Maintaining Good Posture in Batavia

Chiropractic Batavia IL Woman Back Pain

At Sharratt Chiropractic, we focus on improving posture to avoid chronic back pain and other debilitating conditions. We do this through the chiropractic care we provide to patients from Batavia, St. Charles, Aurora, Geneva, IL, and surrounding areas. These individuals are usually eager to treat and prevent pain caused by poor posture. After a detailed exam and postural screening, our Batavia chiropractor, Dr. Ryan Brinka, may recommend spinal adjustment. The non-invasive technique eliminates pain and improves physical and musculoskeletal imbalances linked to improper posture.


Why Good Posture is Important in Batavia

Posture is about how you position the limbs, like your neck, torso, hands, and legs, while moving, standing, sitting, lying down, or lifting heavy objects. It is important to align the body parts correctly when doing any of these activities. However, people usually do not focus on maintaining good posture. Factors that commonly lead to poor posture include weak postural muscles, stress, wearing high heels, obesity, pregnancy, abnormally tight muscles, and poor workplace ergonomics.


Consequences of Poor Posture

There are short and long-term effects of improper posture, especially:

  • Muscle sprains, strains, or tendon tears
  • Vertebral subluxations, which can cause pain if the musculoskeletal structures put pressure on the disc or nerve
  • Bulging or herniated disc, from poor posture, when lifting heavy items or twisting while lifting to not bending the knees at the right angle
  • Lower back pain, from bending forward to sitting in an awkward position for a long time
  • Neck pain or stiff neck from bad sleep positions

Chiropractic Care Can Help Improve Posture

Routine care by our chiropractor, serving Batavia, St. Charles, Aurora, and Geneva, can help reduce the risks associated with poor posture and improve pain. This is in addition to you being mindful of how you sit, stand, bend, twist, and lift at work, home, and on the go.

Posture correction at our clinic mainly involves chiropractic adjustments, also known as spinal adjustment. The technique corrects misalignment in the spine, optimizes body mechanics, and helps improve spinal health. Realigning the vertebrae also reduces physical imbalances or gait problems that is the cause or result of:

  • Scoliosis
  • Hunchback
  • Forward head posture
  • Uneven hips or pelvis
  • Abnormal spine curvature
