Why should you care about your posture?
By maintaining a good posture one can benefit by:
Keeping bones and joints in the correct alignment so that muscles are being used properly;
Decreasing the abnormal wearing of joint surfaces;
Decreasing the stress on the ligaments holding the joints of the spine together;
Preventing the spine from becoming fixed in abnormal positions;
Preventing fatigue because muscles are being used more efficiently, allowing the body to use less energy;
Preventing backache and muscular pain;
Contributing to a good appearance.
