Posture is the window to the spine!  There is so much we can tell about your spine, movement, position habits, and more based on your posture.  And posture is more than just about sitting up straight.  It is important to make sure that the joints of your spine and pelvis are not being improperly loaded, which can lead to early arthritis, pain, and changes in your posture that can effect movement.  

But posture can also effect the amount of oxygenation of your body.  When you are slouched over, there is more pressure placed on your abdomen, which can limit the amount that your diaphragm can expand when taking a breath, ultimately limiting the amount of oxygen that your body can bring in.  Some times it can be minuscule, but some times this can really take its toll over time on your health.  

Below is an article that talks more about why posture is so important, as well as some stretches that you can do to help maintain good posture.
