Fix Bad Posture
Sitting up straight and having good posture is more than just an aesthetic choice. Having good posture is essential in order to feel rejuvenated, prevent future issues affecting the musculoskeletal system, and as good practice. Unfortunately, many people might not know they are struggling with poor posture or might not be aware of the many treatments available.
At Body in Balance Wellness Center in Tigard, OR, we'll help you correct your poor posture and offer treatment advice so you can look and feel your best. We have trained chiropractors on our team to provide chiropractic treatments that can help correct your posture.
Do I Have Bad Posture?
It can be difficult to determine whether you have poor posture if you aren't looking directly at yourself. Some issues that indicate you have poor posture include:
- Constant upper back pain
- Neck pain that gets worse after sitting for long periods of time
- Headaches due to neck pain or even eye strain
- Visible hump or knot on your upper back
- Feeling fatigued
- Bent knees when standing
- Muscle aches in the shoulders
If you've been feeling any of these symptoms, treating them could be as simple as correcting your posture. With so many people sitting in front of computer screens or on their phone screens all day, it's no wonder hours spent online can lead to poor posture.
A chiropractor on our team will help provide lifestyle advice and treatments to help correct your posture and prevent headaches, muscle pains, and neck pain from occurring due to bad posture.
How a Chiropractor on Our Team Can Help
Your chiropractor at our practice will help determine the root cause of your poor posture by conducting a full physical exam and possibly imaging tests. These physical exams can help determine if you're suffering from a spinal misalignment that is contributing to your poor posture. Other causes of poor posture can include:
- Poor ergonomics
- Lack of upper body strength
- Prior injury
- Muscle strains
A chiropractor on our team can then help provide the best treatment to correct your posture. Chiropractic care can include manual adjustments of the spine. These adjustments gently realign and straighten the spine. Chiropractic care of the upper back may also help release tension and allow you to be free of upper back pain, while also helping to correct your posture.
