Posture is no longer something that is pure visual or something your parents remind you of “sit up straight now” but an inter relation to your physical health. In the Journal AJPM the Authors noted that “posture and normal physiology and function are inter-related”.
Most Medical physicians do not address posture when they talk about the overall well being or health of their patients yet the Doctors of this study discover “significant evidence points to the point that posture affects physiology and function of the human body”. “Observations of the striking influence of postural mechanics on function and symptomatology have led to our hypothesis that posture affects and moderates every physiologic function from breathing to hormonal production. Spinal pain, headache, mood, blood pressure, pulse, and lung capacity are among the functions most easily influenced by posture” stated Norman Shealy MD.
Seek out Chiropractic care not because you have back pain, seek out chiropractic care for true health. When you have good posture you have more than a healthly look, you have a healthy body!
