When many of us think of good posture, our mind hits memory lane and we hear the request to “sit up straighter!” that we got so often when we were children.

But good posture is more than being polite. It’s directly connected to your wellbeing.

Posture correction: Why it matters

Bad posture is a bad habit. But it’s a bad habit that impacts your body. Many patients dealing with bad posture experience:

  • Neck, shoulder, and back pain
  • Chronic stiffness
  • Headaches
  • Weakened muscle strength
  • Digestive complications
  • Breathing issues
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Propensity toward back injuries

Posture correction and mental health

In addition to the litany of health issues connected to bad posture, it’s important to also consider mental health.

A slumped posture literally causes your body to fold in around itself. This isn’t just stifling; it also reverberates to your sense of confidence. However, when you sit tall and raise your chin high, the impact reverberates to yo impact your entire outlook.

Posture correction addresses your mental and physical slump. This form of chiropractic care will carefully retrain your body to reduce strain and build strength. It’s an investment in your body – and a departure from needless pain.
