Hey Doc, How's My Posture? 5 Steps to Perfect Posture.

Posture---SmallerThis is a question, which I am asked all the time in practice or even out in public.  That, or what are some things I can do to improve my posture?   The following list is a sequence of different steps to help improve your posture.  It provides a simple, yet very effective check point system to ensure your spine is in a neutral, stable position!

 5 Steps to Better Posture:

 1- Grab the ground with your feet.  This is done by pushing your feet into the ground while “pushing” your toes outward and “grabbing” the ground.

 2- Squeeze your cheeks.  You want to squeeze your “cheeks” together in order to help tilt your pelvis backwards.

 3- Take a deep breath in.  As you let your air out, tighten your core and align your upper body over the hips/pelvis.

 4- Pull your shoulders back and rotate your arms outward.

 5- Bring your head back so your ears are in line with your shoulders.

This will take some time in order to retrain your body to remain in a proper, neutral, stable position.  It took years for you posture to become poor, so it will take a little bit of time in order to help correct it.  Keep up with it, and don’t get frustrated!

Chiropractic adjustments can aid in making sure the biomechanics and joints of the spine are moving freely and correctly to help speed up this process!

If you or someone you know has any questions or concerns, we would invite you/them to stop by the office for a spinal health check and posture evaluation!
