Your body is a conformist
Many of us have led ourselves down the road toward back pain through bad habits. Some of these habits are more subconscious than others, such as the way we position our bodies as we perform repetitive tasks. If you work at a computer all day, and pay little attention to posture, chances are good that your body is training itself into holding patterns that are pulling your body out of alignment and contributing to tension and pain. In order to start feeling less pain, we need to seriously look at the holding patterns that our bodies have established over the years.
Peeling back years- and layers- of tightness
When your entire lifestyle is complicit in your poor postural habits, you have to admit, the odds are stacked against you. Our job at Hayes Family Chiropractic is to help you turn the odds in your favor. Depending on the state of your spine, we provide you with an individually-calibrated action plan to retake control of your body’s natural alignment and posture. We start by restoring alignment between the vertebrae, using targeted spinal adjustment.
At some point along the way, you lost your innate postural ability- following the cues to keep your spine free of tension and bearing the weight of your upper body in a way that doesn’t cause injury or degradation. Our next step is to retrain your body and mind to carry your body in a way that interprets forces with the least amount of impact on our bodies.
Chiropractic is the first layer of defense in the fight to retake your body’s natural alignment and establish good posture as the norm.
