Posture Issues

Dr. Gulrajani shows how kinesiotaping can improve posture.

Poor posture doesn’t just cause temporary or chronic back, shoulder and neck pain. It compromises your diaphragm, the big muscle right below the ribs that helps you take deep breaths. So, instead of using the diaphragm, you use other muscles, like your shoulders, to help you breathe. This causes stress, strain, pain and damage. Furthermore, being hunched over for long periods can cause permanent spinal damage. Duke Chiropractic can help address and prevent these issues.

Dr. Duke explains how to strengthen mid-back muscles and maintain good posture.

HOW DUKE CHIROPRACTIC TREATS POSTURE ISSUES

Most of us weren't brought up knowing how proper posture looks or feels. So, when we get into that position, some of us feel very awkward. Duke Chiropractic can help alleviate the pain and discomfort that results from poor posture, and get you accustomed to healthy posture habits. Some of the steps we take include:

  1. Evaluation. Our doctors will take a thorough look at your strength, flexibility and alignment, as well as examine your habits.
  2. Treatment plan. Having perfect posture isn't as simple as standing up straight; you need to build the muscles in your back and shoulders, which will help you support your body weight while you are standing. We also may prescribe a combination of treatments, including:
