HOW POOR POSTURE & SLOUGHING ARE AFFECTING YOUR HEALTH Slouching is something our parents and teachers warn us against from a very young age. It’s sloppy, makes us look heavier and shorter, and hurts our backs. But did you know that slouching affects a lot more than your back and appearance? If you’re a chronic sloucher, read on to find out how your poor posture is affecting your overall health. Back, Neck, and Shoulder Pain Let’s get the most obvious side effects out of the way first. When you slouch, your balance is not properly aligned and the joints and muscles in your back don’t evenly share the weight, which can lead to tension and pain in your lower back, upper back, and shoulders. When you notice the pain, you might try to overcorrect your slouch, which could make you exaggerate by pulling your shoulders too far back. Overcorrecting can be just as painful on your spine and shoulders. To learn proper posture, ask your physiotherapist to help you. Digestive Issues Imagine trying to use a garden hose that hasn’t been properly rolled up and put away and is tangled and kinked as a result. Water might come out in tiny drops or not at all. Your intestines work the same way. By slouching, your intestines fold together and significantly reduce your digestive capabilities. The resulting feeling of being backed up can make some of us slouch in order to hide our bloated stomachs, which turns into a vicious cycle. Fix your posture by engaging in core-strengthening exercises that tend to stretch out your internal organs, such as yoga or pilates. You might be surprised how quickly things get moving. Head and Jaw Pain When you slouch, your neck and head tend to lean forward, which makes you automatically clench your jaw. Eventually, all that tension will give you a major headache, and it could lead to more serious issues, such as wearing down your jaw joint. To prevent headaches and jaw pain, it’s important to be aware of your clenching and to lean your head back. Having proper posture means your neck and head are not leaning too far back or too far forward. Overcorrecting can be just as detrimental, so it’s important to sit and stand straight. Affected Lung Function This is perhaps the most serious side effect of slouching. Not only are our digestive organs affected by bad posture, but our lungs can’t function properly in this position. When our lungs aren’t working properly, our tissues and other organs aren’t getting the oxygen they need, which can lead to scary problems, such as difficulty breathing and reduced brain and heart function. If you realize that you’re consistently confused and have difficulty concentrating, check your posture. Easy Tips To Avoid Slouching Sit all the way back on your chair. If your feet can’t reach the floor, place a small foot stool under them. This also relieves pressure on your lower spine. Think tall. It might sound funny, but just being aware of how you stand will automatically make you stand up taller. Wear comfortable shoes. If you’re a sloucher, high heels might be the culprit. Practice core-strengthening and flexibility exercises. Yoga, Pilates, aerobics, and swimming will all help you strengthen your back and stomach muscles. A stronger core will allow you to better support your weight. Come to Allocare Physiotherapy Get professional assistance with your bad posture or slouch at Allocare Physiotherapy.

Disc Bulge or Herniation A disc bulge happens when the disc’s jellylike center is squeezed into cracks and bulges out the outer covering of the disc. As it bulges out it can squeeze on nerves that travel down to the legs or arms and can cause pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling. If the disc bulge does not press on the nerve it can cause a backache or no pain at all. A disc bulge in the lower back can cause pain and numbness in the buttock and down the leg. This is called sciatica. The disc bulge may be caused by wear and tear to the disc or by injury to the spine. Bad posture can also lead to a disc bulge over time. Back pain can be very debilitating, that is why it is very important to start treatments as soon as possible. Can Physiotherapy Help? Physiotherapists at Pro Care Physiotherapy & Athletes’ Injury Center can help with all back and neck conditions after performing a thorough assessment. The treatment may include: Manual therapy to improve movement in your back and/or neck Ultrasound, electrotherapy and/or acupuncture to relieve pain, swelling and promote tissue healing Mechanical traction (spinal decompression) to help relief pressure off a nerve An exercise program including strengthening and stretching to strengthen your core, back, neck, and to progressively return you to your daily and sporting activities Massage to promote soft tissue healing and break up of scar tissue Advice on posture and activities to avoid further irritation or injury to your back and/or neck : Physiotherapy Hyderabad

The Key to Aging Well May Be a Walk in the Park One undeniable fact that affects each and every person alive today is that they’re aging. No one can stop the clock. What people do have a semblance of control over is how well they age. An in-depth study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that physical activity slows down and, in some cases, prevents the development of physical disabilities as people age. Walking is one of the physical activities that’s a good fit for those who are older. Why walking? Most older adults desire to hold onto their independence as long as they can. Regular exercise is one way to extend their autonomy for as long as possible. Walking is ideal because it’s inexpensive, simple, low-impact and almost everyone can do it. But that’s not all. There is a whole host of other reasons for seniors to lace up their walking shoes, including: ● A reduced risk of premature death. ● A lowered risk of dying from heart disease. ● A decreased risk of colon cancer. ● A lowered risk of developing high blood pressure, as well as reducing it in those who already have it. ● A lowered risk of diabetes ● A decreased risk of hypertension. ● Controlling weight. ● Increasing muscle strength, flexibility, and balance. Because regular exercise is linked to a healthy self-worth, making walking a part of the daily routine is also a great mental boost, an important factor due to the fact that many older people are prone to depression. An ounce of prevention As previously mentioned, walking can prevent some of the ailments that are common among the aging. Much of the loss of strength and endurance that they experience is actually due to inactivity and an increasingly sedentary lifestyle. Walking regularly increases mobility and keeps the body flexible. One of the deciding factors in determining if a person can still live on their own is their ability to walk and to care for themselves. Better flexibility leads to better balance, which is crucial for older people. Poor balance quite commonly leads to falls. A fall can be difficult to recover from and may require lengthy hospital stays and time spent in rehab in order to recover fully. A full recovery is much more likely if a person has maintained a good level of physical fitness and activity. It’s not too late Some older adults may assume that being past their “prime” means it’s too late to make improvements in their health. The truth is, it’s never too late! The positive effects, mental and physical, are worth the effort. While it’s important to check in with a physician and to start slow, the benefits are still too good to pass up! Professionals recommend beginning with 10 minutes a day and slowly working up to 150 minutes per week of walking or other low-impact exercises. Most people desire to live on their own and care for themselves as long as they possibly can. The idea of being immobile and having to depend on others for basic care can be frightening and disheartening. Taking part in a physical activity, such as walking, can give a person more years of autonomy than they would have had if they lived a largely sedentary life. : Physiotherapy Hyderabad
