Chiropractic Care for Posture Correction: Stand Tall and Pain-Free

Posture Correction

Have you noticed pain in your neck or shoulders after a long day at work? Do you struggle with persistent lower back pain, although you’re not sure why? There’s a good chance your posture may be to blame–but Hernandez Therapy offers chiropractic care for posture to help you find relief!

While most people have a vague sense that maintaining proper posture is important, fewer people understand why that is. Many assume it’s mostly appearance-related. While it’s true that slouching and rounded shoulders aren’t the best look, the reality is that maintaining proper posture plays a significant role in your overall health and well-being.

Let’s go back to these persistent aches and pains. Many of them stem from misalignments in your posture, especially while sitting. A misaligned spine makes the muscles, tendons, and ligaments throughout the body work harder than they need to, which can cause imbalances and impairments that lead to lingering pain.

As chiropractors, we deeply understand the relationship between your spine and the rest of your body. In fact, chiropractic care is centered around the idea that correcting misalignments in the spine can lead to improved health and wellness–which is why we’ll help you align your spine!

How Chiropractic Care Can Help with Posture Correction

When you visit Hernandez Therapy for the first time, our team will take the time to perform a comprehensive evaluation of your spine and overall posture–not just while standing but also while sitting and moving around. We’ll use these observations to form the basis of your customized treatment plan.

A big part of your plan will likely involve postural corrections. This is much more in-depth than simply telling you to stand up straight. Instead, we’ll show you techniques for maintaining awareness of your spine’s alignment as you move throughout your day–whether you’re working at your desk, playing with your kids, or running errands.

We’ll help you discover what posture “feels” like when you’re in various positions and may suggest some ergonomic adjustments to your workspace to help alleviate extra stress. We can also develop strategies for taking breaks from prolonged posture (i.e., sitting at an office job), as changing your posture is as important as keeping your spine in alignment.

In addition to working with you on postural corrections, we might utilize some additional techniques to help make maintaining proper posture easier for you:

  • Spinal adjustments. This technique involves sharply thrusting your spine through its current range of motion, helping to improve mobility and reduce pain.
  • Corrective exercises. Slouching and other improper postures can weaken your core muscles, which wrap and support your spine. Strengthening them makes maintaining proper posture easier (and helps reduce pain in the long term). We can also suggest exercises to strengthen other weak or imbalanced areas (such as your neck and shoulders).
