Chiropractic Sacramento CA Posture

One of the things we celebrate most at Barham Chiropractic is how the way patients carry themselves changes while going through care. Patients who come in hunched over, possibly in pain, start to visit us walking tall and confidently.Posture can play a major role in changing how you look and feel.

Our Sacramento CA chiropractor office can help you with fixing bad posture by finding the underlying cause of your problems and correcting them. If you correct the root of your bad posture, you will naturally start sitting and standing up straight without having to constantly remind yourself.Let's take a look at some of the benefits of better posture and how chiropractic care can help you get there.

Why Is Good Posture Important In Sacramento CA?

Healthy Posture can have an obvious and immediate impact on appearance.
Like we said before: After a few visits our patients start to look taller, and healthier, walk with more ease, and appear more confident.

But there are a lot of health benefits that are not so obvious. Here are a few:

  • Reduced stress on the muscles and joints
  • Proper alignment of bones and joints
  • Improved nervous system function
  • Reduced tension on ligaments
  • Less risk of back injury
  • Conservation of energy (because the body can be more efficient)
  • Better mood
  • Improved digestion

Identifying bad posture is important because it can cause various problems like back pain, headaches, and even an increased risk of injuries. Bad posture can even make you look older. Poor posture is usually characterized by hunched or arched shoulders, a rounded upper back, and an arched lower back. There are many things that can cause bad posture including stress, pregnancy, weight gain, low confidence, weak postural muscles, tight muscles, previous injuries, or a history of wearing high-heeled shoes or heavy backpacks, and much more.

Luckily, the fact of the matter is that in most cases, bad posture can be corrected.

How A Chiropractor Can Help With Fixing Bad Posture

There are 3 major steps we take at Barham Chiropractic to start resolving posture issues fast.

1. Initial Patient Intake And Assessment

Before we can start taking care of you, we need to learn as much as we can about you and your condition. Finding out about past injuries and pertinent medical issues can help us make a care plan that will be right for YOU. After your Initial Intake, Barham Chiropractic usually performs Range of Motion assessments and gets diagnostic imaging assessments (if necessary). The Range of motion assessments diagnostic imaging will help us gain a thorough understanding of the underlying issues and how to best treat them.

2. Chiropractor Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments focus on manipulating and realigning spinal joints to reduce nerve pressure, increase blood flow, and alleviate tension and pain. By correcting subluxations (spinal misalignments), our Sacramento Chiropractor office can help restore proper posture and prevent further harm to the body.

3. Soft Tissue Work

Often Chiropractors will give patients a list of exercises to help their condition. This is one way that, chiropractors can make sure that any soft issue problems that may cause you to come back out of alignment are taken care of. However, sometimes misalignments are caused by tightness that stretching and chiropractic adjustments can not resolve.

When we have a patient struggle with a severe case like this in our office we typically encourage them to schedule a massage with one of our excellent masseuses.

How Long Does It Take For Chiropractic Care To Correct Bad Posture?

We love giving patients precise answers to questions regarding how long care takes to be effective. However, there are several factors to consider, like how much your posture needs to be corrected and whether or not there are severe conditions slowing down your progress. For some patients, it can take as little as two weeks, but for patients with severe conditions, it can take months or even years.

Thank You For Visiting!

Good posture can help you look and feel your best. Unfortunately, simply straightening your back when you remember is unlikely to solve any posture issues you may have. If you're experiencing back pain or other issues from poor posture, we would love an opportunity to help you. We look forward to celebrating your success.
