Poor posture affects most of us at some time in our lives (It’s possible that poor posture can affect our comfort levels throughout a single day). Poor posture is common and it’s correctable, but it’s also something that can cause serious problems; poor posture can cause stiffness, discomfort, and pain. Posture is something that we can control, but it’s not something that many (If not all) of us think of continually. It’s easy to slump or slouch, lean or hunch; it’s especially easy to get our bodies into these positions when we’re tired. And the pain and discomfort that can arise from poor posture can be intense. But your chiropractor at Larson Chiropractic can help, and chiropractic care can go beyond the manipulation of the back to reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness.
Bad posture is the cause of postural habits, but it’s also caused by excessive weight, weakness in the midsection, muscular imbalance, degenerative conditions, genetics, and many other reasons. One of the consequences of bad posture is pain. Our bodies need balance, and when a person keeps the body out of alignment, out of balance, the body feels it.
Your chiropractor at Larson Chiropractic can help to both reduce your pain and stiffness and help to analyze your posture, helping you discover the root of your posture problem. Your chiropractor at Larson Chiropractic will consider your build, alignment and stance, spinal curvature, etc., and help you determine the best way to correct your posture so that you can make subtle corrections throughout the day and keep your body looking and feeling healthier. Chiropractic treatment will help you to feel better, but you have to be the one to correct your posture. It’s difficult to correct bad posture habits, but it’s possible.
