Poor Posture

Getting to the root cause of poor posture

Not only is poor posture unsightly and aesthetically unpleasing, it can wreak havoc on our health and well-being. It can impact our breathing, our energy, and increase our level of pain. Research even shows how an increase in our upper back curvature called a thoracic hyperkyphosis, or more commonly known as a “hunchback,” can decrease our immune system and shorten our life span.

With the amount of time we spend driving, on public transportation, sitting at school and work, and using technology like phones, tablets, PCs, and laptops, this condition of “hunchback” is reaching new levels. No one is immune to it in today’s day and age.

Just look around you at the adults and kids. I guarantee you see many of them slouched over a computer or a phone. Think about what this has done to their bodies after spending hours and hours per day over a period of years and years. This condition must be addressed before the damage is permanent.

I used to have a lot of pain around my hip, knees and feet. I was not able to do the sports that I wanted and I really do not want to sit all the time. I had gone to other chiropractors, but didn’t see much improvement but only more pains. I also had insomnia and indigestion health issues. And hence feeling tired, stiff and lack of energy most parts of the days. I also gained a lot of weight and that brought my morality down big time.

My pain has gone down by 90%. I could stand up straight, walk well and do all the sports that I wanted to. I feel my hips and feet are much stronger and I could also do all the work around me all by myself with less assistance from family and friends. My sleep has improved from 3 hours a night to 7 hours a night. This is a huge improvement after so many years. I feel all so relaxed and rested. My digestion issues has improved too. My family and friends are very happy to see my progress. Thank you so much for giving my life back.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I fix my own posture?

There are many things you can do to improve your own posture. Yoga, Pilates, stretching, foam rolling, and just general awareness can be helpful, but if your poor posture is due to a structural shift in the spine, it has to be addressed by a structural chiropractor. Those other things can be helpful, but they cannot create the specific force and vector needed to correct a structural shift. Corrective chiropractic care combined with those things can be a very powerful combination.

Why do I find it so hard to sit and stand up straight?

Over time our bodies break down and deform into new abnormal positions if we are not careful. As a child or young adult, it might have been easy to stand and sit up straight, but as you get older those bones, ligaments, and other connective tissue deform into new unhealthy positions and it becomes harder to address. This is why you should always start with an evaluation by a chiropractor that focuses on structural correction.

Is my poor posture correctable?

Most of the time it is correctable. There might be some barriers to correction such as if you have significant degeneration, osteoporosis, or compression fractures in the spine, but there are almost always areas we can work on and improve. By correcting the abnormal shifts in the spine and working on imbalances, it can have a profound effect on your health and wellbeing. The key is progress and not perfection.

What if I do not correct my poor posture?

Your posture is the window to your spine. If you neglect your posture and it continues to break down, you might never be able to get it back. On top of that, poor posture and structural alignment can impact your breathing, your stress levels, and create accelerated aging. Optimal alignment is a very important part of optimizing our health span and lifespan.
