Posture

POSTURE  is  POSITIVELY IMPORTANT

 

1.     MUSCLES CANNOT PUSH AGAINST BONE

2.     MUSCLES ONLY PULL ON BONE

·       WHEN MUSCLE IS USED TO PULL ON A BONE THAT MUSCLE GETS SLIGHTLY SHORTER , EACH TIME THAT MUSCLE PULLS ON THAT BONE THE MUSCLE GETS PROGRESSIVELY MORE SHORTER , UNTIL AFTER SOME YEARS THE MUSCLE GETS SO SHORT THAT IT CONTINUOUSLY PULLS ON THE BONE AND PULLS THE BONE OUT OF CORRECT SKELETAL ALIGNMENT

·       TO PREVENT SHORT ( TIGHT ) MUSCLES FROM CAUSING SKELETAL MISALIGNMENT THEN AT THE END OF EACH DAY , BEFORE GOING TO BED , STRETCH THE LARGE MUSCLES OF THE BODY.  ( REFERENCE Page  Stretches )

ALSO INCLUDE DAILY FLEXIBILITY AND RANGE OF MOTION MOVEMENTS WITH YOUR UPVC. PIPE  ( REFERENCE Page  Stretches  )

 

LEG MUSCLES SHORTEN WHEN YOU ARE SEATED

THE LARGE MUSCLES AT THE FRONT AND BACK OF THE UPPER LEG SHORTEN WHEN YOU ARE SEATED, THIS SHORTENING IS INCREASED IF FEET ARE UNDER THE CHAIR , AND LESSENED IF THE FEET ARE IN FRONT OF THE KNEES SO KEEP THE FEET WELL IN FRONT OF THE KNEES WHEN SEATED  (  APPLY THE LEG STRETCHES AT THE END OF THE DAY , PREVENTING TIGHT MUSCLES AT NIGHT MAY ALSO ALLOW YOU SLEEP BETTER WITH RELAXED AND UNTENSED LEGS MUSCLES , BEING TIRED CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT CONCENTRATION NEEDED TO AVOID / OFFSET / CONTROL A FALL)

 

            POSTURE ENHANCING ERGONOMICS PAD

I USE MY ERGONOMICS PAD TO REST THE P.C.  KEYBOARD ON, THIS PREVENTS EXCESSIVE LEANING FORWARD TO USE THE KEYBOARD THEREBY MINIMISING LOWER BACK STRESSES AND LESSENS BENDING THE HEAD DOWN TO SEE THE KEYS.

I ALSO HAVE THE P.C MONITOR RAISED 200 mm ABOVE THE DESK TOP AT EYE LEVEL

WHEN SEATED THE ERGONOMIC PAD CAN ALSO BE USED FOR RESTING OTHER ARTICLES ON ,  ie:   READING A BOOK ,

CLIPBOARD ,  IPADS  etc..

 

NOTE:   MY ERGONOMICS PAD IS AS UGLY AS A HAT FULL OF CRUSHED SPIDERS , BUT IT SERVES ITS PURPOSE

 

 

POSTURE WHEN OBSERVING A HANDHELD ITEM

 

LOOKING AT A LOW HAND  MEANS USING MUSCLES TO UNECCESSARILY BEND THE HEAD DOWN AND FORWARD , EXCESSIVE TIME USED SHORTENING THESE HEAD DOWN AND FORWARD MUSCLES WILL CAUSE THEM TO GROW SHORT ( TIGHT )   AND EVENTUALLY GIVE THE POSTURE OF “ HUNCHED BACK “  APPEARANCE.

WHY NOT RAISE THE HAND TO EYE LEVEL TO OBSERVE THE HELD ITEM

 

TO  OFFSET  “ HUNCHED BACK “  APPEARANCE

·       RAISE HANDHELD ITEM  TO EYE LEVEL TO OBSERVE THE  ITEM

·       USE AN ERGONOMICS PAD WHEN SEATED

·       RAISE P.C. MONITORS TO EYE LEVEL

·       DAILY    SUPERMAN “  MOVEMENT  ( REFER Page  Exercise )
