The most common postural deficiencies in the office
At Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we are treating more and more people whose bodies are suffering from a 9-5 lifestyle. The main postural shortcomings we see from office workers include:
- Rounded shoulders and a hunched back
- Forward head posture
- Anterior pelvic tilt
Often, all three of these are present at the same time. A single poor posture tends to pull our bodies out of alignment and cause imbalance in the musculature which is supposed to support good, healthy posture. As a result, good posture becomes harder to maintain and your body adjusts to support poor posture- the ugly cycle feeds itself. At your Park Slope Chiropractor, we focus on breaking this cycle by:
- Teaching good postural habits
- Undoing tension in the musculature
- Increasing strength in the postural muscles
- Reestablishing alignment in the spine
- Rebalancing the musculature which supports the spine
The end result is a body that has the right input variables to support good posture in the first place. The only piece left in the puzzle is awareness- being proactive when your body is slipping into unhealthy postural patterns.
