Living with …… Osteopenia – are you sitting comfortably?

Posture is the position in which we hold our body upright against gravity while standing or sitting down. But if like me you sometimes stand or sit incorrectly the result is a headache or back pain! Ouch.  

Daily Lyprinol can help ease the discomfort, but we also need to retrain our bodies to sit and to stand correctly. Our bodies were designed to move with rhythm and ease but far too many of us sit or stand for hours working at screens or equipment at the wrong height.

Our daily routine should be a mixture of sitting, standing and moving. However, the pace of modern life makes this difficult and consequently we spend our time hunched up in front of a screen or driving long distances. Pain and discomfort will result from adopting these uncomfortable postures for long periods, so get up and move around every 30 minutes when possible.  With correct posture and body in good alignment we can alleviate headaches, back and neck pain, and fatigue.  

Good posture involves training our bodies to stand, walk, sit and lie in positions where less strain is placed on supporting muscles and ligaments.  Strength and flexibility exercises can correct muscle imbalances, improve body awareness, make our backs strong and resilient and alleviate muscle tension.  Standing (or sitting) tall will boost your bearing and self-confidence and help you look and feel younger!
