Poor Posture Affects More than Your Height
Many live with poor posture, typically developed over a long time due to bad habits. When our body is not properly aligned, there can be negative effects on our health. If you’re suffering from poor posture, you may not even know where to begin fixing your posture. Visit us at Smith Chiropractic Health Care, and we can figure out how to get you standing up straight again.
Good Posture Makes a World of Difference
- Back & shoulder pain
- Low circulation
- Digestion problems
- Spinal misalignment
- Improper lung function
What Causes Poor Posture?
Poor posture is not always a bad habit, and there are physical reasons you may have issues.
Inflexible muscles can decrease your range of motion, affecting your posture and pulling your body out of place. A Lack of strength can also factor into poor posture. The core muscles of the back, pelvis, sides, and glutes create a connection between your upper and lower body, but if these muscles are weak, your body may fall out of balance and you can develop poor posture.
How Is Posture Analyzed?
At our practice, we analyze your posture before treating the underlying issue. We’ll look at your front, sides, and back to see how you naturally stand and look for any immediate muscle imbalances.
Observing your movements, like walking, sitting and standing, can help us determine what corrections can effectively realign your body. We may also take digital X-rays if we need a more detailed view of your spine.

Everyone at Smith Chiropractic Health Care was amazing! Dr.Smith’s adjustments are always a great relief to my back. He will be getting plenty recommendations from me. This business is the only one I can come in to get adjusted and get a nutritional class as well? A great perk if you ask me!
