Q & A

What is posture correction?

Poor posture can lead to chronic and acute pain in the back and elsewhere in your body, so learning and using good posture is important for your long-term wellness. Through posture correction, your chiropractor can help you achieve good posture. 


Good posture involves balancing your body weight while causing minimal muscle strain to hold you upward. It also keeps your vertebrae and other bones in your body in the best possible alignment. 


Your chiropractor at Spinal Correction Centers evaluates your current posture and any pain or stiffness you experience that might be related. Then, they develop a posture correction plan just for you. With your dedication, the results of chiropractic posture correction can be permanent. 

What are the possible complications of having poor posture?

Having poor posture is extremely common. Slouching often feels easier and more like a natural, at-rest position while standing or sitting. 


Sometimes poor posture develops out of habit, but it can also result from injuries, muscle tension, muscle weakness, and genetics. 


Continuing to maintain poor posture can lead to aches and pains as well as issues like:


  • Increased joint degeneration
  • Nerve compression
  • Ligament sprains
  • Overuse injuries
  • Heart problems (atrial fib and congestive heart failure)
  • Breathing problems
  • Swallowing difficulties


Improving your posture can also help you conserve energy, so you don’t feel as tired or fatigued throughout the day. 

How does posture correction work?

When you visit Spinal Correction Centers for posture correction, your chiropractor may use one or more evidence-based strategies designed to help you be more conscious of the position of your back. Your individualized posture correction care plan might involve:


  • Chiropractic structural correction
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Stretching and rehabilitation
  • Muscle relaxation
  • Traction


Your chiropractor also talks to you about ways you can improve your posture and maintain your results in your personal life, such as reducing the time you spend on your phone or computer, and ergonomic changes at home, work, and in the car


You may also benefit from making some general healthy lifestyle changes. These might include adjusting your diet, exercising more consistently, and stretching at home.
