Dr Brad Ivanchuk here. I am a Burlington, Ontario chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line in the Beacon Hill Plaza. I am also a Certified Posture Expert and Postural Neurologist with the American Posture Institute and a canfitpro certified Personal Training Specialist.
Over the next few months we are going to take a deep dive into posturology which the scientific study of posture
And what I will be sharing with you has the potential to change your life, improve your health-span and your life-span both, and even improve your kids health.
I know a lot of you are wondering right off the top how this information would be appropriate for kids, so I would like you to consider the following facts:
For the first time in history, the life-expectancy of children may be less than that of their parents.
Over 50% of kids have Posture Distortion Patterns in their spine. Kids are becoming more slumped, more sedentary and more sick.
67% of students already have Tech Neck posture.
Kids with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder show signs of compromised postural stability.
According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA, 2019), kids with increased screen time have decreased white matter in their brain for language and literacy skills.
Increased use of technology has resulted in a steep decline in posture. Poor posture is the silent contributor to the overall state of health of our kids.
And think about this; our kids will be interacting with technology for the rest of their lives. And they will be interacting with technology for many more years than we will be. Generation-C kids were born with technology.
So not only is it important for us as adults to learn how to maintain healthy posture, its especially important for our kids to learn how to maintain healthy posture.
We will get right into this starting next week. I will make sure it is easy to understand, factual and even practical.
Please join us then and tell your friends. It’s important!
