Vancouver Chiropractor Shares 3 Tips for Improving Posture
Chiropractic Care Supports Good Posture
Good posture is important for pain management and injury prevention. Proper posture helps to prevent the characteristically rounded spine that is associated with damage to the vertebrae in the middle and upper spine. Chiropractic adjustments bring space to the vertebrae, countering this compression.
Together with exercises and ergonomics, chiropractic care can help you break free from an endless cycle of chronic pain and poor posture.
#2: Strengthen the core. Your core muscles, found in the abdomen and pelvic area, help protect your spine when you move. A strong core is the foundation for good posture. To build a strong core, theres no need to do hours of crunches at the gym. Instead, yoga and Pilates exercises are a great way to increase core strength while also improving flexibility and increasing mind-body awareness. If you are new to yoga or suffer from lower back pain, hatha and restorative yoga are two gentle disciplines that will gradually ease your body into regular practice.
