In fact, posture has a direct load on the spine and if it causes a load on the muscles and then on the tendons and bones, it generates significant pain. Back straight, shoulders not hunched over and chin lifted. To optimize the results it is useful to do dell sport daily because regularity improves posture.

Even the mattress and the cushion they are very important, this factor is often underestimated but in reality to keep your back healthy you need to do everything and therefore also give your back a peaceful rest that helps maintain the position.
