Posture Correction

Did you know that your posture can impact every area of your life? Fortunately, Dr. Joseph Gitto offers posture correction in Northfield, NJ to ensure that the impact is a positive one.

Importance of Proper Posture and How to Achieve It

We all know that hearing, “Sit up straight,” five million times as a child can be irritating – and probably something we’ve all subconsciously rebelled against when our parents weren’t around. The truth is, though, that those words were more than a reprimand for slouching. They were actually full of wisdom.

Practicing proper posture when sitting and standing plays an essential role in your overall health. Poor posture can lead to:

  • Back injuries
  • Ligament sprains
  • Muscle strains
  • Poor digestion
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Chronic pain
  • Undue wear on the joints and muscles
  • Poor mood
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Chronic fatigue and more

It might not be odd to think that it can lead to pain, but many people don’t understand the link between mood, mental health, digestion, or other health concerns and posture. In simple terms, poor posture causes the spinal column to condense, which leads to nerve constriction. These nerves are directly related to mental health, as well as conditions such as poor digestion, allergies, and more.

Practicing proper posture, however, leaves plenty of room for all components of the spinal column, allowing them to function properly. This leads to many benefits, including a lower risk of injuries, better sleep, improved mental health, and more energy.

Posture Correction With Your Northfield, NJ Chiropractor

Poor posture isn’t always due to poor habits – although habits certainly contribute. Sometimes, though, misalignment or injuries might be to blame. And even in those times when habits are the cause, there’s a very good chance that poor posture has led to misalignment or another issue. Regardless of the initial cause, Dr. Gitto can provide personalized posture correction for your needs.

Lasting posture correction typically requires several steps. After assessing your posture and diagnosing the issue or issues, a customized care plan is developed, which will likely include a combination of the following methods.

  • Adjustments: Whether misalignment is at the root of your posture issues or it has been caused by your posture, spinal adjustments can restore proper alignment.
  • Soft tissue techniques: This can include anything from chiropractic massage to stretching and strengthening exercises.
  • Lifestyle adjustments: You are an essential part of your posture correction journey. Dr. Gitto will recommend habit changes and other steps you can take outside of the office to help maintain proper posture.
