A great question to start with is, what exactly is perfect posture and how do I get it? Have you ever noticed that pictures showing the “perfect posture” are always illustrations? We are all different and have compensated to balance our posture for good or bad. Another question is why is “bad posture” bad for your health and what can be done about it?
Standing or sitting in positions that put strain on your spine increase wear on the joints and soft tissues of the spine. There is an old saying, “practice makes permanent” and in this case, once the damage is done, it is permanent. On the other hand, if you do not improve your posture, your posture will continue to change you for the worse.
Chiropractic care is an important part of changing posture in addition to doing simple postural exercises. These take very little time and are powerful tools in helping change your posture, strengthen your core and improve your health.
