Yoga For Posture Improvement – The 7 Steps To Better Posture
How do we improve posture? It is a question that is becoming increasingly relevant in today’s society.
Forward head posture – and its more advanced relative, hyperkyphosis – is rampant in today’s sedentary, computer-centric society. Forward head posture can cause strain and tightness in the muscles of the neck and shoulders, potentially resulting in shoulder and neck pain, headaches, jaw pain, and in its more advanced stages, even compressed chest and breathing issues.
Worse, if forward head posture develops into full-fledged hyperkyphosis, it creates a host of additional health issues. In the last few decades, researchers have become increasingly concerned about the health effects of a hyperkyphotic posture. And what they are finding is not pretty.
You’ve heard about osteoporosis and how important it is to prevent osteoporosis-related loss of bone mass to avoid fractures as you get older. But here’s what you probably haven’t heard: A slumped forward posture—if allowed to mature into the full-fledged hyperkyphosis of old age—puts you at risk for the exact same issues as osteoporosis.
Yes, you heard that right – hyperkyphosis is a risk factor for the same problems as osteoporosis, including greater risk for vertebral fractures, greater risk of falls, and fall-related fractures. And not only that—it is a contributing factor to a host of other health issues as well.
