05 Jul Perfect Posture
Perfect posture and Healthy posture are not necessarily the same thing. With perfect posture your ear, shoulder hip and ankle should all line up from the side.
This sounds great, however, some people have perfect posture in the way that they stand but, when they move out of perfect their joints are unstable and prone to injury.
Healthy posture is where you are in good alignment but you have good flexibility as well. This means that if you slump in your chair all day because of the health and flexibility of your posture, no damage is done and you feel no pain.
