How Does Your Posture Affect Your Health
The Benefits of
The human body is meant to function from a position of balance and equilibrium, with a place for everything and everything in its place. Poor posture is a leading cause of ill health and will affect you in more ways than you think.
Poor posture contributes to a wide range of health problems. Most of us are unaware just how much it affects our well-being. The problem is that most of us will go through life without ever realizing that many of our aches and pains and other health issues are the effects of poor alignment affecting our nerves, muscles and bones. In trying to alleviate our symptoms, we'll take medications, use heat or ice, stretch or rest to achieve temporary relief, yet always the problems return.
Until you address the root cause of the problem, the cycle of pain and breakdown caused by poor posture will continue. As long as the cause of your problems exists you'll ALWAYS have the symptoms. Chiropractic is the only healthcare practice that truly addresses and restores our structural health and integrity.
Did you know it's good for your brain too? Physical activity can help you think, learn, problem-solve, and enjoy an emotional balance. It can improve memory and reduce anxiety or depression. Regular physical activity can also reduce your risk of cognitive decline, including dementia.

There are plenty of good reasons to be physically active. Big ones include reducing the odds of developing heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Maybe you want to lose weight, lower your blood pressure, prevent depression, or just look better. Here's another one, which especially applies to those of us (including me) experiencing the brain fog that comes with age: exercise changes the brain in ways that protect memory and thinking skills.
In a study done at the University of British Columbia, researchers found that regular aerobic exercise, the kind that gets your heart and your sweat glands pumping, appears to boost the size of the hippocampus, the brain area involved in verbal memory and learning. Resistance training, balance and muscle toning exercises did not have the same results.
