Posture – Walking

"Change the direction of your walks each time you leave your home. Roads are cambered which can lead to having one hip low/high if you follow the same route each time."

Here are some tips to keep in mind when walking outside to keep good posture and keep your joints healthy.

– Keep your head held high and chin parallel to the ground.

– Back long and tall to maintain good posture, no slouching or rounding your shoulders. 

– Proper footwear while walking. 

-Elbows slightly bent at your side and swinging naturally with the movement of your body.

-Pelvis tucked under your torso.

-Change the direction of your walks each time you leave your home. Roads are cambered which can lead to having one hip low/high if you follow the same route each time. 

-Remember to breath, keep shoulders relaxed, hands relaxed with an open palm and ensure your jaw is relaxed. 

-Engage core by bringing belly button to spine.

-Engage your glutei (buttocks) muscles with each step-when leg is extended (backwards).

-Walk with purpose, heal-toe, heal-toe.

-Stay hydrated.

-Stretching after a walk.

Happy healthy walking.
