Previous Next 1 of 9 Why is good posture important?

When it comes to posture, your mother knew best. Her reminders to stop slouching were good advice.

This decreases the abnormal wearing of joint surfaces, reduces stress on the ligaments holding the spinal joints together and allows your muscles to work more efficiently. Good posture can also help prevent muscle strain, overuse disorders, and back and muscular pain.
