How Chiropractic Care Helps Improve Posture

In today’s world of increasing mobile phone and computer screen time, our viewing habits are having a significant impact on our posture. Stress can also cause misalignment via tension held in certain areas of our bodies like our shoulders. Bad posture is more than just a cosmetic issue – it can lead to serious health problems. That’s where chiropractic care comes in.

Regular adjustments may help improve how you stand and sit, which in turn can help alleviate back pain, headaches, and other issues caused by poor posture.

Here are a few other ways chiropractic could help you:

1. Adjustments can help align your spine. One of the major causes of poor posture is a ‘misaligned’ spine. When your spine is out of alignment, or moving poorly, it puts strain on your muscles and ligaments, which can lead to pain and stiffness. Adjustments can help align and mobilise your spine, which takes the pressure off of your muscles and ligaments and can help improve your posture.

2. Chiropractic care can help strengthen the muscles that support your spine. When your spine is misaligned, or moving poorly, proper muscle support weakens. Over time, this can lead to a significant loss of strength. Chiropractic care can help reestablish the brain-body connection and provide the correct stimulus to aid in strengthening these muscles, which will help improve your posture.

3. Adjustments can release tension in the muscles that support your spine. Are your muscles tense or tight often? Because adjustments are designed to restore alignment and movement, that means your muscles won’t have to pull as hard to keep things in their correct position.

4. It may help improve your balance. When your spine is out of alignment, naturally your brain-body connection is not functioning optimally, this means it can cause you to lose your balance. Chiropractic care works to restore that connection and therefore your balance, making it easier for you to stand or sit tall.

5. Chiropractic care can help improve your flexibility. When your muscles are tight, they can restrict your range of motion and make it difficult to change positions, or maintain an optimal posture. This can lead to mobility issues. Chiropractic addresses the root cause of the problem, allowing things to move easier within your body. If you are struggling with poor posture, we’d love to help.
