Stand up Straight!! Good Posture prevents pain.

There are many ways to develop bad posture. For example; a sedentary lifestyle, sitting at a desk, working on a computer, or using a smart phone. Some of us have poor posture do not know how to correct it. Remember when your parents to you to stand up straight? They were right!!! Good posture is important for your health, your mood, and how others perceive you. Good posture can even help prevent age related conditions and allow your vital organs plenty of room to function.

Sometimes traumatic events can impact your posture. For example, if you got hurt in a car accident your body might compensate by leaning to one side or cause you to hunch over in an effort to relieve the pain and discomfort. Whatever the case, poor posture can cause back pain, headaches, increased risk of injury, decreased flexibility, and decreased mobility. It can actually cause you to age much faster. The good news is, in most cases even those with very poor posture can turn it around and stand a little taller. Chiropractic care has shown to help many people regain their youthful, straight, healthy posture that they’ve lost.
