Posture Correction Melbourne CBD

Here at our Melbourne Chiropractic clinic, many of our patients initially come to see us because they have posture problems. In many cases, they know their posture isn’t ideal, but they are not sure where to begin their posture correction therapy: posture braces, corrective exercise, stretches or receiving treatment.

At Adaptive Chiropractic, we help you to improve your posture. We begin with a thorough postural analysis, looking for the exact areas causing your problem. We then create a custom posture correction therapy plan for you to adjust and correct your spine alignment, allowing you to engage muscles that have been overcompensating over the years.

As part of our approach, we will also advise you on how to implement an ongoing management and care plan so you can maintain correct posture at home. With our help and support, you will hopefully be able to maintain a good posture for many years to come.

The consequences of having poor posture

Did you know that poor posture contributes to many back and neck conditions? Consistently bad posture will lead to your joints and soft tissues adapting to the new “normal”, which makes correction more difficult the longer it goes on. The consequences of poor posture include:

  • Chronic pain
  • Neck pain and neck related headaches
  • Lack of mobility and reduced flexibility
  • Repeated injuries in sport as a result of muscle imbalances or weakness
  • Stiff joints
  • Core muscle weakness leading to incontinence
  • Tight joints or muscles, especially in the chest, shoulder and hip areas

How can Chiropractors Help With Poor Posture?

A chiropractor can help with poor posture by assessing, diagnosing, and treating musculoskeletal issues that may be contributing to the posture problem. Here are some ways in which a chiropractor can assist in improving posture:

Postural Assessment

Chiropractors are trained to evaluate a patient’s posture and identify any deviations from the normal alignment. Our trained practitioners will conduct a postural analysis to assess the position of the head, shoulders, spine, pelvis, and limbs to determine areas of concern.

Spinal Adjustments

Chiropractors use manual adjustments and manipulation techniques to correct misalignments or subluxations in the spine. These adjustments can help restore proper spinal alignment, relieve tension in the muscles, and promote better posture.

Muscle Rehabilitation

Chiropractors may recommend exercises and stretches to strengthen and stabilize the muscles that support good posture. Weak or imbalanced muscles can contribute to bad posture, and targeted exercises can help address these issues.

Ergonomic Advice

Chiropractors can provide guidance on ergonomics, including proper workplace ergonomics and suggestions for maintaining good posture during daily activities. This advice can be particularly helpful for individuals who spend long hours sitting at a desk or using computers.

Lifestyle Modifications

Chiropractors may offer lifestyle recommendations, such as improving sleep habits, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding activities or habits that exacerbate bad posture.

Posture Education

Education is a key component of chiropractic care. Chiropractors can educate patients about the importance of good posture and provide tips on how to maintain it in various situations.

Pain Management

Poor posture can lead to musculoskeletal pain, such as back, neck, and shoulder pain. Chiropractors can help manage and alleviate these pain symptoms through manual therapies and other techniques.

It’s important to note that the effectiveness of chiropractic care for poor posture may vary from person to person. While some individuals may experience significant improvement in posture and related symptoms, others may require additional interventions or a multidisciplinary approach involving physical therapy, ergonomic changes, and lifestyle modifications.

What to expect from your posture correction treatment

Your first posture correction treatment will last up to 30 minutes and can be done straight after your initial postural analysis. Most of our patients experience relief from their very first treatment. Our chiropractors’ gentle yet effective alignment techniques are suitable for everyone and anyone – from children, to athletes, seniors and everyone in between.
