Have you become a sloucher?
Do you walk by a reflection and notice you’re starting to look like your grandmother? Your head feels like it weights a million pounds, and the way you are standing makes you feel like a hunchback? You’ve tried standing straight but it isn’t working and you aren’t sure what to do.

Good posture is important whether you’re 28 or 68 … because your posture affects the way you look, feel and age.
When we stand and sit correctly we feel lighter and less tense … like a Jenga game that’s perfectly balanced.
Countless hours in front of a computer, driving, and all the time we spend on our phones cause us to hunch forward. When we hold ourselves in a strained position for prolonged periods, the spine and surrounding muscles have to work hard to hold up your head. Eventually you’ll notice a “hump” developing
Will the hump ever go away?
Likely, yes. The hump is made up of of muscle and fatty tissue, which usually disappears when your posture is improved. However, if left long enough the bones in the area begin to change and the hump becomes permanent.
Slouching makes everyone look 10 lbs heavier and 10 years older.
Poor posture is also a direct cause of:
- Unhealthy breathing patterns
- Poor flexibility
- Incresed anxiety
- Neck and shoulder tension
- Frozen Shoulder
- TMJ issues
- Low back pain
- Poor digestion, constipation and a slower metabolism
