Posture is the Window to the Spine

All your life you have been told to “stand and sit up straight.”optimal

Fortunately, your mother knew exactly what she was taking about. Unfortunately, because of the era we live in and the modern technology that has become such a huge part of our lives, this statement has become even more meaningful.┬áIt’s rare now to walk down the street, visit your local mall or for to the workplace, where someone is not o a cell phone or computer.

If posture is out of balance, then the spine is out of balance, putting unhealthy pressure upon your nervous system. As mentioned, postural stress, trauma(s), emotional stress and recreational activities can cause spinal misalignment and postural imbalance.

Your spine is the most important factor affecting your posture. In order to have optimal posture, you must have optimal spinal health and alignment of the vertebra (the spinal bones).

Our Doctors at Pickering Village Chiropractic and Massage Therapy will take special care to examine and asses you posture and spinal alignment. A comprehensive orthopedic and neurological examination will be conducted to accomplish this goal. Your posture will be examined in a physical exam and documented with a sophisticated posture online program. These results will be discussed with you on a future visit and recommendations will be made to support and correct your current postural status. Many times the damage is extensive and cannot fully be corrected. But early detection and adherence of a special plan of care is often beneficial.
