Poor posture is so common nowadays that it is almost accepted as the norm, but bad posture can lead to a number of common problems including low back pain, neck pain, headaches and much more. It can also affect breathing, digestion and your mental state. This is why we place such a large focus on posture at Align Corrective Chiropractic. We believe that good posture is essential to a healthy well-functioning body.
What is the cause of bad posture?
Unfortunately, our modern sedentary lifestyles combined with the amount of time we sit hunched over our desks, phones and computers has created a poor posture epidemic. The research is clear that poor posture is effecting our health and should not be ignored.
Treatment of bad posture?
The first step in correcting bad posture is in accurately assessing your posture. At Align Corrective Chiropractic we use digital posture photography as well as full spine X-rays to precisely measure your posture. We also use weight balance and functional testing to determine where your weaknesses are. All this information helps us to determine exactly what is wrong with your posture and what we need to do in order to fix it.
We make use of the latest and most researched techniques in Chiropractic to fix bad posture. Chiropractic adjustments, spinal traction/remodelling, mirror image exercises and weighted whole body vibration is routinely used to ensure the best possible results.
We see people every day, whose common aches and pains (that have almost become a way of life) start to disappear as they begin working on their posture. Not only do they feel better, but they often notice increased range of motion, less tension and experience a better night’s sleep. Isn’t it time you pay your posture some attention?
