The Issue: Hunched Shoulders
To assess posture, injury specialist and kinesiologist Rick Kaselj says to ask someone to take side profile photos of you. Your earlobe, shoulder, and hip should be in alignment on both sides. Take another set of photos with arms overhead; if your arms don’t line up with your ears, it also suggests an imbalance.
Lie on your back with your feet flat on the floor and a pillow above your head. Raise your arms overhead and press them into the pillow 10 times for a few seconds each. Repeat. Do this daily, and you’ll help pull your shoulders down and back, and counteract the effects of the typical hunched-forward sitting position.Back to top
