Correct posture refers to the ability to maintain a straight back without any muscular effort. If you need extra strength to keep your back straight, or if you feel tension in your spine, then most likely there are postural problems.
Poor posture can cause many diseases. Curvature of the spine spoils the appearance, disrupts the gait. When stooping, the abdomen protrudes and the chest collapses, which prevents proper ventilation of the lungs. By doing simple breathing exercises for posture regularly, you can straighten your spine, reduce slouching, and relieve back pain.
