Preventing Stumbles And Falls
“How Correcting Your Posture Can Prevent Stumbles and Falls”
Hello again. This is Dr. Brad and I am a Burlington chiropractor here at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line.
Last time we learned how postural distortions – Forward Head Posture specifically – can increase the risk of stumbling and falling especially in the elderly population.
And today I would like to explain what measures you can take to prevent this from happening to you.
Of course, the best way is to never let your posture collapse in the first place but here is what you need to do if you already have bad posture.
The first thing is to have your posture assessed by a Certified Posture Expert and this is where I can help you. And this will probably require an xray of your spine so we can take a real close look at your posture and check for any signs of spinal degenerative arthritis.
And just so you know, there will be no cost to you for xrays as long as you have a health card. Once we determine the extent of your postural collapse, then I will put together a treatment plan for you that will consist of the following 4 components.
First is your chiropractic adjustments, second is spinal traction – both of these happen in the office. Third is reverse posture exercises and the fourth one is using a special spinal orthotic. Both of these you can do in the comfort of your own home at your convenience and I will of course teach you how.
These are the 4 components of the Complete Posture Correction program and should only be prescribed by Certified Posture Experts who have trained specifically with the American Posture Institute such as myself.
To learn more about the Complete Posture Correction program, all you have to do is call me to schedule an appointment for your free initial consultation. Our phone number here in Burlington is 905 335 5433 and if you have any concerns about your kids posture, yes you can bring them and yes I can check them all at the same time.
It is so very important that everyone have their posture checked. It is free. It is easy. And the only thing it will cost you is a little bit of your time.
Remember that good posture is always by design and never by circumstance.
