Importance of Proper Posture and Posture Correction
Your friends here at NYC’s West Side Comprehensive Chiropractic want to remind you that, as it pertains to good physical and mental health, the importance of good posture is foundationally important. It is widely known that a healthy lifestyle involves conscious and strategic management of diet, sleep, and exercise. However, the importance of posture is not as widely understood. So, we’re going to cover that subject today.
Good posture supports well aligned bones particularly the spine so that the tension within muscles and ligaments is evenly distributed. Good posture ensures the body parts are properly in place with minimal stress. For this reason, here at West Side Comprehensive Chiropractic, we place a high emphasis on the importance of having a good posture.
Our posture assessment and treatment starts with an initial examination. We thoroughly assess your posture, identify problem areas, and work together to create a custom corrective plan of action. Your treatment plan will involve targeted exercises designed to strengthen your core postural muscles. We’ll consult you on the proper way to sit, stand, and lie.
We measure your progress. We’ll photograph your current posture and alignment so we can track progress. Using advanced technology, we’ll revisit your initial photograph to measure your progress. But the most important measure will be the noticeable difference in your overall health. You will systematically reduce stress on ligaments and feel less pain. Your muscles will work more efficiently and will have more energy.
