Straighten Up Alberta (SUA) is a public education program offered by Alberta’s chiropractors, designed to increase self-awareness of posture and guide Albertans in strengthening their posture to improve spinal health. The SUA program is easy to perform, takes only minutes and can be easily incorporated into everyday life.
When evaluated, study participants who practiced Straighten Up for at least five weeks reported1:
- improved their posture,
- strengthened core muscles, and
- that their backs were more comfortable from sitting and standing more upright
