Dr Brad Ivanchuk here. I am a Burlington, Ontario Chiropractor, Posture Expert, Postural Neurologist and Personal Training Specialist at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line.
We have been discussing the 4 different postural archetypes over the past few weeks and today we are going to learn about the ergo’s.
The ergo’s are your desk jockeys, the occupational athletes … anyone who sits at a desk or a computer for the majority of their day.
These people are going to be prone to posture distortion patterns in 3 out of the 4 posture quadrants; forward head posture in quadrant #1, thoracic hyper-kyphosis (humpback) and shoulders that are rounded forwards in quadrant #2, and forward pelvic tilt in quadrant #3.
These are all the result of prolonged sitting.
Ergo’s will suffer mostly from headaches, TMJ syndrome, neck pain, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shortness of breath, lower back pain, excessive weight gain and low levels of energy at the end of the day.
Their aspirations are to be headache-free and pain-free and have energy left at the end of their work day so they can enjoy their leisure activities, exercise and enjoy their family time.
So, if you are an ergo, you absolutely need to have your posture checked. Remember that as humans we sit way more than we should and that we were designed to.
And I can certainly help you regain a healthy posture system and keep it from collapsing in the future.
All you have to do is call and make an appointment for your free initial consultation which includes a free detailed postural analysis.
