Why Posture Matters?

Good posture isn't just about feeling more confident, it has a notable effect on your health.

With most of us spending more time at home now more than ever, whether this is working at your desk all day or spending time looking down at your phone. It's very easy to fall into the habit of limiting your movements throughout the day, especially with demands of your work and life commitments. The longer you spend time performing these activities with minimal movement, the more likely are you to develop bad posture habits.

Over time, these posture mistakes can result in poor form, muscle tension and back pain. It is important to recognise such issues early on, and address these posture concerns to ensure your spine is healthy in the long run.
