According to health educator Robert Cooper, “Posture is affected by, and affects, every aspect of our lives. Your state of nutrition, exercise, stress management, body fat control and mental development all depend in part, on your posture. With good posture, exercise is more enjoyable, digestion improves, the mind is clearer, senses sharper and problems seem more manageable.”
Posture is one of the most overlooked secrets to better health and performance at any age. Posture is the window to your state of health. Every one of us has been told to sit up straight or stand tall by our mother ‘s while growing up.
The reason is simple: Poor posture is controlled by our daily tasks, job positions, muscle tension and bony alignment.
In addressing posture your doctor is addressing an important aspect of your day to day life. They will be providing you with recommendations on ergonomics (how you body relates and interacts with its environment) and exercise. Being mindful of those suggestions and activities can make a big impact on your day to day life.
It is time for a new concept for health, wellness and vitality. The new concept is better health through better living.
Chiropractic was never designed to be a treatment. It is a lifestyle that is perfectly in alignment with the rapid shift, and trend, in society toward health and wellness.
If wellness, vitality, flexibility and longevity are what you want, adjust to the chiropractic lifestyle. It’s never too early or late to begin.
