Hello everyone. Dr Brad Ivanchuk here.
I am a Burlington, Ontario Chiropractor and Certified Posture Expert at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line.
I have had a lot of inquiries recently about the Complete Posture Correction (CPC) program
and what is involved, so this is what I would like to talk about today.
The CPC program is unique to chiropractors who are members of the American Posture Institute and who have studied the necessary material and passed the necessary examinations.
There are 3 parts to the CPC program.
The first part is the chiropractic adjustment.
These are to correct the postural distortions in your spine that are the result of spinal misalignments (subluxations) that have been left undetected and uncorrected.
And we all have them to one degree or another. Most people feel lighter and more mobile right away after adjustment.
The second part is postural rehabilitation exercises.
These are necessary to strengthen postural muscles that have become weak, and stretch or elongate postural muscles that have become too tight. These will differ from person to person depending upon your specific posture distortion patterns.
These are very, very important to support your adjustments, build a strong core to help prevent postural collapse and improve your upright postural balance against gravity.
The third and final part is posture habit re-education of your daily habits.
These will depend upon what you do for a job and the other activities you like to do.
The goal here is to make you consistently mindful of your posture throughout the day. So when you do start to fatigue and your posture begins to collapse, you are aware of this and you can take the appropriate measures to prevent this from happening.
Among many other benefits, the CPC program will help you look better, feel better and move better.
Remember that good posture is by design and not by circumstance.
As always, if you have any questions on this topic or any other health concerns you may have or your kids may have, please call me.
Consultations are always free of charge and these include a detailed postural analysis.
Family appointments are always available where we can check your whole family at the same time. The reason being is that spinal problems tend to run in families.
