Importance of Posture
The problem that we see in Western cultures is that our unnatural habit of sitting down all day does a number on our spines — not to mention our posture!
And if we're not seated at a desk, we’re hunched over, glued to our cell phones, iPads and laptops!
Far too many live their lives hunched over and with their necks stuck out like turtles. Doctor’s call this “forward head posture,” and studies prove that for every inch your head sticks out from a true center of gravity, your neck bears an extra 10 pounds of stress. Just think about how common and dangerous this can be for your health!
During posture evaluations, chiropractors regularly observe many of their patients carrying their head two to three inches forward, which is an extra 20-30 pounds of pressure on their neck!
If your posture could use some straightening up, consider getting chiropractic adjustments to help realign your spine. Together, you and Dr. Jeff can get your body aligned the way it should be in order to avoid pain, illness and performance issues. Call 269.327.4813 today to schedule an appointment.
