We are continually seeing more and more people suffering from poor posture, mostly due to bad habits of staring at computers and cell phones for extended periods of time. These bad habits lead to poor posture which leads to excess pressure on the discs, joints, nerves, ligaments, and muscles of the head and neck. Eventually this leads to neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, and tingling in the arms and hands.
So, how can Chiropractic care help with improving posture?
Chiropractors are experts at finding and relieving areas of increased pressure in the head, neck, and spine. So being adjusted by a Chiropractor will take the pressure off of the discs, joints, ligaments, and other soft tissues. This will provide relief for the patient, but will not fix the poor posture. If a person gets adjusted, but then goes back to their bad habits, they're going to end up with the same problem all over again.
Chiropractors are also experts in giving exercises and advice to patients to help them actually change their posture. As long as a patient continues the exercises and lifestyle modifications recommended by the Chiropractor, he or she will not get the ill effects of poor posture again.
So the answer is YES, Chiropractic can help to not only treat the symptoms related to poor posture but also to help improve posture and achieve long lasting results.
