Poor Posture

Posture is fast becoming the key focus for health and wellness in our society and for good reason. Our lifestyle and work conditions over the past decades have seen our posture decay quickly and it is contributing to most of the physical health issues we see today, especially with the slow and progress aches and pains developing in bodies with no obvious injury or starting point.

What causes poor posture?

Poor posture is usually a result of slow, progressive changes in the alignment of your body through often small stresses over time. These stresses lead to the body having to compensate, and each compensation can slowly lead to large changes in overall bony alignment and thus poor posture.

The more the body has to compensate the less room it has to move freely, and over time will likely start to become rigid, or feel stiff in certain areas. This will also lead to aches and pains as well as many other body health problems.

Contributing factors that can lead to deterioration of posture

  • Sitting position

  • Sleeping position

  • Footwear

  • Trauma (sports injuries, car accidents etc)

  • Emotional stress

How can Absolute Chiropractic help you with your posture?

Pain medications are commonly used to deal with pains that arise from poor posture, such as neck pain or a sore lower back, but unfortunately this approach only masks the symptoms rather than fix the underlying cause.

Our focus is correcting the cause of your posture, so you can experience lasting results and great health, all without the nasty side effects of long-term pain medication use.

We do this through improving your spinal alignment and posture, using a gentle, non-invasive chiropractic technique.
