10-Second Exercises to Improve Posture

By

Each member of the Tuck Chiropractic team has their own unique expertise. For Dr. Nancy Meyer, that happens to be posture. Dr. Meyer is a Certified Posture Exercise Professional (CPEP®) and enjoys educating her patients about the importance of exercising to improve posture.

Dr. Meyer says that it’s not about good or bad posture, but more about meeting the patient’s needs. Here are a couple of easy tips that you can do to work towards improving your posture.

 

Standing Wall Exercise

  1. Starting in a standing position, lift your leg off of the ground. Keep your knee bent at a 90 degree angle.
  2. Lift your leg up to be in line with your hip.
  3. Hold for 10 seconds (or as long as you can).
  4. Switch legs and repeat.

90 Degree Standing Leg Lift

  1. Start with your back against the wall.
  2. While resting your back on the wall, move your feet away from the wall about 8 inches. Keep feet shoulder width apart.
  3. Close the space between your back and the wall by moving your belly button towards the wall.
  4. Hold for 10 seconds and repeat.

Both of these quick and easy exercises are designed to improve your core strength. A strong core can help prevent slouching which causes strain on the lower back.
