Posture affects and moderates every physiological function from breathing to hormone production. Homeostatis and autonomic regulation are intimately connected with posture. No matter what symptom you may be experiencing postural dysfunction may be the root cause.
We Provide Assessment, Treatment and Most Importantly Correction to Poor Posture
An Australian study found that after the age of 25, every single hour of television—i.e., slouching on the couch—reduced the viewer’s life expectancy by 21.8 minutes. Plus, when English researchers cross-referenced sitting time with health outcomes in a different study, they found that those people who sat the most more than doubled their risk of developing diabetes and had a 147 % increase in their risk for cardiovascular disease, even if they exercised.
It has also been found that head forward posture affects blood pressure. How can that be? It happens because the same part of our brainstem that controls posture also controls many of the automatic functions in our body like breathing, digestion, and even blood pressure.
We use a combination of traditional chiropractic, physiotherapy and functional neurology to correct your poor posture.
