Complexities with Bad postures you must be aware of

We all have been taught for making right posture since our childhood. However, the reason behind this saying means a lot. A bad posture not just disturbs the aesthetic appeal of a person but also give birth to unsound health hazards that sometimes lead to long term complexities. Hence, the complexities with bad postures can in turn end in hefty medical expenditures.

Kinds of bad postures:

  • Leaning forward

The sedentary lifestyle and long sitting hours in front of computers and handheld devices makes people tired and compel them to lean forward that creates the bad posture.

  • Inappropriate seating

Crossing leg over leg or sitting too far or on the edge of the chair causes strain on the spine.

  • Slouching

Most of the crowd is guilty falling into this posture. When a person while standing, sitting or walking with the shoulders hanging forward and the head bent slightly over is addicted to slouch.

Health related disorders due to bad postures

  • Gastrointestinal reflux
  • Headaches
  • Disturbed sleep patterns
  • Lower back ache
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Ways to Maintain a Good Posture

The spine must always be maintained in a healthy posture for the body to do normal activities. A good posture means that all the bones and the skeletal system of the body is aligned. On the other hand, misaligned bones and skeletal system leads to a bad posture which in turn leads to several other problems of the spine and thereby the entire body.

Good posture happens when all the bones of the body fit properly with one another respective of their joints and there is no problem in being upright against the force of gravity. When the muscles and bones are aligned in the right manner, the muscles, bones and joints do not go through any type of pain. On the other hand, a poor posture of the body leads to pains in the joints, bones as well as the muscles leading to several other health issues.

There are many ways in which a good posture of the body can be maintained:

  • Yoga: Yoga is an ancient holistic system that helps the body maintain a good posture. The technique focuses on poses and achieving peace of mind. Yoga must be done under the guidance of an instructor who tells people on how to work on the different muscles and parts of the body. Yoga helps in pain management and also in injury healing. In fact, yoga is known as a successful and effective technique for managing chronic back and neck pain.
  • Chiropractic: This is a technique that focuses on manual spinal adjustment. The technique does not make use of any medicines or surgical processes and works to adjust spinal bones. The method helps to restore the natural alignment of the spine thereby enabling the human body to maintain a healthy spine free from all types of problems and pains.
  • Massage therapy: Massage therapy works on different muscles and bones of the body. Massage therapy includes massaging the muscles of the body in different ways to bring about relaxation in the muscles. This in turn helps the muscles to stay aligned and also help to keep the bones of the body in correct position. Massage therapy also helps in bringing about relief from injuries and relieves pain in different muscles of the body. Massage must however be done by a specialist therapist for it work in the most effective manner. Massage done in the right manner goes a long way in restoring the natural posture and alignment of the spine.

Tips to Maintain a Good Posture

Posture refers to the position in which our bodies are held when we sit, stand or lie down. It is very important to maintain the correct posture of the body. A good posture means that the body parts are aligned in the right manner supported by the right amount of muscle tension against gravity. A good posture is essential for good health of the body as well as the spine.

A good posture is important as it:

  • Helps to keep the bones and joints in the correct alignment so that the muscles can be used properly.
  • Reduces stress on ligaments that hold the spinal joints thereby reducing chances of injuries to the spine.
  • Allows the muscles to work efficiently and in the right manner.
  • Helps to prevent muscular strains and also their improper use.

In general, we do not maintain a good posture when sitting, standing or lying down. Instead we like to maintain a posture that we feel comfortable in which is not the right thing to do as it leads to several health issues.

A poor posture can put excess strain on the muscles of the body thereby hampering their functioning. Poor posture may lead to injuries and pain in the muscles that can in turn lead to different health issues.

Tips to maintain a good posture when sitting:

  • When sitting, one must keep the feet on the floor or a footrest if the feet do not reach the floor.
  • When sitting, there must always be a gap between the seat and the back of the knees.
  • It is important to support the low and mid back when sitting and therefore the backrest of a seat must be adjusted accordingly.
  • When sitting, the shoulders must always be relaxed.
  • It is important to ensure that one does not sit in the same position for long time periods.

Tips to maintain a good posture when standing:

  • When standing the weight must be borne by the balls of the feet and not the toes.
  • When standing one must bend the knees a little and stand straight and tall with shoulders held backwards.
  • It is important to maintain the head level when standing. The ear lobes must be in-line with the shoulders when standing and the head must not be pushed forward, backward or on the sides.
  • When standing for long time periods, one must make sure to shift the weight from one leg to another or from the heels to the toes so that the muscles of the legs and back do not get strained.

