How many times have you finished a long day of work with grueling back-pain from poor posture?
Well, you’re not alone.
80% of us will experience back pain at some point in our lives, and the number one reason for that is poor posture, according to the American Chiropractic Association. The truth is, our bodies were not designed to sit all day and slouch over our computers and smart-phones.
In a sedentary instant, slouching became an accepted epidemic. But it shouldn’t be.
We shouldn’t have to pick between sitting, and sitting right. We can combine the two. Posture is everywhere, and for good reason. Having good posture has many benefits including
- Less body aches and back pain
- Feel and look good
- Build a stronger core
- Breathe better
- Reduce stress
- Quality of life improves
Well, companies like UPRIGHT are setting out to make the world a straighter, taller place. With advances in technology, in 2016 we will see more people focusing on their posture.
