How Chiropractic Treatment Helps Posture , Wesley Chapel, Florida

Good posture, also called a neutral spine, has many benefits. One of the most important is that it can prevent back injuries. Chiropractic care can help further maintain your posture.

Posture is important because it can keep alignment with bones and joints and reduce stress on ligaments. Also, muscle strain can be prevented which reduce the risk of injury. Since the muscles are used more efficiently, energy can be conserved. 

 Abnormal posture can lead to an abnormal spine. The graphic “Crooked Man” is a prime example of this:

Signs you have poor posture:

  • Hunched shoulders
  • Rounded shoulders
  • Rounded upper back
  • Forward tilted head 
  • Arched lower back

Factors that could contribute to poor posture include pregnancy, stress, obesity, weak postural muscles, high heeled shoes, and tight muscles.

How to maintain good posture:

Its important to bring attention to your posture as you sit, stand, or lie down. Use low back support when sitting and keep both feet on the floor. When lying down it's critical to choose the right mattress and pillow, and avoid sleeping on your stomach. 

Importance of Chiropractic Care:

Your chiropractor can help your posture through chiropractic adjustments, exercises and recommendations on proper positions during different activities.

Make an appointment to talk to a chiropractic doctor about chiropractic and posture.
