This is Kiao’s posture after 1 adjustment!

We’re a health conscious society today and good posture is a part of it. Good posture means your bones are properly aligned and your muscles, joints and ligaments can work as nature intended.

Poor Posture can cause…

A lifetime of poor posture can start a progression of symptoms in the average adult. It can start with…

  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Fatigue/lack of energy
  • Back Pain
  • Neck Pain
  • Rounded Shoulders
  • Potbelly
  • Tight, achy muscles in the neck, back, arms and legs
  • Head that either leans forward or backward
  • Bent knees when standing or walking
  • Joint stiffness and pain – at risk for “wear and tear” arthritis, or what is termed degenerative osteoarthritis. Poor posture and limited mobility increase the likelihood of this condition in later years.

Even for younger people, how you carry yourself when working, relaxing or playing can have big effects. Did you know that just fifteen minutes reading or typing when using the wrong positions exhausts the muscles of your neck, shoulders and upper back?

Why is Good posture so important?

Good posture means your vital organs are in the right position and can function at peak efficiency. Good posture helps contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system. Without good posture, your overall health and total efficiency may be compromised. Because the long-term effects of poor posture can affect bodily systems (such as digestion, elimination, breathing, muscles, joints and ligaments), a person who has poor posture may often be tired or unable to work efficiently or move properly.

Poor Posture – How Does it Happen?

Often, poor posture develops because of accidents or falls. But bad posture can also develop from environmental factors or bad habits. This means that you have control.

Today, posture-related problems are increasing:

  • As we become a society that watches more television than any previous generation;
  • As we become a more electronic society, with more and more people working at sedentary desk jobs or sitting in front of computer terminals;
  • As more and more cars are crowding our roads, resulting in accidents and injuries;
  • And as we drive in cars with poorly designed seats.

How We Can Help?

We use a unique and powerful technique that will change your posture and aims to give you symptom relief from your first adjustment. You will feel more balanced and breathe easier.

The basis of this technique? When a vertebrae gets knocked out of position, left or right or even back, the body has muscles to pull it back into place. Simple. BUT when a bone gets stuck FORWARD there is no muscle or group of muscles to pull it back. This is what causes our posture to get worse as we get older and also the headaches, neck pain, low back pain.

The technique allows us to deal with the bones that are stuck forward, which could provide relief to sufferers of scoliosis, numbness and tingling. Each person’s structure, history and case is different, so to see we can help in your case, book in for a consultation today!
