Anytown Chiropractic Your Mother Was Right

I have noticed that many Salt Lake City chiropractic patients did not listen to their mothers when they were commanded to ‘Stand up straight!’ as children.

As an experienced Family Chiropractors” href=”http://mychiropractorblog.com/about/” target=”_blank”>Anytown chiropractor, I can’t help noticing how people hold their bodies as they walk, sit, and move. I see men driving down Utah freeways with their backs hunched over the steering wheel. I treat Provo women who suffer back pain from years of wearing high heels that pitch their spines too far forward. I treat elderly St. George people who put unnecessary strain on their necks because of the way they sit.

Your posture when walking, sitting, and standing not only communicates confidence (or lack thereof), it is directly related to overall health.

The following posture facts are from the American Chiropractic Association:

Good posture helps us stand, walk, sit, and lie in positions that place the least strain on supporting muscles and ligaments during movement and weight-bearing activities.
Correct posture helps us keep bones and joints in correct alignment so that our muscles are used correctly, decreasing the abnormal wearing of joint surfaces that could result in degenerative arthritis and joint pain.
Correct posture reduces the stress on the ligaments holding the spinal joints together, minimizing the likelihood of injury.
Correct posture allows muscles to work more efficiently, allowing the body to use less energy and, therefore, preventing muscle fatigue.
Correct posture helps prevent muscle strain, overuse disorders, and even back and muscular pain.
Correct posture allows muscles to work more efficiently, allowing the body to use less energy and, therefore, preventing muscle fatigue.

If you have developed physical problems from poor posture, I can help. After evaluating your alignment and movement patterns, I will design a posture-correction plan that involves specific exercises to strengthen muscles and guidance on how to stand, sit, and lie in the proper positions. With consistent, focused effort, you can correct your posture.

If you know you have poor posture but have not yet noticed problems, now is the time to correct it. You may avoid debilitating conditions if you correct your posture now.
