Do you know that the way we stand, walk, sit and sleep affects our body health in more ways than we can imagine?
Standing and walking posture affects the way impact travels from our foot to our knee, spine and neck. Improper standing and walking postures cause knee, join and ligament injuries, back pain, shin splints and plantar fasciitis.
Improper sitting postures cause the spine to lose its natural S-shape curvature and lead to neck and shoulder pains, muscle imbalances, slipped disc, mushy abs, sciatica pain, deep vein thrombosis, varicose veins and many more. Constant hunched back also compresses our neck arteries, heart, lungs, stomach, intestines and bladder, causing poor blood circulation and reduced efficiency of these organ functions.
Improper sleeping postures also lead to neck pains, insomnia, breathing difficulties and snoring problems. Poor sleep quality will cause our body’s oxygen intake to be greatly reduced as well. This will lead to poor work performance in the day, lack of concentration and memory and mood swings. Low oxygen intake also causes higher risk of cancer.
