Poor Posture

 

Posture is the window to the spine. Poor posture can indicate underlying problems with a person’s spine and/or nervous system.

One of the first indicators of poor posture is a slouching or forward head posture. This posture will cause more strain on the neck and shoulder muscles. It also increases the weight bearing on the discs and can lead to premature arthritis of the neck or even more seriously, a bulging disc. There are many causes of poor posture including car accidents, sports injuries, working with computers, and decreased bone density.

Chiropractors analyze posture and spinal problems and focus on correcting those that contribute to poor posture. By changing the relationship of the bones through chiropractic adjustments, poor posture can be corrected and reversed.
