This article has been written to highlight some of the more common examples of bad posture that I see almost every day. It gives a brief description and example of each type and lists the effected muscles (when applicable).
This is the first article I have written for this site and yes… I have chosen the most commonly talked about obvious topic. There are two main reasons why I chose to talk about sitting first.
- Firstly, sitting is without a doubt causing more postural problems for people than they realize.
- Secondly, when I looked around the net the vast majority of articles seemed to be over simplified, or trying to sell so called ‘ergonomic’ office furniture or back supports.
