UK experts are now saying there could be some benefits to slouching – and it could actually help to keep our spine in shape.
Physiotherapists at the University Hospital of North Tees in Durham concluded that slump-sitting postures can help to increase the amount of fluid in between spinal discs – helping to reduce stiffness in joints.
Australian studies have also shown that slouching for short periods can help to relax muscles in the core and legs.
So mums don’t stress when the kids begin to slouch!
Whether you’re prone to sitting upright or to slouching, the key is to switch up your positions regularly, and take a break when you can to stretch your legs and go for a walk.
