Good Posture Improves Osteoarthritis

Poor posture doesn’t cause osteoarthritis, but it’s a contributing factor. Uneven stress on a joint can accelerate osteoarthritis, especially if there is a problem with the joint structure already, says Sandy B. Ganz, PT, an associate in research at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.

What can you do to prevent it from getting any worse? Walk it off, literally, but be conscious of your posture. Keep your upper body comfortably straight, not leaning forward or backward. Your head should be up, chin parallel to the ground, eyes on a spot about 20 feet ahead. Keep your hips and shoulders facing forward, and your shoulders loose and relaxed. Swingingyour arms is optional, just keep it loose and comfortable and don’t hold them too high. Step so that your heel hits the ground first, then roll through to your toe before the next step.  Most importantly,  have fun with it!
