Good Posture, Good Health: A Chiropractor Can Help!

By Genevieve Cunningham

Good posture is hard for a lot of people. While some people seem to have naturally perfect posture, most have to work hard to train their body to stay that way. Over time, we all tend to slouch a bit. And while this might not seem like a big deal, permanently bad posture can lead to pain, poor self-esteem, and an overall decline in health. So how do we improve our posture? We get help! If you're ready to turn your poor posture into a top-notch profile, take a look at how the chiropractor may be able to help you find success.

What Does Good Posture Look Like?

It's easy to spot good posture. But when you try to replicate it, you feel weird. You wonder whether your chest is out too far or your arms are too still. In order to practice good posture, you have to know specifically what to do. A few markers of good posture include:

  • Shoulders back and down - Your shoulders will be pulled back, but they'll also be relaxed away from your ears. If you keep your shoulders too tight, you'll get sore and tired.

  • Stomach pulled in - Imagine tying a string to your belly button and pulling it toward your spine. This engages the core muscles and gives your body more stability.

  • Chest out - When you pull your stomach muscles in, it will pop your chest out a bit. As a result, the chest will rise just a little bit and look more "out" than it used to.

How Does It Affect Health?

The thing about good posture is that it affects more than just your physical well-being. Sure, it can help reduce pain and improve muscle strength. But good posture can also improve your self-esteem, meaning you have better mental health. Improving your posture is an easy, powerful way to boost your health overall. 

How Can Chiropractic Care Help?

Chiropractic care can help with posture in multiple ways. First, it can help eliminate pain from the body. Once pain is removed, it's easier to work on improving your posture. Chiropractors may also give you tips and exercises that work specifically on the muscles used in good posture. They can tell you what you need to improve, specifically for your body. And then you can take that information, practice every day, and go back to the chiropractor for more treatment and more advice moving forward.
