In the Long Run

Chiropractors are the first to talk about the benefits of good posture. Holding the body in its natural upright position relieves joints and musculature of compensating stresses and promotes better breathing, among other functions. Moreover, those who run or jog regularly should note that proper posture can help them while they engage in their favorite form of exercise. Running with the head and shoulders hunched forward invites. pain in the neck, back and shoulders. The forward-hunched running posture also makes breathing more difficult, which cuts into efficiency and performance. As part of a regular maintenance program, chiropractic treatment can not only improve the quality of everyday life, it may also improve exercise performance.

P.S. The muscles in your chest, neck, shoulders, and back can be trained to hold the body upright in its proper posture.
