Posture Information & Tips
Other than an injury; poor posture is probably the single largest contributor to back pain and poor overall spinal health. The way you sit, stand, sleep and walk are all part of your posture and can all contribute to the health or injury of your spine. If you consistently practice poor postural habits, it can lead to long term injury to your spine. As we’ve discussed previously, an unhealthy spine can lead to many other health problems.
At Caron Chiropractic Clinic, we will work with you to determine how your posture is affecting the health of your spine. You want to be sure that you are doing all the right things to maintain proper posture throughout the day. Are you using the right chair, the right pillow? Is your work area set up so as to avoid unnecessary bending, slouching or twisting? What can be done to ensure that you are as close to optimal posture all day long? Maintaining proper posture is probably the best thing you can do to avoid damage to your spine.
