Health Tip: Six Exercises for Poor Posture

(HealthDay News) -- If you find yourself slouching or unable to stand straight, you may have poor posture, says Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. For many, poor posture can lead to back and neck pain.

The school suggests these six exercises for poor posture:

  • Head press.
  • Elbow press.
  • Chest lift.
  • Bridge.
  • Press up.
  • Superman.

If poor posture or back pain is interfering with daily activities, OSU urges you to seek medical attention.
