body, so our body takes the position where we feel most comfortable. When using our computer we naturally want to see the desktop better, so we band our neck toward the desktop, the same is with the mobile.
MUSCLE MEMORY? WHAT IS THAT?
There is something called muscle memory, which means that our body is learning how to deal with new positions.
The more we practice new positions, the more our body memorized it. How the muscles take the position is pulling the whole body, so our body posture is changing too. There is something scary about it, we don’t feel it!
DID YOU KNOW?
Often we can’t see what is happening, till somebody tells us. When we put our body posture out of balance, we make pressure on the muscles in the back, and on the spine, we make our tendons tense, we put our hips in disbalance what is leading to problems with knees, and we also risk having some disc problems and respiratory problem, as well shoulder pain.
DO YOU RECOGNIZE IT?
The most common type of bad body posture is the forward head, which teenagers often see. Our head is too much forward in this position, making pressure on the neck, sometimes even bumps.
What is the outcome of this? - neck pain and feeling like the neck is blocked.
The second most common bad posture is swayback position and kyphosis. This makes back pain in the middle and upper back, as well as in the neck. Swayback is common with young people. This position makes pain in the lower part of our back.
NO NEED FOR PANIC, YOU CAN FIX THIS!
With exercises, you will make your muscles stronger and not only the muscles but your bones, tendons, and spine. Strong muscles and tendons will pull back the body in the right position.
