IF A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS,
WHAT DOES YOUR POSTURE SAY ABOUT YOU?
We live in a world where appearance counts. A person who stands erect with their head over the shoulders and the back straight, gets the benefit of the doubt. Often positive attributes like importance, elegance and refinement are instinctively attributed to this person.
The importance of posture goes far beyond making good first impressions. Humans are intended to stand erect, and that makes our posture critical to our health and well being. Poor posture magnifies the effect of gravity by over stressing muscles, joints and nerves. It is a condition that transcends age, sex, and socioeconomic boundaries. Poor posture is one of the underlying causes of chronic pain, but there is good news. Chiropractors are uniquely qualified to help you improve your postural alignment and gait.

Strengthening deep spinal muscles is the key to improving spinal biomechanics. Standard exercise routines that include abdominal crunches may not promote postural improvement. Therefore, it is vital that patients have an exercise program tailored to their specific needs.
