Posture is one of the two primary causes of spine misalignment – a root cause of pain and degeneration. (The other is trauma). Without correcting posture, you are unlikely to get long-term or permanent relief of pain.
In our day and age poor posture is very common. No longer are we ‘hunter-gather’ style picking berries from trees above our heads. Today we are heads down looking at our phones, bent over working and sitting staring at computer screens for long periods of time.
Changing posture is easy if you use the right comprehensive technique. At Dr Richard Chiropractic we use a multi-pronged approach.
- Specific chiropractic posture correction techniques
- Posture retraining exercises
- Postural muscle strengthening exercises
- Spinal traction
With these steps, most posture can be very substantially corrected for better appearance, better health, and better longevity. You will generally notice better posture from your first adjustment!
