How Massage Can Help Improve Posture

Sitting and standing for prolonged periods of time can take a toll on your body. Slouching over a computer day after day is bound to build tension in your neck, shoulders and back. Over time, slouching can become a bad habit that leads to poor posture even when you’re standing and walking. Poor posture can detract from your overall appearance and cause a number of health problems over the years. If you suffer from poor posture, discover how massage therapy can eliminate postural problems and improve your quality of life. 

Dangers of Poor Posture

Keep in mind that soft tissues in your body are inter-connected and affect one another. Tight muscles in your back, for example, could cause your body to twist slightly to adjust for discomfort and pain. Over time, slight adjustments in your posture could result in misalignment of your neck and spine. 

Left uncorrected, poor posture can change your natural spinal curve, causing pain and discomfort in your neck, shoulders and back. Many people suffer from chronic back pain due to long term postural problems. Chronic back pain will make it difficult for you to partake of activities you enjoy most. By slouching all day over a computer, you can also put undue pressure on your digestive organs, hindering them from functioning as they should. 

How Can Massage Improve Posture?

Massage therapy works to alleviate muscle tension and pressure to eliminate back pain and discomfort. As your muscles relax, you gain greater flexibility in your neck, shoulders and back, allowing you to sit and stand taller as well as move about more freely, without fear of aches and pains.

Regular massage can help eliminate muscle soreness and pain, alleviate pressure in your spinal column and restore your body’s natural alignment so you look and feel healthy again. Massage therapy lets you say goodbye to poor posture and its many health problems and hello to a more active, pain-free lifestyle.
