Do you often find yourself slouching over your computer keyboard or phone? If so, you’re not alone. Many people suffer from bad posture, which can lead to several health problems. But the good news is that there are exercises that can help improve your posture! 

In this blog post, we will discuss five exercises that can help you stand up straighter and feel better overall. So, let’s get started!

  1. The first exercise is called the “pelvic tilt.” To do this exercise, stand with your feet hip-width apart and place your hands on your hips. Then, tilt your pelvis forward so that your lower back rounds slightly. Hold this position for five seconds and then return to the starting position. Repeat this exercise ten times.
  2. The second exercise is called the “cat-cow stretch.” To do this stretch, start on your hands and knees with your spine in a neutral position. Then, arch your back like a cat and hold for five seconds. Return to the starting position and then round your back like a cow, holding for five seconds. Repeat this stretch ten times.
  3. The third exercise is called the “plank.” To do a plank, start on your hands and knees with your palms flat on the ground and your shoulders over your wrists. Then, extend your legs back one at a time to come into a plank position with your body in a straight line from your head to your heels. Hold this position for 30 seconds and then return to the starting position. Repeat this exercise three times.
  4. The fourth exercise is called the “side plank.” To do a side plank, start in the same position as the plank exercise, but prop yourself up on one elbow instead of both hands. Then, raise your hips so that your body is in a straight line from your head to your feet. Hold this position for 30 seconds and then repeat on the other side.
  5. The fifth and final exercise is called the “bird dog.” To do this exercise, start on your hands and knees with your palms flat on the ground and your shoulders over your wrists. Then, extend your right leg backward and your left arm forward, keeping your hips level. Hold this position for five seconds and then return to the starting position. Repeat on the other side.

Do these exercises three times per week to see a noticeable difference in your posture! And remember, always consult with a doctor, physical therapist, or chiropractor before starting. If you want more information about how we can help you with your condition, please contact our practice today.
