Causes of poor posture

At Northside Chiropractic, we look at your posture as the foundation of every movement your body makes. Your posture determines how well your body adapts to the stresses it experiences day-to-day.

For example:

 

  • carrying weight
  • sitting/standing in an awkward position & even gravity!

When we don’t have the correct posture, our muscles work harder to keep us upright. You’ll experience inhibition from some muscles, while other muscles will become tight and inflexible.

Over time you can expect these dysfunctional adaptations to impair your body and its ability to deal with the forces braced upon it from everyday living.

Poor posture is likely to inflict extra wear and tear on joints and ligaments and increase the likelihood of accidents. It can also make organs like your lungs less efficient, as bad posture compresses your abdomen, limiting the expansion of the lungs. This reduced expansion means a significantly reduced lung capacity and as such a smaller intake of oxygen to the body.

Chiropractic Posture Correction Treatments

If left untreated, poor posture can put a great deal of stress on your body. It can put a strain on your muscles, from your feet and legs all the way up to your shoulders and neck. To ensure this doesn’t happen to you, we offer a number of different treatments options for correcting posture at Northside Chiropractic:

Spinal Adjustments

We can adjust and correct your spine alignment to give you fast and effective relief. Our chiropractors will use their hands or a specially designed small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint to correct any misalignments.

Soft Tissue Therapy

Soft tissue therapy is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal system. It is used to treat and alleviate musculoskeletal pain, as well as improve body flexibility, strength and wellness.
