Beschreibung

Importance of good posture:
Good posture allows the best movement of force through the body so the musculoskeletal system can function properly and protect against injury and deterioration.
If the spine is not held upright, the internal organs are crowded into less space which can reduce their effectiveness.
Good posture is the proper alignment of body parts which is supported by the right amount of muscle tension against gravity
A good posture allows you to breathe better, and as a result decreases fatigue and minimizes other side-effects linked with bad posture.
Correct posture refers to the way that you hold the position and body.
The correct posture keeps the muscles, ligaments, bones and internal organs in their natural position.
A good posture is also important to bones of the neck shoulder and back.
There is the decrease in wear and tear of joints, relief of stress, and improvement of health and enhancement of the appearance.
Good posture can also improve self-esteem.
People who adopt good posture not only show greater confidence but have a stronger belief in their own abilities than those with poor posture.
A good posture is also essential for breathing and spine strength.

Poor Posture
A poor posture on the other hand is the type of posture that results from certain muscles tightening up or shortening while others lengthen and become weak.
This often happens as a result of one's daily activities.
Posture refers mainly to the alignment of joints, and is normally related with the natural curves of the spine and the position of the head and pelvis.
When a person thinks of posture, that person thinks of models that have to train to walk with good posture by learning to walk confidently with a book placed on their head.
Poor posture can result in back and shoulder pain to frequent headaches and Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) dysfunction.
Poor posture can have a profound effect on the risk of developing lower back pain, headaches and other related discomforts.
Poor posture can also cause physical pain and emotional trauma.
By knowing the causes of bad posture, it is hoped that poor posture can be corrected.
A number of factors can affect the posture

Causes
1. Fatigue
Most children have told by their parents from birth to learn to stand up straight in order to have good posture.
It will become harder to keep the back straight and tall as the best way to have good posture, the longer you try to hold the position.
The muscles supporting the back will sooner or later become tired and result in the spine and shoulders sinking lower and worsening the posture.
It is important to ensure that you do not stay in one position too long to counteract this.

2. Foot Placement
Foot placement is important to ensure good posture.
It will not matter how straight you keep the spine if the foot placement is not in a natural, comfortable position.
The feet typically roll inward, resulting in the knees to bend and the back to slouch.
Bad posture usually occurs as a result of this foot placement.

3. Shoulder Slump
Slumped shoulders can result in many postural problems starting with the upper portion of the spine.
Head forward, rounded shoulders, sunken chest and kyphosis, an excessive curvature of the upper spine, occur as a result of slumped shoulders.
Working on a computer gives you a natural tendency to push the head forward, hunching the shoulders and causing poor alignment of the joints in the neck and upper body.

Introduction

I have been writing medical articles for my blog http://kennethkee.blogspot.com (A Simple Guide to Medical Disorder) for the benefit of my patients since 2007.

My purpose in writing these simple guides was for the health education of my patients.

Health Education was also my dissertation for my Ph.D (Healthcare Administration).

I then wrote an autobiolographical account of his journey as a medical student to family doctor on his other blog http://afamilydoctor stale.blogspot.com.

This autobiolographical account A Family Doctor ’s Tale was combined with my early A Simple Guide to Medical Disorders into a new Wordpress Blog A Family Doctor ’s Tale on http://kenkee481.wordpress.com.

From which many free articles from the blog was taken and put together into 800 eBooks.

Some people have complained that the simple guides are too simple.

For their information they are made simple in order to educate the patients.

The later books go into more details of medical disorders.

The first chapter is always from my earlier blogs which unfortunately tends to have typos and spelling mistakes.

Since 2013, I have tried to improve my spelling and writing.

As I tried to bring the patient the latest information about a disorder or illness by reading the latest journals both online and offline, I find that I am learning more and improving on my own medical knowledge in diagnosis and treatment for my patients.

Just by writing all these simple guides I find that I have learned a lot from your reviews (good or bad), criticism and advice.

I am sorry for the repetitions in these simple guides as the second chapters onwards have new information as compared to my first chapter taken from my blog.

I also find repetition definitely help me and maybe some readers to remember the facts in the books more easily.

I apologize if these repetitions are irritating to some readers.

Chapter 1

Poor Posture

What is the Posture?

The Posture is the position in which a person holds his or her body while standing, sitting, driving a car or lying down.

Good posture is important to the health.

People with good posture typically have more confidence and physical stability to go about their daily work.

Importance of good posture:

Good posture allows the best movement of force through the body so the musculoskeletal system can function properly and protect against injury and deterioration.

If the spine is not held upright, the internal organs are crowded into less space which can reduce their effectiveness.

Good posture is the proper alignment of body parts which is supported by the right amount of muscle tension against gravity

A good posture allows you to breathe better, and as a result decreases fatigue and minimizes other side-effects linked with bad posture.

Correct posture refers to the way that you hold the position and body.

The correct posture keeps the muscles, ligaments, bones and internal organs in their natural position.

A good posture is also important to bones of the neck shoulder and back.

There is the decrease in wear and tear of joints, relief of stress, and improvement of health and enhancement of the appearance.

Good posture can also improve self-esteem.

People who adopt good posture not only show greater confidence but have a stronger belief in their own abilities than those with poor posture.

A good posture is also essential for breathing and spine strength.

Poor Posture

A poor posture on the other hand is the type of posture that results from certain muscles tightening up or shortening while others lengthen and become weak.

This often happens as a result of one's daily activities.

Posture refers mainly to the alignment of joints, and is normally related with the natural curves of the spine and the position of the head and pelvis.

When a person thinks of posture, that person thinks of models that have to train to walk with good posture by learning to walk confidently with a book placed on their head.

Poor posture can result in back and shoulder pain to frequent headaches and Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) dysfunction.

Poor posture can have a profound effect on the risk of developing lower back pain, headaches and other related discomforts.

Poor posture can also cause physical pain and emotional trauma.

By knowing the causes of bad posture, it is hoped that poor posture can be corrected.

A number of factors can affect the posture

Causes

1. Fatigue

Most children have told by their parents from birth to learn to stand up straight in order to have good posture.

It will become harder to keep the back straight and tall as the best way to have good posture, the longer you try to hold the position.

The muscles supporting the back will sooner or later become tired and result in the spine and shoulders sinking lower and worsening the posture.

Foot placement is important to ensure good posture.

It will not matter how straight you keep the spine if the foot placement is not in a natural, comfortable position.

The feet typically roll inward, resulting in the knees to bend and the back to slouch.

Bad posture usually occurs as a result of this foot placement.

The entire body will be tired if the feet are kept in this position which will cause further bad posture.

You should ensure that you keep the feet placed upright and wear comfortable and supportive shoes to help with their placement.

Poor posture will in time affects the joints.

Inheritance of the tendency to carry the body out of alignment may occur if other family members have poor posture.

Tiredness or fatigue will cause poor posture; also poor sleeping positions will lead to misalignment of the spine.

The body's posture is often thrown out of alignment by the wearing of high-heeled shoes and ill-fitting shoes that put pressure on the joints in the spine, legs and feet.

3. Shoulder Slump

Slumped shoulders can result in many postural problems starting with the upper portion of the spine.

Head forward, rounded shoulders, sunken chest and kyphosis, an excessive curvature of the upper spine, occur as a result of slumped shoulders.
