Posture and back pain
Posture and back pain

On the top there is head, heavy on your mind, on shoulders lies the burden of responsibility and in our front there is a belly, filled with all the good food. All of that is a burden for the spine. And beside that it also has to handle with 80.000 hours of sitting in our life where loosen muscles doesn’t do any good.

How to recognize bad poise?

Sloppy, flabby poise or its contrast, military poise, can both damage your spine. Many people think this kind of poise is correct and suitable, but in both cases they are wrong. Both poises causes unnatural burden of back muscles which can’t completely relax, therefore they become stiff and painful. There is also a lot of burden on ties what would eventually impact on back joints.

  • Flabby poise: head and belly are pushed forward, shoulders are loosen and bent.
  • Military poise: head is raised, chin is pushed forward. Shoulders are rigid set upright. Belly is flat, bottom is pushed outwards.

Correct poise

There is an equally distributed pressure on joints and back at correct poise. Muscles need to be relaxed or in just right tension to maintain body poise. Spine has to be in its natural curve – not to straight not to bend.

  • Crown of the head should be the highest point of the body, chin should not be pushed downwards neither outwards.
  • Look up straight.
  • Neck should be straight and stretch out, do not lean on any side.
  • Shoulders are horizontal and relaxed, slightly pushed back and down.
  • Back should be set up straight from back and behind and has to maintain its natural S line.
  • Hips have to be in the same height.
  • Belly is pulled inside and bottom is squeezed. That’s how the back is supported and excessive bending in lower back is prevented.
  • Kneepans are standing forward, knees are not pushed back.
  • Toes are standing forward, foot arc has to be seen on the inner side of the foot.

Consequences of bad, incorrect poise are not seen over the night. Therefore you also need certain time and lots of patient with practice if you want to fix it.
