Your mother always told you to stand up straight and she was right.
Good posture is very important.
It is good for your health, your mood, and even how you are perceived by others. Good posture can help you stave off age related conditions and allow your vital organs plenty of room to do their job correctly.
A Word about Posture
Sometimes things can happen that impact your posture. Maybe you sustain an injury and your body compensates by listing to one side or you hunch over in an effort to relieve the pain. Other times you may slouch in an effort to make yourself invisible in a crowd. Then there are those who just don't give good posture its due and slouch because they simply don't feel like standing up straight.
Whatever the case, poor posture can lead to back pain, headaches, increased risk of injury, decreased flexibility, and diminished mobility. It can actually cause you to age much faster. The good news is, in most cases even those with very poor posture can turn it around and stand a little taller. Chiropractic care has shown to help many people regain their youthful, straight, healthy posture that they lost.
Postural Conditions that Chiropractic Care can Help
There are certain postural conditions that chiropractic care is particularly helpful is alleviating, including:
Hip or pelvis unleveling
Damage to the low back, mid back, and neck that affects its normal curvature
Forward head posture (often associated with using mobile devices)
Kyphosis or hunchback
Chiropractic Care for Posture Problems
When you first visit your chiropractor, he or she will sit down with you and discuss the problems you are having, what your complaints are, when the problem started, and events that may have contributed to the problem. They will take a thorough medical history and observe the way you sit, walk, bend, and move.
You will be asked to stand straight and the doctor will take measurements to determine if there is any visible deviation from your optimum posture. He or she will ask you to move and bend while they test your range of motion, mobility and flexibility as well as your muscle strength and length.
If you have poor posture you can change it, even if you are an older adult or a senior. Often simple chiropractic adjustments can help improve posture within just a few sessions. Once your body is in alignment you will feel more energetic, healthier, and happier. Your body is an intricate machine and when one part isn't functioning as it should, it affects all the other parts. Chiropractic can turn that around, helping your body function more effectively so you feel better and move better!
