Happy Back Posture Month! The team at Proctor Chiropractic in Tacoma believes that optimal spinal alignment is absolutely integral to overall well-being. When we see dysfunction in our patients--whether it's joint pain, muscle imbalances, ligament strains, or even repetitive injuries--we know that to at least some degree, that person's spine is playing a role. That's why we're firm believers in the importance of good posture.

Good Back Posture 101: The Basics

Everyone's body and lifestyle is a little bit different, so a person's "ideal" posture may change depending on body type, physical task, and so on. At its most basic, the ideal standing posture occurs when the ears, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles are aligned in a straight line.

Why is Good Back Posture So Important?

Every day, we expose our bodies to situations that can impair our posture: sitting for too long, slouching, and hunching over a smart phone are just a few examples. But our chiropractic team at Proctor Chiropractic wants you to really care about your posture. Why? Good posture isn't just about being taller--it actually can have a major positive impact on every area of your life! Here are a few things good posture can do for you:

  • Prevents fatigue, tension headaches, muscle strains, and back pain.
  • Prevents other chronic health problems affecting the musculoskeletal, circulatory, cardiovascular, and digestive systems.
  • Prevents or minimizes the severity of injuries related to sports and repetitive movement (at work or in sport).
  • Improves mood, concentration, energy, and self-image.

How Can Chiropractic Care in Tacoma Fix My Poor Back Posture?

Whether you realize it or not, your posture affects your health and wellness every day. A chiropractor can help relieve your back pain and improve your posture in several ways, including:

  • Postural screening and body mechanics training, including workspace modifications
  • Chiropractic adjustment and spinal manipulations
  • Corrective exercises
  • Massage therapy
  • Modalities, including cryotherapy, cold laser therapy, and mechanical traction
