Many people struggle with poor posture. It may not seem like a big deal, but when you’re living your life with hunched shoulders, it can have a negative impact on your quality of life. This is especially true as you get older. If you don’t improve your posture, it can lead to chronic pain and decreased mobilization. However, that being said, all is not lost. It is never too late to start working on your posture. Revelation Chiropractic is here to talk about how chiropractic care can help you improve your posture.
Why is Holding Good Posture Hard?
There are some people that have limitations that are beyond their control and lead to poor posture. However, many people find that it is much easier to have poor posture than it is to have good posture and somewhat allow it to happen. Even though they may not be aware that they are doing so. Most people that have poor posture have what is known as positional causes for poor posture. Here are some of the most common reasons that people don’t have the right posture.
– Excessive weight
– Bad posture habits that happen as a result of laziness
– Weakness is the core muscles
– Muscle imbalance or spasm
– Self-esteem issues that lead to slouching
– Pain in certain areas that often leads to poor posture
– Over-reliance on a chair that isn’t ergonomic
– Degenerative conditions
Can Poor Posture Cause Permanent Damage?
When you are young, it may seem like it is no big deal to slouch here and there. However, over the course of time, you will start to see that having poor posture can have consequences. You may start to have chronic pain that you may attribute to getting old when it all reality, it comes from living for years with bad posture. Our spines are built to absorb shock, but bad posture can slowly deteriorate this natural ability, putting your body at risk for more serious injury in the future. Some other consequences may include:
– Undue stress on your pelvis
– Balance issues with your back, neck, hips and knees
