Correcting Poor Posture with Chiropractic Treatment

Poor posture is the underlying cause for many people who suffer from back pain, neck pain, and excessive stress to their joints and muscles.

For those of us who continually use our cell phones for texts, emails, internet usage, YouTube, or video games, poor posture can manifest in the form of faulty neck posture, a slouched posture, and even rounded shoulders.

Continued forward neck posture (as is often the case with cell phone usage) can injure the cervical and lumbar spine structures as well as the ligaments that support the vertebrae and provide protection to the discs. Having good posture promotes efficient movement, proper stress management, correct spinal biomechanics, and an overall feeling of well-being.

Poor posture become progressively more complicated with age, so early detection and posture correction is paramount. Postural exercises and the correction of improper biomechanics through Woodland Hills chiropractic manipulation (Elite Sports Medicine) are the keys to preventing future problems in the upper back, lower back, and neck.

Elite Sports Medicine offers five chiropractic clinics that correct posture in Los Angeles County: Woodland Hills, Los Angeles (LAX), Lancaster, Montebello, and West LA.
