Poor Posture

Poor posture can affect your body in numerous ways. Poor posture causes pain, soreness, poor digestion, it can affect breathing and fatigue. It is important to seek treatment for poor posture so it does not health problems. At Corrective Chiropractic in London, ON, our chiropractor provides a variety of natural treatments for postural issues.

Causes of Poor Posture

If you are unsure where your poor posture is coming from, here are the most common reasons:

  • Slouching while sitting down: While you focus on your task, you may not notice that you are slouching. This poor habit leads to shoulder, back, and neck pain.
  • Using your phone: With the increased use of mobile phones and other digital gadgets, many people complain about neck and back pain. While using your phone, you tilt your head forward, putting undue pressure on the spine and neck.
  • Improper sleeping position: Improper posture when sleeping puts undue pressure on the nerves, joints, and muscles, causing pain. That extra pillow may be a big problem!
  • Heavy lifting: Lifting weights in a sub-optimal position strains your muscles, causing back pain. Also, carrying weights on your shoulder may cause shoulder pain. 
  • Stress: Poor posture isn’t just about physical factors, but emotional factors, too. Stress causes tightness in the muscles, making it difficult for your muscles to support a vertical height.

Poor posture can be caused by many different factors, and often develops over time. Body aches will become a constant menace if you are not watchful of how you sit, sleep, walk, or lift weights.

Chiropractic Treatment for Poor Posture

If you have trouble maintaining a proper posture, a spinal adjustment will align your out-of-alignment joints, helping you maintain the correct posture. Additionally, our chiropractor may recommend structural correction to restore normal alignment of your spine.  We can also give you lifestyle advice, stretches and exercises to help you break the habits that may be contributing to your poor posture.
