THE IMPACT OF POOR POSTURE
Poor posture has become epidemic as most of us sit far too long with our heads tilted forward – going against the natural curvature of the spine. This is referred to as “forward head posture” or “loss of cervical lordosis”. Initially, most people feel tension, soreness, and stiffness in their neck and shoulders. Unfortunately, most people ignore these subtle signs or take medication to mask the symptoms. These symptoms, if left unchecked, may slowly over time develop into more serious conditions, such as headaches, migraines, loss of proper motion, arthritis, neck pain, lower back pain, sciatica, and disc problems.
Recent research shows that prolonged sitting has a detrimental impact on the health of our spine, and thus our overall health. Therefore, our posture is a direct refection of overall health. Poor posture can lead to subluxations, or nerve interference, causing low energy, sleeping problems, stress, immune system dysfunction, and more. Other research is showing how posture impacts thoughts and perception, with people displaying poor posture experiencing higher levels of fear, anxiety, and depression.
SCIENTIFIC & OBJECTIVE APPROACH
Chiropractors are the only doctors to detect and remove spinal interference, subluxations, caused by poor posture (or anything else). Pain medication is not suited for long-term use and only masks symptoms while allowing them to get worse. Additionally, no pain medication can help you regain mobility. At Solution Chiropractic, we provide the BEST chiropractic care available using state-of-the-art technology (digital x-rays, posture scans, thermal scans, sEMGscans, etc.) and advanced chiropractic techniques.
Most people underestimate the impact that poor posture has on their overall health and well-being. That’s why we strive to educate our patients about this and ways to correct their posture. Our goal with every patient is to get you out of pain as quickly as possible, to correct and stabilize the CAUSE of the your symptoms, and provide tools to MAINTAIN long lasting results.
