If you’ve been developing poor posture in recent years, you’ll probably have several indicators which make it obvious. For instance, you may notice that you seem to be losing height or your clothes may fit differently. You may even be getting admonitions from friends and relatives to stand up straighter or to sit up straight in a chair, because they’ve been noticing it too. Poor posture is not something you should tolerate or allow to go untreated, because it can lead to more serious problems later in life. You can receive poor posture chiropractic treatment in North Haledon, NJ at the clinic known as Wolke Chiropractic & Rehabilitation.

Causes of poor posture


Daily activities that contribute to degraded performance

There are quite a few causes of poor posture in our modern society, some of which are listed below:

  • sedentary lifestyle
  • being a student and committing long hours to study and homework
  • decades spent at a desk job
  • excessive use of smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other electronic devices
  • effects of earth’s natural gravity

Normal posture and proper spinal alignment allow us to perform at our best, and when poor posture creeps into the picture, it stands to reason that there would be a corresponding degradation of performance. Poor posture can also accentuate the natural stress on the joints, ligaments, and muscles of the body, placing undue emphasis on these areas, and causing inflammation. When that happens, the body will simply not be able to perform as it should, and you’ll start to notice a number of little problems which surface in your daily activities.

How chiropractic treatment can help


Treating headaches with non-invasive techniques.

Whenever you have any other symptoms of poor posture, for example one shoulder higher than the other, or a noticeable slouch, it will definitely have an impact on the nervous system of your body and of your spine. A skilled chiropractor can use gentle manipulations to remedy any spinal misalignments which may exist, and help restore them to normal. In particular, spinal manipulation can help with such postural problems as scoliosis, improper forward head posture, unlevel pelvis or hips, hunchback condition, any kind of damage to the normal curvature of the back or the neck.

Before developing a program of treatment, your chiropractor will attempt to obtain a thorough medical history of yourself and your family. Then he/she will closely observe the way you sit, stand, and walk, so that your spinal alignment can be evaluated. Then there may be some orthopedic and neurological testing which takes place to provide additional information, and your posture will be measured against ideal posture to determine whether there is any obvious deviation.
