Posture Correction

Posture Correction, Richmond

Here at our Richmond clinic, many of our patients come to Adaptive Chiropractic initially because of a poor posture. In many cases they know their posture isn’t ideal, but they are not sure where to begin: posture braces, exercises, stretches or receiving treatment.

Fortunately, we are able to provide the best posture correction and rounded shoulders solution for you. To begin, we first look for the exact areas causing the problem. We can then adjust and correct the 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 that you can take home with you. With our help and support, you will hopefully be able to maintain a good posture for the years to come.

The consequences of having poor posture

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

  • Discomfort and back pain
  • 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

Chiropractic solutions for posture correction and rounded shoulders

Chiropractic care is a crucial step in the initial diagnosis and treatment of poor posture and rounded shoulders. However, one of the most vital steps for your future wellbeing is a good management plan, one that provides you with the right exercises needed to strengthen the right muscles, so your posture remains appropriately positioned and you can minimise the chances of reverting back to old habits.

What to expect from your posture correction treatment

Generally, your first posture correction treatment will last up to 30 minutes and can be done straight after your examination. Most of our patients experience results from their very first treatment. Our chiropractors’ gentle yet effective alignment techniques are gentle enough for children, and are able to restore function and movement for athletes and seniors alike.
