Local patients can reduce their painful backache symptoms by undergoing posture correction exercises with their Encinitas chiropractor. The habit of adopting a poor posture can over time have a powerful negative effect upon spinal health and may actually force vertebrae out of their natural alignment due to the ongoing strain.
Poor posture is easily correctable if the patient is willing to apply themselves and to do some simple exercises and other corrective techniques. The chiropractic consultant will recommend exercises that work to strengthen specific muscle groups responsible for working together to improve posture. Initially the new exercises and positioning of the spine may seem uncomfortable, but with a little perseverance it will become second nature.
This is a long-term process that will require a series of consultations at your chiropractors offices. They will give you a thorough physical assessment and after taking a general medical history the chiropractor will ensure that any existing misalignments of the vertebrae are corrected. They must ensure that the entire musculoskeletal system is in balance before the corrective exercises should be attempted.
The adjustments themselves are painless and utilize seemingly simple techniques that physically manipulate the vertebrae back into position. The healing process requires the patient to adopt a more sedentary pace for several days following an alignment. The doctor will advise you when it is an ideal time to begin with some simple posture correcting exercises.
These will be very easy to do stretching exercises that the patient should repeat throughout the day at various intervals. Consecutive chiropractic assessments will help both the doctor and the patient by monitoring their progress. As the muscles strengthen, further exercises will be advised.
A general maintenance program provided by your Encinitas chiropractor will help to ensure that you remain on track with your posture correcting exercises. The patient will eliminate the risk of suffering from future ailments related to musculoskeletal imbalances by simply following chiropractic advice.
