How Bad Posture Can  Impact Your Digestion

Hello everyone.

Dr Brad Ivanchuk here.

I am a Burlington, Ontario chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line.I am also Certified Posture Expert with the American Posture Institute.

Today we are going to learn why it is important to assess your structure/spinal alignment/posture when things do not seemto be going right on the inside.

Let’s take posture quadrant #3 for example … your 5 lower lumbar vertebrae and your pelvis.This is your main stability quadrant both externally and internally.

Internally, it stabilizes 3 things; your digestion, elimination and reproduction.

The most common posture distortion here is pelvic tilt or pelvic un-leveling.This is easy to check.

Stand in front of a mirror and rest your hands on your hips and compare one side to the other.

A misaligned pelvis means a misaligned digestive tract too.

When the digestive tract is misaligned, food cannot pass through comfortably and fluidly.

This will lead to cramping, indigestion, constipation ad even hemorrhoids.

Females may notice menstrual cramps, difficulties conceiving, and challenges during pregnancy and childbirth.

A misaligned pelvis will also cause weakness of the pelvic floor making it difficult for one to control the release of urine.

This can affect kids, adults, males and females both.

So when things don’t seem to be going right on the inside, the logical place to start is to assess your posture system.

Detailed posture scans are included in your free initial consultation here at Life Chiropractic Centre.
