Kids Posture For The
 "C" Generation

Hello everyone.

Dr Brad here again.

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

For the next while we are going to be talking about pediatrics and posture.

But before we get into it we need to learn about the ‘C-Generation.’

The C-Generation are those kids born between 1995 and 2015.

And what we are seeing in this modern group of pediatric patients is that more and more of them have a C-shaped spinal curve (S-shaped is normal) which is prominent throughout their developmental years.

This is not what nature had intended. This is a primitive postural presentation seen normally in infants and geriatrics only.

And one of the main cause of this is technology.

Kids born between 1995 and 2015 have been using technology since a very early age.
They had their Gameboys, x-boxes, play stations, they got their 1st cell phones (games and texting) and there was a literal explosion of computer use in the home and at school.

This was the first generation of kids that have been immersed in technology and it is the same group of kids that we are collecting our data from.

If you have ever had to tell your kids to “sit up straight” you have already detected a problem. Over the next few weeks I am going to help you as parents understand the potential developmental disorders and functional disorders that can result from a C-shaped spine.
Remember that good posture is by design and not by circumstance.

Life Chiropractic Centre is a family chiropractic and postural correction facility.
