The Effects of Poor Posture – and How to Fix It

The Effects of Poor Posture – and How to Fix It

December 31 2021
If you’ve never paid much attention to your posture, you’re not alone. Most people don’t think about how slouching while sitting and standing affects their health. However, there are several ways that poor posture can be detrimental to your health, and the experts at Helen’s Haven can help restore your good posture – and your wellbeing.

Here are just some of the effects of poor posture that a posture alignment treatment can help reduce or alleviate:


  • Headaches. The strain from hunched shoulders also puts a strain on your neck, which can then manifest itself in a headache. If you have regular headaches but are not sure of their cause, think about whether posture could be the culprit.


  • Sleep trouble. Poor back alignment can mean that your muscles are under too much tension to relax, affecting your ability to have a restful night’s sleep.


  • Back pain. Many times, it’s a poor posture that leads to back pain. Positioning your body incorrectly puts excess strain on your back, especially your lower back, causing pain or contributing to other causes of back pain. 


  • Digestive problems. Excess pressure on your organs can be caused by incorrect posture. This is especially problematic when your stomach and intestines are compressed, affecting digestion.

You can improve your posture through regular professional treatments that help align your spine and back muscles. This is achieved through a unique system of muscle relaxation performed by a trained and experienced therapist. Easing those tight muscles helps your body fall naturally into the correct posture for more balanced health.

At Helen’s Haven, our Posture Alignment treatments are performed by Linda Manning, who is also an instructor for this unique back-balancing technique. You can have posture alignment treatments alone or in conjunction with one of our relaxing and therapeutic 60- or 90-minute massage therapy treatments.
