Common Posture Problems & Chiropractic Killeen

by Administrator 11. December 2013 19:31

Poor posture is indicative of a problem in the spine, and hence in the nervous system. The chiropractic school of thought lays keen emphasis on correct posture, and has a wide range of non-invasive techniques that can be used to correct common posture problems. The key indicators of poor posture are slouching and a forward head posture. This interferes with lymphatic drainage in the neck, leading to strain on the posterior neck muscles. This can result in premature arthritis of the neck through excessive weight bearing on the discs.

The Corrective Chiropractic & Wellness clinic located in Harker Heights provides high quality chiropractic care to patients with posture problems. Our chiropractors, Dr. Jason Degenhardt, D.C. and Dr. Shane Isdale, D.C. are well trained and highly experienced, ensuring that you get the highest level of chiropractic care to restore normal posture and help you attain optimal wellness.

Some of the most common causes of posture problems include car accidents, excessive use of computers, loss of bone density, and poor sleep habits. Common posture problems include:

  • Hunchback- This refers to the upper back being excessively curved, and is usually noticed in people who have a poor sitting position especially while doing computer work.
  • Rounded shoulders- This can be caused by poor sitting posture or an imbalanced exercise routine.
  • Loss of normal curvature in the neck- This is commonly seen in people who are involved in automobile accidents, which cause the head to be whipped back and forth.
  • Forward tilt of the pelvis- This is associated with anterior weight bearing, which in turn leads to an increase in the lumbar curvature, and muscle weakness. Patients with this posture disorder experience chronic lower back pain, muscle pain, leg weakness, circulation problems in the lower extremities, and several other complaints.

The chiropractors at the Corrective Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic will start by thoroughly analyzing your posture and spinal problems, to determine the extent of damage that has occurred. This includes an analysis of the spinal curvature and alignment, in order to determine the problems that are contributing to the abnormal postural pattern. Once the subluxations leading to the postural abnormalities are identified, these can be easily corrected through spinal decompression and chiropractic manipulations, which restore normal curvature to the spine.
