Postural Analysis and Correction at Sharratt Chiropractic
Did your mother ever tell you to sit or stand up straight? Your posture affects more than just your appearance and sense of self-confidence. It also has a direct impact on your musculoskeletal function and nervous system comfort. If your health has gone into a slump to match your spinal alignment, it's time to seek non-invasive treatment that can correct your situation. Our chiropractor at Sharratt Chiropractic is happy to provide such services for individuals throughout Batavia, St. Charles, Aurora, and Geneva.
Poor Posture's Causes and Effects
You can develop (or even be born with) less-than-optimal posture without realizing it. Ideally, your spinal alignment and nervous system work together to keep you balanced and symmetrical in your stance, gait, and movements, but subtle deviations that disrupt the entire system can creep in for a variety of reasons. Some of these issues may be related to chronic degenerative conditions, such as bulging discs or spondylolisthesis, altering the spine's natural curve just enough to place nerves under continuous strain. Even a slight spinal misalignment can be enough to make normal posture impossible to achieve or maintain. An acute injury that jolts joints out of position can also alter your posture. Either way, an uncorrected postural imbalance can lead to chronic pain and stiffness.
The ergonomics of your daily routine can also affect your posture. If you're constantly staring down at your smartphone screen or a monitor that's positioned too low, for instance, the resulting head droop can lead to a painful condition known as text neck. If your desk or keyboard is too low, you may be hunched over for hours at a time, placing your spine in an unnatural position, and priming you for chronic back pain.
Our Chiropractor Can Help you Straighten Out Your Postural Issues
If you suspect that your posture is sabotaging your health, come to Sharratt Chiropractic. Our Batavia chiropractor can perform a detailed postural analysis to understand how your body is distributing its weight, both in motion and standing still. Analysis of your spinal alignment and curvature can reveal any abnormalities that are affecting your posture.
A number of safe, natural techniques can be employed to help you re-establish proper posture. Chiropractic adjustments may be necessary to correct spinal imbalances. Corrective exercises can strengthen weak back or neck muscles. We may also provide ergonomic and lifestyle counseling to help create a road map toward a lifetime of better posture.
