A person’s posture is vitally important to a healthy life; however, we often give far too little consideration to it. Poor posture is the result of work or activities that place the spine in a stressed, flexed position for long periods of time, such as sitting at a computer all day, sitting in your car during long commutes, or simply sitting in front of the TV.
Posture problems arise when the bones are not used to moving through their full extension. As the bones become accustomed to this stunted range of motion, the muscles, ligaments and soft tissues of the spine are forced to adapt, taking on new forms. The problem then becomes compounded, as it is very difficult to revert these altered forms to their original forms, leading to poor posture.
At Dynamic Chiros, we are well versed in the root causes of poor posture, as well as the treatments necessary to reverse course and put a patient’s body back into its original, working alignment.
Poor posture doesn’t discriminate when it comes to physicality. Instead, it focuses on people with a more sedentary lifestyle. Anyone who spends most of their time sitting is at risk, including students, people with desk jobs, drivers and others. Computers are certainly to blame for the modern era’s number of people with poor posture, which has resulted in untold headaches, neck pain, back pain and poor breathing patterns. Computers may be a modern convenience, but they’re also a modern health hazard.
The spine is highly susceptible to injury and ailment as a result of poor posture. When the spine’s normal curves are lost to one’s poor posture, a large variety of health problems can present themselves in the neck and back, and other problems such as poor circulation and vision impairment are also possible outcomes.
Luckily, it is easy to measure one’s posture. All you need is a mirror. When you are standing in a neutral position, your ears, shoulders and hips should be level with one another. If you see a head tilt, low shoulder or high hip, you may be susceptible to, or already have, poor posture.
You’ll also want to do an examination from the side. Have another person look into your ear hole, at the tip of your shoulder and the middle of your hip while in the same neutral standing position — all three anatomical structures should be lined up. If your head is leaning forward or your hips or shoulders aren’t centered properly, you most likely suffer from poor posture.
The staff at Dynamic Chiros is highly educated in proper posture and how to correct poor posture. We’ll help you by creating a personalized treatment that will better your posture and help it stay that way. So if you’re affected by the negative consequences of poor posture, go ahead and set up an appointment. We’ll help you work through your posture issues in order for you to live a happy, healthy, pain-free life.
