Your local Tempe chiropractor is able to offer a range of services, not least of which is the ability to help alleviate the symptoms associated with bad posture. Improper posture habits can have far reaching negative effects up your overall spinal health as it places strain on the supportive muscle structures. Sufferers may experience pain and tension in their upper and lower spine, in their neck and shoulder region and may even suffer from headaches.

The bad habit of improper posture is easily developed due to lifestyle habits like slouching as you sit in a chair, in front of your computer screen or while watching television. Prolonged poor posture becomes an ingrained habit and way of holding the body that can lead to actual physical strain placed upon your muscles and vertebrae.

A poorly aligned posture can, however, be easily corrected by performing a series of specific exercises designed to strengthen core muscles. Before these exercises are undertaken your chiropractor will first assess your spinal health, ensuring that you are not suffering from any subluxations of the spinal vertebrae. If you should have a misalignment he will gently correct it using chiropractic manipulation.

Posture correction begins in relatively small steps. Simple exercises are performed to strengthen ones core and repetitive exercises will be recommended to get the patient more used to the correct alignment for their frame. A few minutes per session is all that is required, with regular repeats of the exercise session throughout the day.

Any new habit will take some time to form and initially the different posture can feel uncomfortable and will require you to use muscles that are not accustomed to working as hard. This initial feeling of discomfort or strangeness will eventually pass and the patient should simply persevere until the new habit has become second nature.

As you go along your Tempe chiropractor will recommend further exercises to improve your posture, asking you to maintain your new stance for longer periods at a time until it becomes second nature. As a benefit you will notice a reduction of tension in the muscles in your neck, shoulders and back and pain symptoms will slowly dissipate.
