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 Certified Postural Neurologist with the American Posture Institute. And a canfitpro certified Personal Training Specialist, Active Aging Specialist and Children’s Fitness Coach.
School starts in a couple weeks so the stress
level for all students is soon going to ramp up. And the higher the level of education, the higher the level of stress.
So this would be a more than excellent time for every student to get their posture checked to identify where any weaknesses may lie, and to learn how to interact with technology in a safe and healthy way.
Let me explain why.
The physical and mental stresses associated with sitting, studying, typing, texting, using a laptop/tablet, deadlines and wearing a backpack – all of these can cause spinal misalignments and subsequent posture distortions.
Especially Forward Head Posture or Tech Neck.
Tech Neck will cause ‘hump back’ and eventual collapse of the entire posture system.
As the posture system collapses, mental acuity, the ability to focus, energy levels, strength, stamina and endurance will decline resulting in a whole gamut of uncomfortable symptoms.
And these uncomfortable and quite frankly unnecessary symptoms will have a negative impact on academic and even athletic performance.
But it does not have to be this way and I can certainly be of assistance with this. I can help you with the detection and correction of Tech neck and how to maintain a healthy posture system.
