Get working on your POSTURE
Good Posture – starts here
When new patients visit our office, we get them to download this posture sheet called : Get working on your POSTURE.
Getting the best results is important for us and our practice members. But nothing changes if nothing changes.
A thorough assessment
After your chiropractor discusses your current spinal health concerns, the next step is to find out if and how chiropractic can help. A thorough, in depth assessment helps us to determine how well the spine is moving and how your posture compares to the neutral. Your chiropractor will let you know if they feel they can help and may refer you out for X-rays.
Once your chiropractor has gathered all your spinal health test results, they will sit you down and discuss with you the findings and the their best recommendation for care. These recommendations will include a ‘get working on your posture’ sheet on the second or third visit, as well as specific home exercises, corrective home orthotics and an in office sleep posture assessment, over subsequent visits.
Having more awareness around posture is one of the keys to your spinal health improving beyond purely symptom relief. We start with simple reminders around::
- forward head posture
- sideways posture
- sleep posture
- sitting and standing posture
With all new habits in our lives, we know that the key to getting the best outcome is to have reminders around us. This may look like a Post-it on your computer to get up often or setting regular reminders to get up and move on your phone.
Repetition is the key
There’s no easy way to get your spine healthy again. It does take time, an increase in your body awareness and repetition of these good habits. Over time, like any new habit, you won’t have to think about it – all these great habits around your posture will be normal and just a part of your normal daily life.
