Can a Chiropractor Help Correct Poor Posture?

By Sara Butler

Poor posture can impact anyone -- and it happens to impact the lives of a lot of people. It’s the root cause for a host of physical ailments but it’s also something you have total control over. Slouching, hunching, and leaning is a choice. Here’s how the chiropractors at The Joint can help you to make better choices when it comes to your posture.

Why Good Posture is So Difficult to Maintain

Good posture is a challenge, there’s no disputing that. It’s much easier to hunch forward or slouch than it is to keep the natural curves of your spine intact or your shoulders back. While it may be true that some people have physical issues that make proper posture a challenge, most people have poor posture due to positional issues, such as:

  • Excessive weight
  • Weakness in the muscles of the abdomen
  • Muscle imbalance
  • Pain that makes proper posture uncomfortable
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Degenerative conditions
  • Over-reliance on non-ergonomic chairs

The Consequences

One of the results of poor posture in your life is pain. Remember that your body seeks out a balance. If you’re sitting or standing in a way that causes an imbalance, then other muscles will activate to attempt to find a balance. After a time, the undue pressure put on your joints results in joint dysfunction and restrictions that eventually lead to pain and discomfort. If not addressed, then chronic pain can result that you believe is the result of some other problem. The truth is that it’s been your posture all along.

How the Chiropractor Helps

The chiropractors at The Joint can analyze your posture in order to determine the root cause of any pain or discomfort you may be having. Chiropractors take note of:

  • The height of your shoulders
  • The tilt of your pelvis
  • The way you stand
  • Changes in your gait
  • Any increase in the curves of your spine
  • Alignment of your knees

Once the root cause can be determined, then they can discuss postural issues you may be having, then work with you to create a treatment plan to help correct any issues and help you attain better posture.

Don’t let your posture become a problem. Make chiropractic care at The Joint a regular part of your health care and keep your posture on point!
