The Importance of Proper Posture
There are many ways to develop poor postural habits. We spend many hours of the day sitting at our desks, working on our computers, or using our smart phones. While many are aware that they have poor posture, they often do not know how to correct it. In addition to reducing neck and back pain, the following are additional benefits of good posture:
- Less aches and pains
- Better mood & memory
- Increased breathing capacity
- Confidence (appearance and feeling)
- Better concentration and mental acuity
How Can Chiropractic Help Your Posture?
At Yaletown Chiropractic, we understand that posture can affect your quality of life. By taking pictures of your posture and allowing you to see them and discuss the findings with your chiropractor, we are hoping to introduce more postural awareness than you had before. Years of poor habits have contributed to any postural faults you may have, so the neuromusculoskeletal system has adapted to these habits. Chiropractic adjustments in combination with corrective postural exercises will help re-train the nervous system and put the whole spine in a better position to minimize the effects of gravity.
Both Dr. Shawn and Dr. Brenda are postural analysis experts and often see great changes in their clients' posture as a result of chiropractic care.
To improve posture, try these helpful tips:
- Get an ergonomic assessment at your workplace
- Limit smartphone and laptop use, where possible
- Weight train with proper postural techniques (we can help)
- Make a visit to your chiropractor!
