Posture is one of the fastest ways to start boosting your health this new year
But it is not as easy as say, drinking water. Changing your posture for the better takes a concerted effort betweeen body and mind. Every moment will be a challenge as you fight to maintain your body in an upright, low-pressure position. It will take the cultivation of a certain set of muscles and the development of mental discipline to catch yourself when you slouch and slump. But the upside is too large to ignore- improving posture sets the foundation for spinal wellness that impacts every part of your waking and sleeping life. This new year, let’s make better posture a priority.
Why posture is one of the first things we work on at Espinosa Family Chiropractic
Without good posture, much of the work we put in when correcting spinal misalignment and reducing back pain can become undone. As sitting is already the position that loads the spine with the most stress, poor posture while sitting intensifies the ill-effect. Posture is therefore a critical piece of the foundation for spinal wellness that we seek to instill in all our patients at Espinosa Family Chiropractic. We work with you to understand your lifestyle and determine the challenges that you face with posture throughout the day. Whether you are sitting all day, standing constantly, or somewhere in between, there is almost certainly room for improvement in the way you carry yourself.
Good posture starts with awareness
Everyone knows to sit up straight but few of us heed this advice until the pain has already set in. What’s more, most of our bodies are ill-equipped to maintain good posture for long periods of time because the muscles simply aren’t developed. We can help you in both of these shortcomings- it is an essential part of what we do at our office in Sacramento. Every patient we see receives a physical examination that includes postural analysis. If you are looking to add postural awareness and effectiveness into your life this new year, give our office a call to schedule an appointment today.
