Walking Tall: What A Good Posture Means For Your Overall Health

November 28, 2022

Good posture is vital for supporting and maintaining good health. Why? Because when your spine is properly aligned, it’s providing the support and balance you need to perform myriad everyday tasks without overtaxing your back and neck. It’s also an important element in the way we feel about ourselves and the way others see us. Our experienced chiropractor at Springfield Chiropractic Clinic places great importance on restoring and maintaining posture through natural, hands-on techniques that have been successfully achieving overall wellness for many years.

Think of all the functions that are affected by our posture. Walking, sitting or lying down, and standing, all require your joints, muscles and ligaments to work in harmony. If something’s out of alignment, there’s added stress on the hips, back and neck that can lead to permanent damage. Conditions like a head forward position, hunched-over back, uneven pelvis and hips, and a curvature of the spine known as scoliosis can all develop when your posture is out of whack. 

What we do as chiropractors is to perform a thorough assessment of any imbalances that may be affecting your posture, taking into consideration your entire body, not just the spine and neck. We will then use a variety of hands-on adjustments to gently coax stiff joints and muscles into their proper functions. This will not only reduce pain and soreness, but stimulates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Ongoing chiropractic treatment will help restore the so-called “neutral spine” that supports optimal posture and overall health and comfort.

Patients who have come to our chiropractor at Springfield Chiropractic Clinic complaining of slouched posture, neck pain, lower back soreness, hunched back, and trouble walking, have achieved remarkable results through our natural, drug-free treatments. Walking tall has tremendous benefits to both our health and our self-confidence. Please contact our office today to schedule an assessment.
