Posture and Motion Maintain the Brain

The link between posture and brain function

So many people treat posture indifferently, which is really a shame when you consider that it is actually a make-or-break part of spinal health. One thing to consider is the link between posture and brain function, which is borne out by a growing wealth of clinical findings. Besides increasing pressure on your spine, reducing lung function, and impairing your organs, poor posture can also hamper brain function. Poor posture is linked to issues including: 

  • Self-esteem
  • Focus and attention
  • Rate of speech
  • Stress levels
  • Mental performance
  • Chronic pain
  • Memory response

As chiropractors, we focus on limiting the damage on the physical side of things, which we know will have a knock-on effect on the mental side. Here’s how our approach to posture works:

Poor posture translates to limited mobility

And limited mobility can only slow us down, contributing to spinal degeneration, pain, and dysfunction. Our role is to help identify and resolve issues that stem from poor posture including spinal misalignment, muscular imbalance, nerve compression, trigger points, and tension. By alleviating the physical discomfort that results from poor posture, we can help you work on increasing awareness of posture’s role in your life. At our office in Houston, we are posture experts and we want to help you turn posture from a negative influence into a positive one. Give our office a call to schedule an appointment today.
