What are Postural Issues?

Postural Issues | CōLAB Health & Body | Chiropractic & Wellness Clinic | Downtown Calgary, AB

Postural issues refer to an unnatural position of the spine, in which the curve of the spine is emphasized, resulting in the muscles, joints and vertebrae being in stressful positions. Poor posture usually results from muscle imbalance, lack of strength in key postural muscles, reduced endurance in postural muscles or overactivity in significant other muscles.

At CōLAB Health and Body, we take a collaborative approach to treatment. Combining chiropractic, Physiotherapy and massage therapy we can help with postural issues and the associated symptoms. Physiotherapy treatment may be quite effective, and may include stretching of tight muscles or tissues, exercises to strengthen the weak muscles, postural training exercises, home exercises for management and manual therapy to help reduce pain, increase flexibility or joint mobility, and improve overall posture and alignment. A chiropractor may help with postural issues by helping to identify and treat the underlying cause. Because a chiropractor understands the role and effects of the spine and its impact on poor posture, they are uniquely qualified to help with postural issues and correction. A chiropractor’s mass techniques of adjusting spines can help improve posture, strengthen the back and increase mobility.  Massage therapy can help to loosen and relax the muscles that are sore from poor posture, allowing the body to better position itself in a more natural and pain-free posture.
