Poor Posture and Backache; Chiropractic can Help you Stand Tall Again!

Posture is the position in which we hold our bodies while standing, sitting, or lying down. Good posture is the correct alignment of body parts supported by the right amount of muscle tension against gravity. Without posture and the muscles that control it, we would simply fall to the ground. It is important to discover the reason for poor posture and to treat the problem before further health issues arise. A chiropractor is trained to detect poor posture and reasons for poor posture. Unhealthy posture can mean there are problems with the spine or nervous system. One of the most common posture problems is a forward tilt of the pelvis. The body’s weight can shift forward and cause curvature and muscle weakness. This can cause lower back pain, muscle pain, sciatica, leg weakness, and circulation problems in the lower extremities.

Chiropractic treatment can address health issues caused by a forward tilt of the pelvis and other posture problems. A chiropractor may use spinal manipulation to realign the pelvis and prevent it from tipping. Stretching exercises may be prescribed to help reduce muscle tension and pain. Research has shown that poor posture can lead to further health problems. Take good care of your spine and attend to any painful areas early on. A chiropractor can teach you how to maintain a healthy posture, so that you can protect your back while you sleep, exercise and work.
