Bad Posture Habits to be Aware Of

You may have been told by a concerned friend or family member to stand up straight in order for you to recognize your poor posture. Kyphosis, or the rounding of the upper back, is a common sign of bad posture. Recent studies have shown that having poor posture can negatively affect both your physical and mental health. Aside from prolonged hunching, there are other posture habits or “alignments” that can go unnoticed.

These alignments are typically much less recognizable than slouching or hunching. Nevertheless, these habits can be just as harmful on your body as some muscle groups can be more overworked than others. One of the most common results of poor posture going unnoticed is persistent low back pain. If you are looking to improve your posture, pigeon toes, anterior pelvic tilt, and forward head are all subtle habits to be aware of.
