Chiropractic Care and Posture

By Paul Rothbart

For some, posture is an artifact of charm school, British royalty, or 1950s sitcom mothers. Who has time for all that sitting up straight, shoulders up, head back stuff? As it turns out, everyone could benefit from finding the time. Good posture can be helpful in several ways that can improve your health. Combined with regular chiropractic care, you may find yourself feeling better than ever. Here are some facts.

Self-Esteem

When you walk around with your eyes pointed at the ground and shoulders slumped, it can have a detrimental effect on confidence. It's almost as if you are avoiding eye contact with everyone. When you stand tall with your head up, you can meet the gaze of everyone you encounter. You look and feel confident. Sitting this way can help you navigate that big meeting at work. You may also feel less anxious on a first date or when meeting in-laws for the first time. Body English is a legitimate form of communication, even on a subconscious level. Send the right message. You are confident and capable. It can make quite a difference in your work and personal life.

It's Better for Your Spine

Slumping places a curve in the spine that can cause problems over time. Discs can become compressed which can result in subluxations and pain. This can affect the upper or lower back as well as the neck. Headaches are also commonly caused by spine issues. Poor posture can also impact the joints, causing pain and limiting range of motion. Making the effort to practice good posture every day is one of the best things you can do for your body. Another good move is seeing a chiropractor.

A Strong Core

When you consistently maintain good posture, it strengthens the muscles of the back and abdomen. These core muscles have the challenging job of supporting the upper body on top of the lower body. You use them constantly in almost every type of activity. A strong core is essential to staying healthy and active.

Chiropractic Care

Coupled with good posture, regular chiropractic visits can help relieve pain and keep you active. Should you develop subluxations or other problems, a chiropractor can find them and make adjustments. This can go a long way toward relieving back and neck pain, headaches, and helping the joints function at their best. Regular treatments can make it easier to maintain good posture and a chiropractor can give you tips that can help further.

Posture does make a difference. Once it becomes a habit, you don't even have to think about it anymore. Maintain good posture and consider a visit to The Joint Chiropractic. You don't need an appointment. You may find that regular chiropractic care will help your posture and together, they help you feel better.
