Last time we learned about the 5 signs of poor posture and today we are going to discuss the 8 consequences poor posture can have on your health.
If you do not already see a chiropractor that specializes in posture, please read carefully because you need to know this!
1- Loss of fitness. And what I mean by this is decreased height and decreased energy.
2- TMJ problems (problems with your jaw joint) such as pain, difficulty opening your mouth, tooth pain, facial pain and headaches.
3- Stiffness and decreased range of motion in your neck and shoulder joints.
4- Degenerative joint disease (DJD) and osteoarthritis (OA) in your spine.
5- Decreased lung capacity (shortness of breath) from slouching.
6- Poor digestion.
7- Decreased bone density (osteoporosis).
8- Decreased muscular strength throughout your body.
Notice the operative word here…’decreased ‘. How can anything that is ‘decreased ‘be moving you towards health and vitality?
If you or anyone in your family is suffering from even one of these signs and symptoms, you need to have a chiropractic check-up right away.
Because the sooner we address the issue the better results we will get and moreover, it will help to prevent other health problems from developing in the future.
More on this in our next post.
