• Keeping good posture helps you maintain good bone health by protecting you from fractures.
  • Spinal fractures occur when you bend your trunk forward (such as bending over to tie your shoes or slumping while sitting) or twist your spine (such as sweeping and mopping). Limiting these movements decreases the likelihood of spinal fractures.
  • Avoiding these movements may seem difficult when you’re performing daily activities, but the following guidelines help make it easy. Plus you can do simple exercises to help improve your posture.
