How many hours a day do you spend sitting? Reading, using computers, driving, watching TV —all that sitting adds up, especially if we have poor posture. Did you know that lower back pain and other musculoskeletal conditions account for one third of missed work in BC? It’s time to Straighten Up!
BC’s chiropractors have helped to develop an app for that. Straighten Up Canada is a free, easy-to-perform posture program that you can use in just three minutes a day. It’s the only free Canadian app specifically designed and completely dedicated to improving posture and spinal health.
The Straighten Up Canada program can be practised almost anywhere and is a great warm up, cool down, standalone routine or ergonomic break. Good posture will help you to:
- Look and feel even better than you already do,
- Prevent back aches and muscle pains,
- Decrease wear and tear on your joints,
- Use less energy for daily tasks, and
- Increase your spine’s flexibility and resilience.
