Posture has become a quite a buzz-word in recent years. However, the understanding, importance and methods of correcting posture are often misunderstood.

My favourite definition of posture is, “The position from which the musculoskeletal system functions most efficiently.”

There are two main categories of posture, static and dynamic.

Static Posture

Static Posture may be defined as “…the position of the body at rest, sitting, standing or lying”. This means that if you have poor posture before you move, you are more likely to have poor posture whilst moving. Therefore, poor static posture could well be expressed in your movements.
