The Importance of Posture

Do you find yourself sitting hunched over your desk or looking down on your digital devices? It’s no surprise that many people suffer from poor posture, which can cause balance problems, breathing difficulties, headaches and other adverse effects. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to improve your posture.

Mind Your Ergonomics

It’s important to make changes to your workspace, such as using an ergonomic chair. Poor posture can affect the entire body, so if posture is off, the whole spine is off. Make sure your ankle is 90 degrees to your shin, 90 degrees to your thigh, and 90 degrees to your spine.

Avoid ‘Tech Neck’

When looking at the phone, instead of looking down, keep your neck straight and extend your arms. Your eye should be the same level as the screen.

Pay Attention to Posture

Often we forget about posture and start leaning more forward. Instead of doing that, consider placing a small pillow behind your neck. If you start looking forward and the pillow falls, it reminds you to sit up straighter. When you sit in the car, sit as straight as possible and fix the mirror in front of you.

Get Adjusted

Coming in for regular chiropractic care can help keep your spine aligned and posture perfected. Remember, though, that you need to practice good posture and can’t just rely on chiropractic care. “If patients don’t work on their posture other than what I’m doing in the office, it’s not going to help,” said Dr. Owais.

The good news is that a combination of chiropractic care and practicing good posture daily can not only help you look better, but also experience many health benefits.
