If you’re like most of us, you’ve had someone or other get after you about practicing correct posture at some point in your lifetime. Those warnings probably feel on deaf ears. It’s only now that you’re older and everyday aches and pains seemed to be magnified exponentially that you begin to realize the importance of posture-correcting furniture like a Multi-Table Manual Height Adjustable Standing Desk.
The chronic pain that can come from poor posture often isn’t due to poor habits you developed in your youth. Few realize this, but as adults, we place ourselves in position to develop poor posture with the home and office furniture that we use every day. Rarely are these items adjusted to allow for correct posture because most of us probably don’t have a true appreciation for just how much our posture can affect our overall health.
The human body is truly a remarkable machine. Few other man-made structures can even begin to approximate its functional durability. Yet like any structure, undue stress at certain points can cause repaid join deterioration. Most associate that deterioration with chronic back and neck pain, and for good reason: according to the New England Journal of Medicine, over 31 million Americans have experienced some form of lower back pain during their lives. This pain is often attributed to sore muscles along your neck and down your lower back that have to work that much harder to stabilize themselves when you slouch. Yet back pain isn’t the only problem caused by poor posture:
- Incorrect spinal curvature: Each of us already have four natural curves in our spine that create its traditional “S” shape. Over time, poor posture can cause those curves to change position, affecting your ability to absorb shock as well as to balance.
- Vertebral subluxations: Should the curvature of your spine change, individual vertebrae can become misaligned, causing stress and irritation to your spinal nerves.
- Poor blood flow: As the shape of your spine changes and subluxations occur, blood vessels around the spine can become constricted, slowing the flow of oxygen and other nutrients to your muscles. This decreased flow can also increase your risk of developing a blood clot or deep vein thrombosis.
