If you think you have ‘Bad Posture’ then be encouraged!
In episode 14 of ‘Be Fit 2 Sit Podcast’, Physio Kym Siddons celebrates World Physiotherapy Day, along with ‘Women’s Health Week’ by addressing a concern so many women ask her for help with…
So Kym talks about how it’s never too late to improve your postural alignment, your spinal flexibility and strength- you you can feel confident, more capable and reduce strain in your back and neck.
Now that’s worth celebrating!
Common concerns people have about their posture are
– rounded shoulders
– a slouched back
– an increased ‘hump’ at the base of their neck
Kym chats about what does and doesn’t constitute ‘poor posture’, and inspires you in how you can make small, simple adjustments throughout your day that will make a real difference over time.
She talks you through how to position yourself in a healthy posture while you sit or stand
+ directs you to her ‘Best Desk Stretches and Exercises’ video that will instruct you in targeted stretches and exercises to improve your spinal flexibility and strength.

She then goes on to help you establish healthy posture habits, becoming more aware of when you’re not in a healthy posture, then repositioning yourself, and moving more regularly while you’re sitting.
