Did you know that chiropractic care helps heal poor posture problems? It’s true! And that’s more important to your health than many people realize.
Habits of poor posture are the most common cause of office workers’ painful symptoms. However, with regular chiropractic adjustment, your pain can be relieved – and your spine will stay aligned.
Poor posture hurts more than just your neck and back. In fact, many health issues are related to a poor sitting posture. Some, like aches and pains, are unsurprising. But other health problems can seem to be unrelated to posture. You may notice discomfort in your back or neck. All your vertebrae have the potential to be pinched or compressed. This affects all areas of your body since your spine is so vital to your body parts’ healthy communication with each other.
A poorly aligned spine doesn’t work right. Or, at least, it doesn’t work at its highest level. This discrepancy between intended function and actual performance affects every part of your physical experience.
Here’s what you need to understand: loss of spinal curvature and misaligned vertebrae doesn’t always hurt. It will definitely cause symptoms of some sort. You just may not recognize them right away. That seeming lack of connection between cause and effect often confuses patients who are less acquainted with chiropractic.
Most people know that chiropractors adjust the bones of the spine and neck, among other areas. Each adjustment is meant to replace the patient’s vertebrae into healthy alignment. This reduces pressure on compressed vertebrae or pinched nerves.
Many patients find that their symptoms of pain or tingling go away after adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments can be an enjoyable experience, and patients are often immediately relieved afterward.
However, aligned bones won’t stay aligned for long if you have poor muscle tone. Your chiropractor may assign specific exercises to reinforce your back, neck, and core muscles. They need to be able to work together to keep your spine in its proper place. Follow your chiropractor’s instructions completely for the best, most long-lasting results.
If you’re experiencing symptoms that stem from poor desk posture, start to correct those habits right away. Your chiropractor can recommend the most healthful working posture. They’ll tell you about ways you can stretch and exercise during the day to maintain strength and flexibility. The more you move around, the better you’ll feel. You’ll run less risk of “locking up” in one position. And your spine will experience less pressure.
The last thing you want to do is mask symptoms! Pain relief medication isn’t always the answer. In many cases, we’ve found that chiropractic care helps heal poor posture problems to the point that pain medications are simply unnecessary. It’s far better to fix the main problem than to ineffectually treat symptoms.
