When you see a person with bad posture, you may make a lot of assumptions about their mood, character, and overall demeanor. If you have bad posture, other people are likely thinking the same about you…
Whether someone has mentioned your posture, or you have wanted to address your posture for a while, now is a good time to take a step towards better posture. For some, it’s as simple as remembering to straighten up their backs. For others, it can be a lot more difficult and may require the help of a chiropractor.
What Is Postural Correction?
Postural correction is the process of having your posture professionally adjusted by a chiropractor. This is for situations in which adjusting posture has become very difficult for a person to do on their own.
Why Postural Correction?
You may have grown up with your elders telling you to straighten your back and maintain good posture. This was actually great advice. Good posture has been shown to not only improve the appearance of confidence but also improve the actual confidence of the person with good posture! Beyond confidence, good posture also helps with energy levels, joint and bone alignment, mood, and even digestion. You are also at a lower risk of back injury if you have good posture.
There are a few reasons why someone may not have good posture. One is simply a habit. If you’ve spent years with your back hunched, it may take practice and conscious effort to get in the habit of keeping your back straight. There are other reasons for bad posture as well, though. Injuries can lead to poor posture due to the back muscles being weakened. Weight gain and pregnancy may also lead to poor posture. Carrying heavy objects, high heels, stress…there are a lot of things that can detract from your posture.
Hyperkyphosis is another cause of poor posture. This is a condition that leads to a hunchback or roundback posture.
While there are a lot of reasons for poor posture, there is a solution—chiropractic care. At Achieve Health and Wellness, our chiropractor will evaluate your musculoskeletal system to identify the root cause of your posture problems. Dr. Fisher will then put a treatment plan together to address the root problem, while also treating any symptoms. The plan he creates will improve your range of motion, eliminate discomfort, strengthen your muscles, and make the process of holding yourself upright easier. Dr. Fisher may also provide you with a series of corrective exercises that will enhance the benefits of the care you are receiving.

What is Chiropractic Treatment?
Chiropractic (chiropractic treatment) is a form of medical care that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of the neuromusculoskeletal system. This includes nerves, muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments.
A chiropractor is a medical professional that specializes in making adjustments to the spines of patients to increase mobility, eliminate pain, treat discomfort, and improve posture. Often times chiropractic is combined with other forms of care such as physical therapy, cold laser therapy, and more.

Other Reasons for Chiropractic Treatment
Slipping and falling can lead to a whole host of different injuries. One very common injury with particularly nasty falls is spinal misalignment. If you have fallen down and are now experiencing back and/or neck pain, it’s a good idea to set an appointment with a chiropractor for them to take a look. This is especially so if you are experiencing chronic pain that began soon after the accident. A chiropractor will be able to take a look at your spine and determine what the source of the pain and discomfort is. From there, they can perform adjustments to repair the damage to the spine.
- Car Accidents
Car accidents are traumatic in different ways. Not only are they scary, but they can also cause physical trauma. One very common injury that is caused by car accidents is whiplash. Whiplash is when the head is jerked back and forth quickly, which causes injury to the neck. To treat whiplash, consider reaching out to Achieve Health and Wellness. Our team helps many patients that have been in accidents, and we are able to diagnose and treat many spinal injuries that have occurred due to car accidents.
- Sports Injuries
Sports can be pretty hard on the body. This is especially so for contact sports. If you play football, wrestling, MMA, or any other contact sport, you are at risk of a spinal injury that results in misalignment. To treat the misalignment, you’ll want to visit a chiropractor. If you visit Achieve, Dr. Fisher will perform an exam and determine the best course of action for treating your sports injury. If there is a misalignment, he will realign your spine. This will help with aches, pains, and other discomforts. It will also help to return your range of motion, so you can get back to the sport you love!
