Loose abdominal muscles and body posture

Loose abdominal muscles and body posture


The way we look and feel is highly dependent on our body posture. Before anything else, people notice body posture when a person enters the room. This comes before noticing the big breasts or voluptuous curves of a woman or her big and alluring buttocks. Body posture also speaks volume about us and our living habits. A correct body posture is essential for the aesthetics of the body but also for good health.


Even from a young age, we should pay attention to the condition of the spine and our body posture to be able to keep our health throughout the years. An incorrect body posture can force the muscles and ligaments to keep the body out of balance. This can trigger tiredness, back and muscle pain, headaches, dizziness, sleep perturbances, anxiety, loss of memory and concentration, irascibility, deregulation of the peripheric blood circulation, and the deformation of the spine. If this issue is not addressed in a timely manner, the health condition can be altered, the bone system can be affected, as well as the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. The whole functioning of the body can be affected by an incorrect body posture. But how do we end up with having a bad posture? Well, you should know that the muscles of the abdominal wall play a major role in supporting the spine and in having a correct body posture.


A condition that affects the abdominal muscles called diastasis recti (where a gap is created between the left and right sides of the muscles on the median line of the tummy) can have severe repercussions on the spine. The lack of a toned and efficient muscle on the abdominal wall can cause a decentration of the spine by accentuating lumbar lordosis. This is how we explain lower back pain in patients suffering from diastasis recti and the alleviation of pain after the muscles were strengthened during the tummy tuck. The tummy tuck is the procedure recommended to correct loose abdominal muscles if the patient is also confronted with an excess of skin sagginess on the abdominal wall.


Some people tend to consider the tummy tuck as a method to lose weight. Others think it is performed for purely aesthetic reasons. But the truth is that abdominoplasty can also improve the health condition of the patient aside from providing her with a firm and flat tummy. When the tummy tuck is performed, the skin on the abdominal wall is detached from the muscles and elevated up to the rib cage. The muscles are brought together and sutured to strengthen them. This procedure will help the patient have not only a flatter tummy but also an overall good body posture.


Keep in mind that it is necessary to have a regular physical exercise routine to sustain the results of the tummy tuck for longer and to have strong muscles on the tummy that will help you keep a good body posture.
