Chiropractic Tip: Time to Lose that Digital Slouch

By Sandy Schroeder

As one busy day after another moves through, most of us show up and get to work. We may hunch over a keyboard, slouch in our chair, or sit for hours at a time. We usually manage to get the work done, but we may be setting ourselves up for back and neck aches, or leg pain, as our bodies pay the price.

If you can relate, you may need to lose that slouch and rethink your daily routine. Your local chiropractor can help you check your posture and workspace to avoid pain and prevent future injuries.

The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you provides a wellness center with licensed chiropractors who will start where you are to find the best answers.

When you come in, your chiropractor will want to hear about your work routine, aches and pains and health history. A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may help you shed neck and back pain as you enjoy more energy, less stress, and better sleep.

Weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments may help you continue to feel better as you fix your posture and workspace. Your chiropractor will work to help:

  • Improve your posture at home and at work
  • Strengthen core muscles with key exercises
  • Avoid future pain and injury

Taking a Closer Look at Work

You and your chiropractor can check your posture at work. You may want to have someone take a picture of you to see what is happening.

  • Is your head jutting forward?
  • Are your shoulders slouched into a hunch?
  • Do you have an adjustable chair with good back support?
  • Are your feet flat on the floor?
  • Is your monitor at eye level?
  • Could you be using a work platform to stand or sit?

Seeing What’s Up at Home

At the end of the day, do you hunch over the wheel as you drive home or slump on the couch when you get home? Do you and your kids bend forward over screens using phones, tablets and laptops for hours at a time?

Being aware of posture is an ongoing task that makes the difference between a strong, active body, and one that becomes increasingly stiff and sore with less mobility.

Putting Exercise to Work

The American Chiropractic Association advises us to use good posture and daily activities to thrive. Your chiropractor can help you:

  • Establish 30-minutes a day of walking, jogging or workouts
  • Strengthen core muscles with key exercises
  • Rethink work routines adding regular breaks

When you are ready to get started, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to find out more about the packages and plans for affordable personal healthcare that eliminate the hassle of insurance. Clinics are open weekend and evenings. No appointments are needed.
