Why we put posture first
Posture underpins everything we do at Bay Area Spine Care Office. It´s role in wellness is essential and as such, your posture is indicative of your spinal health. That´s why every new person we meet receives a full physical examination that evaluates:
- Range of motion
Static postural analysis helps us determine your postural shortcomings including deviations and compensations in the musculature which can contribute to spinal degeneration and pain. Once we have a clear picture of how your posture is influencing your spinal health, we tailor it down to your particular lifestyle: are you seated most of the day, working at a computer; are you on your feet, bending over frequently? Your lifestyle determines your posture, yes; but your posture determines how you feel as a result of your lifestyle.
Improving posture with the help of your Alameda chiropractor
Make 2018 the year that you take control of your body’s ability to feel well. Better posture prevents injury, mitigates back pain and supports your spine so that you can stay upright long into life. Our action plan includes:
- Postural education: the mechanics of posture and how they fit into your lifestyle.
- Development of the proper muscles: it is futile to learn good posture without a proper set of supporting muscles. This is because the core stabilizing muscles make maintaining good posture easier.
- Postural awareness: when is your posture letting you down; when and how to correct.
We want to show you how posture fits into a preventative healthcare lifestyle. Like chiropractic, better posture is easily integrated into a holistic health plan that prevents illness and injury.
