Chiropractors often stress the importance of posture. This is because it is proven to directly impact the rest of our health. Posture is tricky, because the immediate consequences aren't very noticeable for many people. Once someone is having severe symptoms or pain from their poos posture, it has usually progressed to irreversible damage.
Poos posture has many causes. In the modern world, we spend extended hours sitting at desks, looking down at cell phones/electronics, and these activities an cause poor posture to become a habit. Fortunately, Phase 1 & 2 of spinal degeneration are often reversible with chiropractic treatment. Chiropractic treatments are natural, drug-free and pain-free.
Poor posture can have many immediate effects on the body. These include:
