Poor Posture

Often, poor posture develops because of accidents or falls. However, poor posture usually develops from environmental factors or bad habits.

Poor posture can start a progression of symptoms in the average adult. It can start with fatigue, tightness and joint stiffness.

If you have poor posture, your muscles have to work hard just to hold you up if you have poor posture. You waste energy just moving, leaving you without the extra energy you need to feel good.

A lifetime of poor posture can cause changes in your muscles and ligaments and you may have a stiffness, tightness and painful feeling. Majority of the spine-related problems are the result of muscles changes brought on by years of bad posture.


Chiropractic


Chiropractic is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal manipulation or adjustment (World Federation of Chiropractic, 1999).
Chiropractors take an integrated and holistic approach to the health needs of their patients, considering physical, psychological and social factors. They provide care and support by reducing pain and disability and by restoring normal function to people with neuro-musculoskeletal disorders.
