An individual who wants to prevent a herniated disc can ensure they always maintain good posture. Posture describes the position in which an individual keeps their body while they are sitting, standing, or lying down. Proper posture helps to keep an individual's joints and bones in the correct position to ensure their supporting muscles are being utilized properly. Maintaining proper posture helps an individual reduce the amount of wear and tear on the surfaces of their joints, which can help prevent arthritis and the degeneration of cartilaginous tissues. Correct posture in a sitting position involves an individual sitting up with their shoulders back and their back straight with their buttocks touching the back of a chair. Proper posture can be maintained when lying down or sleeping by choosing a firm mattress and box spring that does not exhibit sagging when body weight is placed on it. This firmness ensures all of the curves in the back are maintained while lying down or sleeping.
