About Posture Correction

We believe that structure governs function, therefore, the better your posture is, the better your body functions.

Good Posture can:

1. Conserve energy because muscles are used more efficiently;
2. Reduce stress on ligaments and joints and prevent muscle strain, overuse and pain;
3. Decrease abnormal joint wear.

Poor posture can be indicative of a problem with the spine and/or nervous system.

Our Approach to Posture Correction

Poor posture (which can be commonly seen as slouching and/or having an anterior head carriage and hunched or rounded shoulders, amongst other things) can cause strain on the muscles in the neck and increase the weight-bearing pressure on the discs. This can subsequently lead to premature ageing (arthritis) of the neck.

We always aim to improve posture by focusing on the alignment of the spine and body as a whole, providing rehabilitative exercises and stretches, and giving ergonomic advice and targeting specific muscle groups.

Contact us today to see how we can help improve and maintain your posture.

When I first visited I was very down about the back pain I was suffering to the point where I was really tearful. Alicia made me feel that it was ok to cry and it didn’t feel silly. After 4 months of treatment I am better than ever.

First Time Visitors

Relief Care

Our first goal is to relieve your symptoms as quickly as possible. The severity of your condition will determine the length of this phase. Typically, the number of visits in this phase is frequent and can involve multiple visits to the centre each week.

Rehabilitative / strengthen and corrective phase

During this phase of care, the goal is to remove the root cause of your problem and to restore optimal function. This phase of care is also dependent upon the severity of the problem. The frequency of care can still be multiple visits per week, but unlikely to be as frequent as the relief phase of care.

Wellness Care

Once your body has had the chance to heal, we believe it is important to continue with wellness care by having periodic adjustments to help prevent future problems and enable your body to continue to function at its most optimal level. Your lifestyle, health goals and practitioner’s advice will determine the frequency of care for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who should I see for posture correction?

We have helped many people with their poor posture, all of whom have commented how much their posture has improved after completing a course of Chiropractic and massage care. In order to ascertain whether we could help you, we would perform a thorough consultation and examination. Before committing to any care plan, you would know: what we have found, how we can help, how long it will take and how much it will cost. If we determine Chiropractic cannot help you, we would refer you to the person who could.

Why fix posture?

Correct posture helps to reduce pressure on muscles, ligaments, bones and nerves. The average head weighs approximately 10-12 pounds, and it’s estimated that for every inch the head is held forward in poor posture, an additional 10 pounds of weight is loaded onto the neck. Therefore, the first inch the head goes forward can double the load on the neck —and even triple the load if the head goes forward 2 inches.

Forward head carriage can lead to muscle imbalances as the body adapts and tries to find ways to hold the head to help achieve straight-ahead vision.

What causes poor posture?

There are a variety of causes. Wearing high heels, carrying bags on one shoulder, carrying children on the hip, work ergonomics, prolonged laptop, tablet and phone use, and wearing unsupportive bras amongst other things. Poor posture can also be a result of injury, disease or genetics.

What can I do to help correct my posture?
  • Take frequent breaks from any prolonged positions.
  •  Have your workstation ergonomically assessed and corrected accordingly.
  • Lift correctly.
  • Be measured for a correct fitting bra. 
  • Wear the straps of bags on both shoulders.
  • Do not carry children on one hip
  • Try not to hunch. 

Appropriate Stretches and strengthening exercises can also help. Consider consulting your local Chiropractor who can help establish normal body alignment if you are found to be misaligned.
