Take Advantage of Posture Correction in the Melbourne CBD
A healthy, balanced posture is more than just looking good – it is also a reflection of the health of your spine. At Chiropractic Health & Wellness on Collins in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, our qualified health professionals can conduct a thorough postural analysis and devise a posture correction treatment plan designed specifically for you and your body.
Correct your posture today – your future self will thank you for it
It is the shifting of the spine on the inside that creates our outward posture appearance. The most common profile is the slouched profile; this is where the shoulders are rounded, the head cranes forward and the body stoops. It’s estimated that 90% of the population have this posture profile to some degree. This does not make it ‘normal’ – just prevalent.
Our head is about the size and weight of a bowling bowl and should sit directly above our shoulders. When it moves forward however, additional external forces are transmitted to the spine, muscles and ligaments of the neck and upper back. Due to the compensatory nature of the spine, a chain reaction can occur causing additional distortions down the spine and into the pelvis.
What does a posture correction session involve?
At Chiropractic Health & Wellness on Collins in the Melbourne CBD, we use an analysis app as part of our chiropractic assessment. We utilise a photo of you taken on our iPad that can detect and analyse postural distortions. From this we are able to:
- Make an accurate calculation of your deviation from normal posture.
- Estimate additional stress on muscles and joints; this can include headaches, neck aches, back pain
- Pinpoint diversion of stress to other systems, such as increased levels of tiredness and fatigue. Click here to see a chart of how poor posture and spinal degeneration can affect other organs and your overall health.
After your chiropractic care begins, we continue to utilise the program in order to monitor your improvements and postural correction changes with the use of unique comparison reports for best results over time.
