Corrective Chiropractic: Correlation Between Posture and Health

There is mounting evidence that poor posture is attributing to a diminished quality of life.

If you think about it, you rarely see people with poor posture competing in the Olympics or running around in the park chasing footballs. On the same token, you don’t see too many people with great posture bedridden, suffering from chronic migraines.

That’s because the spine’s natural ‘S’ shaped curve enables the brain, spinal cord, and nerves to transmit vital nerve energy to the rest of the body freely, and without any interference.

Unfortunately that isn’t the case with most people.

If you have ever suffered tingling or numbness in your arms or legs, fatigue in the middle of the day, too many bouts with the cold/flu, or pain in your joints for no apparent reason, you may know first-hand just how your posture can affect the way your body functions.

Nerve interference occurs as a result of your spine shifting out of place – distorting the natural ‘S’ shaped curve, and putting unnecessary pressure on the delicate nerves that bring life to our bodies.

Misalignments occur as a result of poor postural habits, lifestyle choices, car accidents, or sports injuries. If left untreated, gravity will exacerbate these misalignments and cause dysfunction and disease in your vital organs.

Chiropractors specializing in Chiropractic BioPhysics aim to restore your spine back to its natural ‘S’ shaped curve and restore normal nerve flow to the rest of your body.
