It’s not the nagging mother of yesteryear bemoaning good posture – it’s us – Fitterfirst. This time it’s not about preventing you from looking like a schlubb, it’s about protecting your spine. We believe proactive health changes are much better than reactive ones, and we like to use the analogy of flossing to describe it. It’s something that is not your number one priority, but if you stop doing it, there will be long lasting effects on your health and well-being. The same goes for posture. So why don’t we just fix it?
Correcting posture is one proactive pursuit that often eludes the majority of people. For those of us who are hunched over computers all day, commuting a half hour or more to work or carrying the kids around, posture is a hidden but alarming health issue that will gradually get worse over time. Because it is a gradual degradation of our spine it’s easy to ignore, because we aren’t experiencing the pain instantly…yet.
