Our bodies are designed to move. The skeletal structure and muscular support of the body work best and contribute to healthy posture when it’s challenged with regular physical activity. However, many of us don’t have the luxury of incorporating a full body exercise program into our daily lives. So when our bodies remain in the same position for a long period of time, or make repetitive or unnatural movements, pain and injury can occur.

 

We love what we do here at Posture Depot. We’re passionate about Posture. We know using properly designed ergonomic products, inside and outside the home, can be the key to preventing physical stress on the body - and therefore preventing pain and injury. We want you to be confident that our products will help improve your chances of avoiding short and long term health problems in your daily life.

 

So let’s talk posture. It’s more important that you may think. Good posture means your bones are properly aligned and your muscles, joints and ligaments can work as nature intended. It means your vital organs are in the right position and can function at peak efficiency. Good posture helps contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system.

 

Without good posture, your overall health is compromised. The long-term effects of poor posture can affect bodily functions including digestion, elimination, breathing, and circulation. Poor posture and repetitive motion stresses structures such as muscles, joints and ligaments leading to injury. Symptoms of poor posture include pain, drowsiness, and low productivity.

 

Poor posture doesn’t discriminate. Even for younger people, the positions you use when working, sleeping, and relaxing will have big effect on your body. Did you know that just fifteen minutes of reading or typing when using the wrong posture will stress and exhaust the muscles of your neck, shoulders and upper back? How many times have you awakened to a stiff neck due to non-supportive pillow?

 

Posture Depot provides healthy ergonomic solutions for every active lifestyle - whether you work at home, or in a bigger office setting, while sleeping and even when you travel. We stay on top of ergonomic research and design and bring you the products that will improve your well-being.
