Perfect posture creates a balance that distributes your weight evenly. This eliminates extraordinary stress on any bone, muscle or tendon. When properly postured, the spine has three natural curves; neck, mid-back, and lower back. Ideally, your head is held above your shoulders and your shoulders and hips are aligned.
This alignment eliminates extraordinary stress on any bone, muscle or tendon.
Posture & Alignment
Your backbone consists of building blocks, called vertebra. Discs separating the vertebra provide cushioning and flexibility. Supporting the backbone is the musculoskeletal system, which consists of muscles, tissue, and joints. The musculoskeletal system bears the stress while your back is at work, protecting your backbone and spinal cord. Ideally, this stress is distributed evenly, resulting in pain free movement.
Poor posture creates an imbalance that can result in Dysfunction and pain. “Slouching,” as well as workplace strain, injury and degeneration are common causes for this type of imbalance. Pain occurs when muscles are strained, tendons are over-stretched and bones bear uneven weight. Through Chiropractic therapies, we strive to align the back and supporting skeletal system to the ideal posture position, allowing muscles, tendons and joints to work without aggravation.
Poor posture can also contribute to gastrointestinal (GI) tract symptoms, fatigue, incontinence, constipation, dizziness, headache and a myriad of other symptoms.
Cold Laser Therapy (LLLT) has also proven beneficial to ease tension in supporting muscles and tendons. LLLT can also improve muscular strength and flexibility by activating the healing process.
