Poor Posture

A lot of people struggle with this these days, and there are a number of things that we could be doing to improve our posture.

We know posture doesn't just create back pain, neck pain, and headaches; it can also contribute to these conditions.

Poor posture can also affect the organs.

Older people who are cathartic, where they're hunched forward, have an increase in mortality for all causes of death, so there is a link between posture and health.

How To Improve Posture

We want to ensure we do everything possible to keep our posture solid. So the first thing is trying to limit computer and device time.

Now, if you look at people on our devices, sometimes you're looking down like this, or if they're not a computer, they're a slogan forward.

Hence, sitting or using devices can encourage poor posture, so being mindful of your time on them can help your postural muscles start to work.

The other thing is, if you have a desk or computer job, you need to be at your computer.

Consider entering a sit-stand desk into that environment because what that does is it allows you to have the option to either sit or stand throughout the day, and having a variation of those two things can help stimulate, so I have a lot of standing desks in my office when I'm seeing patients, so when I'm working on a computer, I can be here, I can be kind of going side to side, I can be stimulating my muscles and my brain, instead of just sitting there and allowing my body to slouch over time, it doesn't matter, you can be the best athlete in the world if you are sitting for hours.

Eventually, your postural muscles just shut off, and we get into this slumped posture.

If we have a computer in front of us, we start focusing on that and bringing ourselves forward, and this creates a lot of postural stress, so having sit-stand desks is good, even for people who have that.

If they want to take it another step, you consider getting a wobble board, which you can stand on while you're working, which kind of creates a new stimulation of balance and receptors from the joints and the muscles to help stimulate your brain and keep you more alert, too.

So this is a great option for people who have that desk job.

The other thing is regular exercise, especially if you have a sedentary job or work at a desk.

You need to exercise regularly, stimulating your postural and back muscles.

These are what hold you up, so you must exercise if you want your posture to improve.

Otherwise, if those muscles are not working, we start to slouch.

So, regular exercise is crucial, and with chiropractic care, people who have had chronic postural issues long-term should consider introducing regular chiropractic care to their routine.

We will help mobilize the joints in the spine to improve movement, which will help when you start doing these other things.

Having the spine move properly and the nerve system fire correctly will help these other areas and, hopefully, improve your posture.
