Your mum knew more about health than you realised as she told you, "don't slouch!". Poor posture is linked to many problems and symptoms, both short term and long term.
"Posture is a window to the spine" is an old saying that speaks volumes. If your posture is crooked, then your spine will be as well.
A research journal studying how posture relates to overall health found:
“Posture has been shown to affect and moderate every physiologic function from breathing to hormonal production. Spinal pain, headache, mood, blood pressure, pulse, and lung capacity are the functions most easily influenced by posture" - AJPM 1994:4;36-39
This article shows how much posture is related to health, pain, and symptoms. At Geelong Spine Centre, proper clinical posture is essential to overall spinal health and relieving pain and symptoms. We use CBP Systems to improve poor posture, poor spinal curves, and to treat conditions such as whiplash injuries and scoliosis.
Poor posture needs to be addressed and corrected in order to have proper standing, sitting, walking, exercising, and even sleeping postures. At Geelong Spine Centre, we have the rehab techniques necessary to improve poor posture in all of these positions, so that your spine is in an optimal position.
We have patients who travel long distances for our services, and we have been able to help patients who have found little relief in their past. We credit much of this to our posture correction techniques and CBP spinal correction services.
Contact Geelong Spine Centre at 5229 9888 to see if your poor posture is related to your health problems, pain, and symptoms.
