Kids Benefit From Having Good Posture

Hello everyone.

Dr Brad Ivanchuk here.

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

Today we are going to talk about our precious children and why every children should have a spinal and posture check-up.

According to our research at the API, 34% of kids now have forward head posture or tech neck.Other researchers have found that 65% of school-aged kids present with back pain due to postural distortions, and kids asyoung as 10 years of age are showing visible signs of spinal degenerative arthritis in the lower back both on xray and MRIstudies.

I have seen this in my own patients as well.

Remember that spinal degenerative arthritis is when the spinal discs between the vertebrae begin to collapse leading tospinal joint irritation and spinal nerve root irritation both of which can be quite painful.

Remember too that one of the main causes of spinal degenerative arthritis is spinal misalignment and posture distortion.So one benefit of chiropractic care for kids is that spinal adjustments help to maintain good posture.

And good posture in turn will help to prevent spinal degenerative arthritis.If you have any concerns about your kid’s posture or would just like them to have a check-up, I would love to help you.

All you have to do is call 905 335 LIFE (5433) and schedule an appointment for your free initial consultation which alsoincludes a detailed posture scan.

Posture scans are easy to do; they take less than 5 minutes, they are non-invasive and very informative.

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