Most people have likely been told at some point that they have poor posture, or need to improve their posture. It’s extremely common to have some degree of posture issues, and it’s not only the stereotypical “slouched” appearance that can cause problems. Any subtle positioning that results in strain on the body can cause long-term complications if it becomes habitual. If you live in Selden or Smithtown New York, Block Chiropractic Sports and Wellness can help educate and improve your posture.
Some common actions and positions that are likely culprits for bad posture include:
- Sitting – desk jobs can often result in bad seated posture
- Walking – making sure your gait is balanced is vital
- Standing – square your shoulders when standing for long periods
Chiropractic care can help greatly with complications from poor posture. If you’re looking for a chiropractor in Smithtown or Selden, Block Chiropractic Sports & Wellness’s experienced staff will help you with any posture-related problems.
Posture issues can have many detrimental health effects, especially because posture habits are some of the most difficult to break, as posture is reinforced in every daily action we take and it requires constant effort to overcome years of habit.
