What Is Posture Pain?

Pain From Bad Posture!

This guide to Bad Posture Pain is unlike the other “Pain Explained” articles in our site. Most are covering the actual pain you are suffering, but we believe that bad posture is so important, as a cause of other painful conditions, it needs an entire explanation of its own.

This is aimed at people with poor posture caused by long periods sitting at their desktop computer screens, laptop, tablets and mobile phones, contributing to the other conditions we cover:

There are a great many other benefits from having good posture:

  • You look better
  • Your bio-mechanics work better
  • You can breathe properly

Why Good Posture Matters

The buzz online these days is that sitting is the new smoking. Research suggests sitting for most of your day has the same detrimental effect as smoking, and increases your risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Unfortunately, that’s relevant for almost all of us!

More people are sitting for longer periods of time than ever before, and our health is really suffering the negative consequences.

To avoid the effects of a lifetime of sitting, you must make a real effort to continually take care of your own posture, with a daily exercise routine built on our Pain Kit methodology:

Do Most People Have Bad Posture?

There is no one optimal posture, and no one optimal solution to bad posture. In a lot of cases, bad posture does not cause pain on it’s own, because everyone’s posture is unique. Differences in posture are a fact of life.

Our Posture can often be influenced by our moods or even our beliefs. Emotions, thoughts  and body image perception can influence posture – particularly in young people! Some postures are a protective strategy and may reflect concerns about body shyness. Understanding these mechanisms can be useful, so sometimes an emotional wellbeing and/or holistic strategy can work wonders on posture!
