How a Chiropractor Can Help Your Posture
By Sara Butler
You may be sick and tired of hearing about your posture by now – but not caring about posture may just leave you sick and tired! Practicing proper posture is one of the keys to better overall health and wellness, which is why you may get a lecture at the chiropractor’s office from time to time about it. The thing is, you should let the chiropractors at The Joint help you to improve your posture, and here’s how they can help.
What Does a Chiropractor Do?
When you see the chiropractor, an assessment is done of your spine and joints in order to check for any joint restrictions or dysfunctions. If any are found, then a chiropractic adjustment is performed to correct them. A chiropractor will use their hands to induce movement in a joint that may be immobile, restoring the range of motion and reducing any interference of nerve communication throughout your body. An adjustment also helps to stimulate your body’s natural healing process, so that your body can work as it was meant to.
How Chiropractors Help Posture
Another part of the assessment a chiropractor will do is to check for postural imbalances. Perhaps you have one shoulder higher than the other or a tilted pelvis – over time, these imbalances can have a serious impact on the body’s central nervous system. A chiropractor helps to correct these postural imbalances while at the same time encouraging your body to work more optimally. Once joint restrictions and dysfunctions have been removed, then you can begin to work on improving your posture and your overall health through chiropractic treatments, exercise, and better nutrition.
Chiropractors can help you with many different postural problems such as:
- Uneven hips or pelvis
- Forward head posture
- Damage to the normal curvature of the spine
Remember, it’s never too late (or too early!) to get help from a chiropractor with your posture. You can count on the chiropractors at The Joint to have the knowledge and ability to diagnose your postural issues and work with you on a treatment plan to help you improve. They may even have some useful suggestions for exercises that can help to strengthen and improve your posture even more.
