Fitness Tip: Check your posture

Almost everyone needs a reminder about the importance of good posture. Poor postural awareness is one of the top reasons patients with non-traumatic muscle and joint pain require physical therapy. Many people think of posture as being static, or not moving, when posture really involves how we are carrying ourselves throughout the day. It is important to remember a couple keys to maintaining good posture: stay tall and keep your shoulder blades back. It will put your body in a better position and decrease your risk for posture-related pain symptoms.
