Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror while performing a daily task? Something like holding the phone or sitting at your desk? If you every took the time to evaluate your body mechanics (or posture), you would likely observe a few things that put stress your body.
If you hold the phone to your ear using your shoulder – sleep on your stomach with your head and neck rotated – cross your legs all day long – then it’s no wonder why so many people need chiropractic care.
There are well over 101 things you encounter daily that cause undue stress to your body. Abnormal body postures and positions are responsible for many of the aches and pains patients develop.
It is nearly impossible to maintain perfect body posture in all of your daily activities. That’s why chiropractic care is so important in keeping you and your family healthy.
Part of maintaining healthy alignment in the body is through chiropractic adjustments. Once your body has reached stability we recommend you return periodically for wellness or maintenance adjustments. We refer to this as getting a “tune-up”.
How often your body will require a wellness adjustment is relative to your specific condition. There are many factors that contribute to your prescribed wellness plan. Some factors include your current state of health, your activity level, prior injuries, age, overall health, etc.
Our goal is to help you improve your health as best as possible. Diet, exercise, and being aware of and maintaining proper body posture, are all key elements to your overall health. We encourage you to embrace your health and do everything you can to preserve your wellness.
If you have questions about proper posture or body mechanics, contact our office and we would be delighted to give you advice.
