Effects of poor posture

Your posture determines how well your body adapts to the stresses it experiences day-to-day and so at our Heidelberg clinic we look at your posture as the foundation of every movement your body makes. Carrying excess weight, sitting or standing in an awkward position and even gravity can cause poor posture.

If you maintain poor posture the following may happen:

  • Muscles work harder to keep you upright
  • Leads to inhibition from some muscles
  • Other muscles become tight and inflexible
  • Inflict extra wear and tear on joints and ligaments
  • Increases the likelihood of accidental injuries
  • Organs like your lungs can become less efficient – bad posture compresses your abdomen, limiting the expansion of the lungs
  • Reduced expansion means significantly reduced lung capacity and therefore smaller intake of oxygen to the body

Without the correct posture treatment, you’re likely to suffer from shoulder, neck and back pain.

FAQs

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any more questions about our chiropractic posture correction in Heidelberg. In the meantime, you can find our most frequently asked questions below, which may also provide you with the additional information you’re looking for. 

How can I improve my posture?

A combination of awareness, treatment and corrective exercises can significantly improve your posture.

Is it too late to fix my posture?

It’s never too late to improve your posture. With the help of a number of safe, yet powerful chiropractic techniques, you can go a long way toward fixing your posture.

How do I know if I have good or bad posture?

When you stand up straight, both your upper and lower back should be straight and your hips should be in good alignment with your shoulders and knees. Our experts will be able to confirm if you have good or bad posture.

My back aches when I sit for a long time, does that mean I have bad posture?

Sitting in a slouched or hunched-over position can put significant strain on your back. When the position is maintained for an extended period of time it can lead to backaches.

Do I have to keep my back straight all the time to have good posture?

The position of your spine is key to good posture. Correct posture should maintain the three natural curves of your spine (neck, mid-back, lower back) but not increase them.
