Chiropractic Posture Assessments in Raleigh, NC
The human body functions best when proper posture and alignment is maintained. This leaves the body free to move and distribute weight evenly, allowing the spine, muscles, and joints to work together properly. If you suspect you have improper postural alignment, a chiropractor in Raleigh, NC should be consulted to perform an accurate assessment.
Postural Misalignment & Posture Assessments
When posture is out of line, pain can result and injury is more likely. This is due to the fact that the body will compensate for misalignment, putting too much pressure in certain areas. Chiropractic posture assessments are three dimensional assessments of an individual’s posture in both a standing and squatting position that determines weak points and possible areas of spinal or vertebral degeneration. Signs of improper postural and vertebral alignment include back pain, particularly in the lower back, hunched or rounded shoulders, a rounded upper back, an arched lower back, and a forward head.
Posture Assessments from Ideal Lifestyle Advocates
Genetics, stress, excessive weight, weakened muscles, footwear, and other things can contribute to poor posture and postural misalignment. Proper posture is about more than outward appearance. With proper posture and alignment, bones and joints work together properly, reducing the stress placed on ligaments. Energy is conserved preventing muscle strain. Proper posture has also been shown to reduce feelings of depression, improve digestive health, and promote confidence levels while reducing stress.
