How to improve your posture
The first step to better posture can be as simple as recognizing the environment you’re in, says Lishchyna. “When people come into my clinic, they are already at the pain stage,” she says. “We want them to recognize the signs before the pain happens.”
So what can you do to improve your posture and alleviate pain? “First, be aware of your posture,” she says. “If you’re sitting at a computer, ask yourself: Are your feet touching the ground? Are your arms at 90-degrees? Be aware of your environment.” If you find that you experience pain throughout the day from sitting, try taking frequent breaks, or doing some stretches. If you continue to experience back pain, Lishchyna recommends that you seek professional treatment.
