How Poor Posture Makes You Constipated

Orem Chiropractor - R. Ned McArthur, D.C.
Hi this is Dr. Ned McArthur

This is number 3 in a  series of videos inspired by a 2012 Prevention Magazine article entitled 
seven weird ways your posture affects your health and happiness.

Today's topic: Bad posture as a cause of constipation In days past poor posture was a sign that you lacked manners, education, and respectability. 

Today, poor posture is a sign that you have a smartphone, a computer, and constipation. Many people sit all day long and for large portions of the day are looking at some kind of screen. If this sounds like you, you know that living and working like this leads to many kinds of pain and soreness. It also leads to being overly stimulated and overly stressed. Then add the physical pressure put on your intestines from sitting slumped over and the next time you feel like you gotta go you discover that you can't go. The good news is you can do something about it. Turn off the phone, move around and correct your posture.

Correcting your posture will help you look better, feel better and poop better.
