Q. Is "correct" posture really that important to the health of my spine?
A. Using healthy posture is like holding a defense shield against aches and pains in your spine. Pain and injury CAN be prevented. When your joints are positioned in their safe — or neutral — postures, your body works like an elegant machine. It works safely and even more productively. When unbalanced postures are used, problems are more likely to happen. Prevention of pain and injury has a lot to do with keeping a balanced position in your spine and extremities.
