Typically when we hear about good posture we think of a parent reminding a child to sit up straight, but posture is much more than that. Did you know...
- Your posture has a profound effect on the function of your nervous and musculoskeletal systems. When those systems are functioning well, you will enjoy better overall health.
- These days, it seems that almost everyone uses a computer and communicates through texting. Repetitive tasks like texting and computer work result in postural imbalances and pain.
- Many arthritic and degenerative joint conditions are caused or aggravated by postural imbalances.
- Nerve impulses can be delayed or inhibited by postural imbalances.
Often postural imbalances are caused by subluxation (spinal misalignments).
With such vital functions being affected by your posture, it is wise to take an active role in gaining and maintaining good posture. Visiting a chiropractor is a great first step. Chiropractors are postural experts that correct spinal subluxations, resulting in improved posture and health.
