Chiropractic Care for Poor Posture
You may not think much about your posture, but neglecting your posture can lead to health issues. Poor posture can cause issues with your muscles and ligaments, joints, digestion, and even mood and amount of energy. It's easy to slouch on the sofa, in the office chair, car seat, or even while walking. When using cellphones, laptops, and other digital devices, many people slouch to view the screens. Correcting your posture may be difficult, but chiropractic care can help. At Jacksonville Chiropractic in Jacksonville, NC, our chiropractor provides natural methods to alleviate pain from poor posture. We will help you improve your posture as well.
How Poor Posture Affects Your Health
Standing or sitting up straight sounds simple, but it is difficult to do consistently. If your body is used to slouching, your muscles have already begun to weaken. You may walk with hunched over shoulders and a rounded upper back. As you age, you may notice your back or neck and shoulders hurting more frequently. This pain will continue to worsen if you do not correct your posture.
How Our Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractor knows how important posture is to your overall health. Our team is here to help you fix problems with your posture and your spine.
When you first visit us, our chiropractor will ask questions about your lifestyle and medical history. We will also perform a physical exam to look for any underlying health conditions. Part of this exam includes looking at your current posture. Our chiropractor will look at your posture from all angles to note where there are symmetry issues, such as your shoulders being uneven. After this, we will create a personalized treatment plan for you.
Our chiropractor often uses adjustments to alleviate pain from poor posture. By realigning your spine, we can alleviate tension and pressure in the back and neck. These adjustments will also alleviate pain from pinched nerves and muscle tension. We also offer spinal decompression, which involves gently stretching the spine to allow discs to move back into place.
Depending on your condition, our chiropractor may also use massage therapy, laser therapy, spinal traction, and more. After treatment, our chiropractor will work with you on improving your posture so you can avoid recurring pain.
