How Chiropractic Helps to Improve Posture

Chiropractic Care for Improving Posture

Improving Bad Posture with Chiropractic

Poor Posture is one of the most prevalent epidemics in today’s society. Our new digital age has ushered in a multitude of innovations in science and technology, but it has also contributed to the slouching posture of millions. People all over the world spend the majority of their time sitting motionless in a chair hunched forward towards a computer screen. Countless others utilize most of their free time with their neck bent unnaturally forward to stare down at their phone’s screens. These activitiesset up their users for improper spine posture and alignment, which are the leading cause of early onset osteoarthritis.

A person’s spinal mechanics is pivotal to their overall health and wellbeing. Proper posture keeps the spinal column arranged in gradual curves, where the neck and head are set evenly above the shoulders, and the pelvis is tucked beneath the back. This position is called neutral spine. Correct spinal alignment maintains and evenly distributed pressure on the intervertebral discs andligaments that join the vertebrae together, and works as a shock absorber for the spine. The spinal column also serves as the nexus of over 100 billion neurons’ signals to the brain and back. In a neutral spine, these signals flow unhindered.

When someone doesn’t maintain good posture, their back muscles strain against the vertebrae and constantly attempt to pull them out of alignment. The physical manifestation of bad posture can vary from person to person. The more common presentations include chronic slouch, irregular tilting of the hips, rounded shoulders, head inclined forward, and neck jutted to a frontward position. The last symptom is commonly known as “tech neck”. These abnormal body positions can place a disproportionate amount of stress on portions of the intervertebral discs and put them at risk of degeneration, bulging and herniation. When this happens, the signals to and from the nerve endings can be significantly compressed, distorted or impaired, resulting in pain or discomfort. Improper posture can lead to several other symptoms and conditions that include:

·         Neck Pain
·         Stiff Neck
·         Lower Back Pain
·         Herniated Disc
·         Knee Pain
·         Hip Pain
·         Headaches

·         Numbness and Tingling
·         Muscle Weakness
·         Sciatica
·         Spinal Stenosis
·         Subluxation
·         Plantar Fasciitis
·         Abnormal Gait/Trouble Walking

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"I found Dr Aaron Beck while looking for an alternative to help resolve a compressed disc in my neck. After trying PT and spine injections, which did not resolve my issue, I found ASFCA. I have utilized their spinal decompression machine as well as cold lazer and it’s helped me a great deal. Now my issue is 80% resolved and my pain level is much lower. Hoping to get to 100% soon. I am a believer and Dr Beck is great to work with."
