Chiropractors deal with a diverse group of people who present themselves for treatment for a whole range of issues including back and neck pain.
One of the benefits of using a chiropractor is that we can offer help and advice for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. There are some things you can do by yourself such as learning how to sleep better with specific pillows and we can show you how to undertake a simple exercise programme to help improve your posture. We have many cases presented to us, where the patients’ pain is being caused by bad posture.
So to help you out, here’s a very simple exercise programme which should help improve your posture. You can do this in just three minutes!
It’s from the ‘Straighten Up’ programme – an enjoyable spinal health programme designed to help you feel and look your best and put together by the British Chiropractic Association.
The basic rules:
1. Think positively.
2. STAND TALL. Straighten Up with a confident posture (ears, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles should be in a straight line).
3. Breathe calmly, deeply and slowly from your stomach region.
4. Move smoothly. Do not jerk or bounce.
(If you are experiencing problems it may be an idea to check with your your chiropractor before starting ‘Straighten Up’ to make sure the exercises are appropriate for your specific needs).
Basically, you incorporate the exercises into your daily routine and you will see and feel the benefits fairly quickly.
There’s more information and some more very useful exercise on their website: http://www.straightenupuk.org.
