Posture Treatment: How Chiropractic Can Help Correct Poor Posture

Written By James J. Hether, D.C. on October 26, 2018

Any aches and pains can have a direct impact on your day-to-day life. But when they’re affecting your neck and back, you may feel unable to complete even the simplest of tasks. 

In many cases, poor posture is the root cause of this pain. Whether you’re slouching on your desk at work or spending all day hunched over in the garden, there are a number of reasons for the onset of these symptoms.

They may also come and go. However, over time, they can get worse, causing problems in your muscles, discs, and joints. 

If this sounds all too familiar, it’s time to discover an effective posture treatment – chiropractic care.  

Why Is It Important to Seek Posture Treatment? 

As we’ve noted, poor posture may not cause any ongoing ailments initially. Yet, if they’re left untreated, your spine is placed under an enormous amount of pressure with anatomical changes taking place. 

The result?

Excruciating pain – as your blood vessels and nerves are restricted. 

Here are some key signs that poor posture could be causing your pain: 

  • Pain that radiates from your neck and down your back 
  • Pain that lessens when you move around as you sit or stand 
  • Neck or back pain that gets worse after you’ve done something for several hours, e.g. weeding in the garden
  • Sudden pain that coincides with a new chair at work, a new job, or a new vehicle 

How Can Chiropractic Help? 

Don’t ignore any of these signs and symptoms and seek the advice of your local chiropractor in DeLand. While you may be concerned about the pain you’re in, it’s often treatable and won’t be a sign of an underlying condition. 

To find out exactly what is causing the pain and discomfort you’re experiencing, your chiropractor will conduct a physical examination during your initial consultation. They will also talk through your symptoms and your medical history to gain a thorough understanding of you, your lifestyle, and overall health. 

Finally, to confirm their thoughts, they may carry out a few further diagnostic tests, e.g. X-rays. 

Once they know your symptoms are caused by poor posture, they’ll put together a tailored treatment plan.

This may include manual adjustments that help ease those restricted joints and eradicate any tension in your back. They may also correct any misalignments in your spine that may be putting pressure on your nerves. 

To complement this, you’ll also be given home exercises and advice on how to improve your posture to ensure your recovery is quick, pain-free, and ongoing.
