Do you often find yourself squirming uncomfortably in long meetings? Do you dread family outings because you know you’ll be reaching for the ibuprofen within a couple hours? Relief may be closer than you think. Millions of Americans suffer from unnecessary pain due to poor posture.
At Olson Family Chiropractic in Lakeville, we offer several techniques to improve your posture and reduce pressure on joints that can lead to serious back pain. Here’s how we use posture therapy to reduce your pain level and get you walking tall again!
The Problem of Poor Posture
Chronic back pain is a common ailment in the United States. What most back pain sufferers don’t realize is that their pain problems are oftentimes avoidable and due to poor posture. The important role posture plays in musculoskeletal health can’t be overstated.
When poor posture habits begin to creep in, they can cause damage over time to the spine and joints. Poor posture places pressure and strain on areas of the back that can be extremely painful. This includes your muscles, discs, and fascia.
Correcting Posture Problems
At Olson Family Chiropractic, we work with patients to determine exactly the source of their pain. Many patients are surprised to learn that the severe pain they’re experiencing in one part of their body is due to a problem with alignment in another.
Our chiropractic team can assess your spinal alignment and get to the root of the problem. We offer a wide range of therapies to align your spine and help you dramatically reduce your pain.
How Posture Therapy Works
Posture therapy works by helping you develop a more aligned spine and better overall posture. This will improve blood flow to your muscles and fascia, as well as relieve some of the pressure on your joints. We’ll use training and education to help you develop better posture habits in the long run so you can enjoy lasting relief.
In addition to spinal adjustments, we may prescribe the following treatments:
● Myofascial release
● Physical therapy
