What Your Posture Says About You

By Alexis Mills

I'm sure everyone's mother reminded them to keep their shoulders back and to stand up straight, and at that young age, I groaned at the constant reminder. But as an adult, I've come to learn that Mom was right: Posture is important, not only for health, but for how you present yourself to the world.

Maintaining a good posture is essential to living a healthy and pain-free life.

What Characterizes Good Posture

To evaluate your posture, go through the key points to keep your posture on point throughout the day. Be sure to keep your:

  • Chin up
  • Chest lifted
  • Shoulders back and down
  • Stomach in
  • Tailbone slightly tucked
  • Knees slightly bent
  • Feet hip-width apart

By maintaining great posture you are keeping your spine in alignment and not putting any added pressure on it or the rest of the body. When in proper alignment, your lungs are able to expand to help you breathe deeper and get more oxygen. Our posture also says a lot about what is going on with us emotionally and internally. If you see someone who is slouched, people may assume a person is in a bad mood or down in the dumps when they might just be tired. Our attitude is connected with our posture and how we hold ourselves.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Posture

Chiropractic care focuses around the spine and it checks for any joint dysfunctions or restrictions. A chiropractor is able to check for postural imbalances in the spine, shoulders, and neck. Problem areas can be targeted and any joint restrictions can be addressed to help improve posture. Your mother will be so proud to see you standing so tall!
