Why Good Posture Matters

spineYou’ve likely heard the phrase, “sitting is the new smoking.” That’s because we’re increasingly spending more and more hours hunched over our desks. There are many detrimental effects of poor posture while sitting. These include neck and shoulder tightness, low back pain, achiness and other bothersome issues. Too much sitting also can lead to obesity and chronic diseases.

The Benefits of Having Good Posture

When you adopt good postural practices, whether at work or home, you’ll likely experience the following benefits:

  • Increased energy
  • Fewer headaches
  • Less tension in your neck and shoulders
  • Increased lung capacity
  • Improved circulation and digestion
  • Better core strength

Postural Ergonomics

With postural ergonomics, we can help optimise our patients’ performance and recommend appropriate ergonomic equipment to support upright postural design, efficient functional movements and optimal neuro-cognitive output.

As most workers spend 40 hours a week at their workstation, they won’t achieve complete postural correction if their workspace isn’t ergonomically designed. We offer on-site postural ergonomic assessments to ensure patients are maintaining proper posture for better health.

Four areas we can address

We can address the four components of postural ergonomics: functional, postural, brain-based and environmental. These four elements account for functional human performance in the workplace, upright postural design, enhanced focus and cognitive output and the proper ergonomic equipment.

Get Adjusted

Too much sitting can make back or neck pain worse and contribute to poor posture. We encourage you to book an appointment for care. Chiropractic may be beneficial in improving posture and decreasing neck and back pain. We also can give you some suggestions for ways to add more movement to your day.
