Dr Brad Ivanchuk here.
I am a Burlington, Ontario chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line.
I am also a Certified Posture expert with the American Posture Institute.
Early in March we learned about mindless (bad) posture
and mindful (good) posture.
Bad posture is not just an aesthetic problem, it is a modern day epidemic affecting the lives of millions of people.
Eighty percent of the population will suffer from low back pain at least once in their life-time.
And I would argue that this number is even higher.
I have treated kids as young as 8 years old who are already suffering from backpain!
Fifty percent of the population suffer from neck pain or headaches, and 70% demonstrate posture distortions(spinal misalignments) in the neck.
Elderly people with hump-back have a 144% greater rate of mortality. In other words, elderly people withhump-back die sooner.And according to the American Posture Institute, up to 90% of adults present with forward head posture (tech neck).
These numbers are staggering!
With advancements in technology, we sit more, we stand less, we are not as physicallyactive and this is having a profound effect on our health.
And from a very early age.As a posture expert, I have the solution to these types of problems.
So if you or anyone in your family is suffering from such, please call and schedule an appointment for your free initial consult.
These also include a free detailed posture scan which is a great place to start.
Posture scans are easy to do,they only take 5 minutes, they are non-invasive and highly informative.
