Stand Up Straight – The Secret To Feeling Better
Are you experiencing back pain? The problem may lie in your posture. Your posture is the secret to good body alignment and when it is off, pain may result. It is easy for your posture to slip. We get tired and we slouch. If we sit for hours at work, we can end up bowed over at the shoulders by the end of the day.
Good posture is important for many reasons. If you feel you need help with your posture, Rocky Hill Chiropractic can help. Their skilled staff will evaluate your posture and provide recommendations for making improvements.
Most chiropractors will begin with a patient’s core. A strong core is one of the secrets to maintaining good posture throughout the day. The body’s core has three pillars: shoulders, midsection, and hips.
Each of these must be aligned properly to ensure good posture. Keeping the core strong and aligned can also help prevent injury. Engaging the core means pulling back the shoulders, pulling in the abdomen and lining the hips up with the shoulders.
Good posture helps prevent neck and back problems and allows you to breathe completely and properly. Good posture also aids in digestion by providing more room for our organs. Good posture should be unconscious, although this may take time and practice.
If you wonder about your posture, there are a few signs that you may be slouching through the day. Stand sideways and look in the mirror. Are your shoulders rounded? Do your head and neck lean forward? Is your back arched and your butt stuck out?
As someone else to observe you as you walk. Do you lean to one side when you move? All of these are indications your posture may be off. There are steps you can take to improve your posture.
It is a good idea to consult with a chiropractor before beginning a posture improvement plan. Without professional advice and guidance, you may spend time trying to improve your posture only to find you’ve made it worse.

Since bad posture can start in early childhood, it is important to ensure your children stand up straight and build a strong core. Poor posture can result in pain. Fortunately, this pain can be treated by chiropractic and with effort, your posture can be improved so the pain does not return.
Be conscious of the way you stand, sit and walk. If you sit at a desk all day, take breaks and get up and stretch your spine. Walk around and loosen your back muscles so that when you sit down, you can sit straight without discomfort.
