Straighten Up! Good Posture Matters

calceraIf you ever experience tension or pain across the upper back or shoulder blades, get frequent headaches, have low back pain or have poorly flexible and tight leg muscles, you probably have poor posture.

Poor posture shifts the body weight unevenly to some muscles, making them chronically tight and sore, while others get weak from under-use. Imbalanced muscles create un-even pull on the bones of the spine, shoulders and hips, causing misalignment and spinal nerve stress. That nerve stress leads to even tighter muscles, and the vicious cycle goes on and on. This is a common pattern in people with fibromyalgia, headaches, shoulder pain and upper back pain.

You can break this cycle in part by improving your posture – sit and stand up straight. However, that alone can’t un-do the alignment problems that developed gradually from years of poor posture. Chiropractic adjustments can correct the spinal problems, relieve the nerve pressure and stress, allowing the muscles to start adapting and get more flexible so you can more easily “straighten up”.

You didn’t get that way over night, and changing takes time, too.

Dr. Rick Calcara of Calcara Family Chiropractic has been helping Olympia chiropractic patients improve their posture and their health for over 25 years!
