Bad Posture and Repeated Stress Injuries

Bad posture can be the reason for a lot of acute pain in the body. Many of us nowadays work office jobs where we're expected to sit at a desk for 8+ hours daily. With time, if our posture is incorrect, this can cause a lot of pain and discomfort. A bad posture can lead to chronic pain in the back, the forearms and shoulders, and the neck. Extended use of screens from too close can also lead to headaches. We need to ensure that we create a comfortable environment at work, as this not only helps us avoid discomfort and injury but also lets us work efficiently in the long run. Identify activities through your day that cause you discomfort. It could be at the office, driving your car, during sleep, or working out. Once you've pinpointed the reasons for your pain, look into how you can ensure better posture while participating in these activities. Some examples of changes one might need to make are- investing in better furniture at home to ensure that it works well with your body type and height, not lifting heavier weights at the gym until you're confident about your form and posture; getting a bed mattress that is more comfortable and can help you achieve better sleep posture. All these changes will go a long way in helping you stay fit and happy. Besides just helping you avoid chronic pain, you will be a lot less likely to get injured. Repeated stress in some areas of the body can cause longterm damage, leading to pain and weakness. This weakness can lead to an increased chance of injury. It is important to maintain a good posture to avoid any permanent damage. Maintaining good posture can help relieve a lot of physical stress in the body, enabling us to do more - happily and effectively.