Hunched Posture is more than Just a Cosmetic Deformity: Dr. Kado, MD Proves it’s Correlation to Cancer, Heart Attack and Stroke

By Dr. Oakley

Hunched posture is more than just a cosmetic deformity! It commonly starts with a forward head posture (see my blog on ‘text neck’) and then affects the upper back, as well as the lower back. Eventually it is a whole body collapse against the unrelenting gravitational forces.

The health effects of hunched posture, aka hyper-kyphosis, were assessed by

Dr. Deborah Kado, MD (UCLA) and colleagues and published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society in 2004. Kado examined 1353 persons aged 45-98 for hunched posture. These researchers measured hunched posture as the number of 1.7cm blocks necessary to place under a persons’ head to allow them to lay on their back with a neutral head position with upward gaze (without extending their head backwards). Follow-up exams were done on the survivors (267 persons died) an average of 4.3 years later.

Hazard rates statistical methods determined that for the whole group, hunched persons (requiring at least one block or more) had a 44% greater chance of dying than non-hunched persons. The more blocks that were necessary to use showed a greater chance of dying (1.25x risk for one block, 1.56x risk for two blocks, 1.50x risk for three blocks) as compared to having good posture. [Although there appears to be a slight better chance of living having 3 or more blocks than requiring only 2, the difference is small, albeit it may show that some individuals can adapt to worsening posture better than others – then again, they were still 50% more likely to die!]

The authors also looked at the cause of death – they already proved poorer postured people die earlier, but how? As it turns out they found that if you have hunched posture, you have a 2.38x greater chance of dying from atherosclerosis, a 1.84x greater chance of dying from cancer, a 2.44x greater chance of dying from pulmonary causes, and a 1.37x greater chance of dying from any other disease. Yes, hyper-kyphosis or simply, hunched posture predisposes you to early demise from a variety of diseases including cancer!

Risk & Cause of Death from Hunched Position


Variety of causes




Atherosclerosis (heart attack/stroke)


Pulmonary causes

Obviously this may be new information for you. In fact, chances are your medical doctor will not have heard of this information either – when’s the last time they checked your posture?! This is one of the reasons why you need to take the responsibility of health into your own hands and educate yourself on what is actually important to achieve and maintain your health. Posture is certainly a central pillar to your health! (See my book: Shotgun to Health).

‘Text Neck’ – Are You Inadvertently Giving Yourself Poor Health?

By Dr. Oakley

‘Text neck’ is a modern term describing the forward head and neck positions adopted while using your smartphone. According to Dr. Hansraj,1 chief of spine surgery at New York Spine Surgery and Rehabilitation Medicine, it is an epidemic. As he states in an interview in The Washington Post, “Just look around you, everyone has their heads down.”2

According to Dr. Hansraj, an average head weighs about 12 pounds. The more forward your head angle becomes, the greater ‘effective weight’ of your head. At a 60° angle, the head feels like it weighs 60 pounds (as opposed to 12lbs)!1 This adds an extraordinary amount of stress to the structures of the neck including the discs, muscles and ligaments, as well as the bones and nerves.

Poor posture is truly an under-diagnosed modern epidemic. Postural alterations are known to be associated with a plethora of human afflictions from general pain syndromes,3-11 to problems with specific joints such as the hip12,13 and the knee,14 to problems with specific spinal regions such as the flat-back syndrome,15 and cervical kyphosis,11 to local organ ailments such as uterine prolapse,16,17 gastric herniation,18 and respiratory function,19-21 to thinking,19,22 and even to morbidity and mortality.23-27

An ideal neck in neutral posture should have a backward curve, or ‘C’ shape, as in a piece of a circle.28,29 The more often one bends their head forward, the greater the chance of loosing the normal or ideal ‘C’ shape alignment. This leads to a straightening of the neck curve, which predisposes you to neck pain and headaches, as well as numbness and tingling in the arms and hands as in carpal tunnel syndrome.28,29

Even worse, the forward leaning of head posture leads to a worsening of your whole spine. Those older people with excessive forward hunchback postures (termed hyper-kyphosis) have had their bad postures start somewhere – and it typically starts with only a forward head position. As your posture can continue to lean and hunch forward as the years go by, a simultaneous deterioration of your health occurs.

So to avoid and prevent the deterioration of your health by poor postures, it is of prime importance to not only be aware of what postures you adopt throughout the day (including while using your smartphone), but also to get a spine and posture assessment to see where your spine and posture currently is as compared to where it should be.

Innovative Spine & Wellness uses state-of-the-art ‘BioPhysics’ techniques ( to correct faulty posture. By using corrective exercises and corrective stretching procedures, we can get great improvements in posture and therefore, improve your health!
