Each initial exam includes a complete posture analysis using PostureScreen software. We email you a .pdf file of your posture analysis and initial diagnoses. The chiropractor will also go over the completed exam results with you at the time of your exam. If you decide to become a patient of ours we will re-analyze your posture each month to make sure that your posture is improving.
How does poor posture effect your health or comfort level? A typical example is called forward head position. An example of this is found in the upper right diagram. As we work, or drive or chase the kids around our head moves forward, until it permanently takes on that position! Its harder for your shoulder muscles to hold your head up in that position, and so most of us have tight shoulder muscles. Chiropractic helps to bring the head back into proper alignment, reducing shoulder tension.
How does chiropractic do that? Chiropractors remove scar tissue from the joints (where the bones connect) and muscles. When the scar tissue is removed from these areas its easy to correct your posture! Once the scar tissue is gone your chiropractor will teach you some physiotherapy exercises. Chiropractic, physiotherapy, and massage as well will correct your posture and help you stay healthy and look young!
