bad posture

Posture is the position of the body when standing, sitting, or lying down. It’s more than just standing with your shoulders back or sitting straight. Good posture supports the spine correctly and minimizes spinal issues that can affect functionality in other areas of the body. Good posture also reduces the likelihood of chronic neck and back pain. Poor posture is a common condition of people of all ages with or without pre-exposed spinal issues because so many have developed bad posture habits subconsciously. Chiropractic care can help with improving and maintaining posture.

How Does Chiropractic Care Correct Bad Posture?

Chiropractic adjustments are generally good for back pain and overall spine health. It is also good to improve segmental motion which is relevant to posture. Low back pain is the single leading disability worldwide. Many people that develop poor posture experience low back pain, one of the most common conditions chiropractors treat. They treat low back pain not only after it is symptomatic but as a preventative measure. Chiropractic care reduces overall costs and improves patient care post-surgery and as surgery prevention. A series of spinal adjustments can help to restructure the vertebrae and change unevenness. Over time and with consistency, the adjustments will hold longer and the positive structural changes will become as close to permanent as possible as long as good posture habits are maintained.

Physical Therapy for Bad Posture

It is an ideal life habit to move, feel and live well. This involves constant physical activity. Studies reveal that physical activity might be of greater importance for good spinal control than if you had pain or not.  Physical therapy is essential for those who do experience pain related to poor posture, bad posture in general or just to make sure you age well. Effective physical therapy rehabilitation and education improves bad posture habits. Specific exercises and routines center on restoring function, removing pain, and retraining the body’s structure. Manual and physical therapy removes muscle and fascial adhesions and for chronic pain, the effectiveness accounts for the interactions between patient, therapist and intervention factors. Hence, it is important to choose a provider that addresses your needs and promotes the whole complex of therapeutic benefit.
