Sitting and standing with proper postural alignment will mean less fatigue and strain on your body’s ligaments and muscles.

Being aware of good posture is the first step to breaking old poor postural habits and reducing stress and strain on your spine.

Portishead Chiropractic Clinic are seeing an increasing number of people suffering with low back, neck and headaches as a result of their sedentary lifestyles with poor posture a very common problem.

A prime example is “text neck” a modern-day phenomenon caused by an increased usage of our smart phones which has been associated with neck pain and headaches especially in adolescents.

The main culprits are an increase in screen time, incorrect desk set ups, hot desking, long working hours and commuting.

All these positions have a common theme, sitting stationary for longer periods of time. Incorrect posture itself does not mean that you will encounter back, neck, shoulder and hip pain, but over time you are more likely to eventually suffer.

What should you do?
