Posture Improvement

Improve Your Posture with the Help of Our Chiropractor

Good posture is integral to your overall health but maintaining good posture can be a bit of a challenge. Between work, driving, fatigue, and typical household tasks, there are many issues that can negatively impact your spine’s natural shape. However, there are ways you can make a positive change, such as those shared by the team at Advanced Family Chiropractic & Rehabilitation serving Imperial, MO, below.

Tips for Posture Improvement

The following are some effective ways to start improving your posture immediately.

Understand Proper Posture

It’s hard to achieve better posture if you don’t know what proper posture is. In short, your shoulders should be rolled back, there should be a slight curve in your lower back, and tuck your stomach in. If you’re standing, your knees should bend slightly, your feet should be about shoulder-width apart, and your weight should mostly be on the balls of your feet.

Posture Checks

Until you can automatically recognize that your posture is poor, it’s a good idea to set a timer on your phone. About every hour, stop, check, and correct any issues.

Be Active

Strengthening your spinal column through exercise is a great way to improve your posture. While exercise itself is beneficial, chiropractic care can use a combination of strengthening and stretching exercises that can provide many advantages for your spine and overall health.

Be Smart in Your Workspace

It can be difficult to maintain proper posture at any job, as they can all take a toll on your body. Jobs involving manual labor can include a great deal of lifting and twisting. These movements can cause injuries in the back, which can impact how you move and hold up your body.

Sitting at a desk for hours at a time can result in its own set of problems. It becomes easy to slouch, especially when your office is not set up with ergonomics in mind. In order to improve your posture at work, you’ll need to be proactive about improving your workspace and habits.

Visit Our Chiropractor for Chiropractic Care

Regular visits to your chiropractor can also help. Through chiropractic adjustments and other forms of treatment, injuries or obstructions impacting your posture can be addressed. You can also receive personalized recommendations for exercises and ways to help improve your habits to support better posture.
