Posture is the position of the body that you have while you stand, sit and lay down. Good posture, is also referred to as neutral spine has a number of health benefits, which include avoiding back injuries. Chiropractic care can help improve and maintain good, healthy posture.
So why is posture important?
Although you may think that appearance is the only good benefit of having good posture, this is not the case. Good posture does look good, but other benefits of good posture including: maintaining correct alignment of bones and joints, reducing stress on ligaments, minimizing risk of injury; preventing muscle strain, overuse and pain; conserving energy as muscles are used more efficiently; and decrease abnormal joint wear.
As these are proving side effects, there has been on-going research that suggest that poor posture may increase feelings of depression, affect your digestive tract and also influence confidence and stress levels.
