If the vertebrae in the spine line up correctly, then you will have a lot less pain. Chiropractic adjustments are very helpful to align the spinal vertebrae, but when a person goes home their pain level depends a lot on their posture habits and choices.
Postures For Success
Sit on a straight back chair
Put your feet flat on a book box or stool
Knees should be slightly higher than the hips
The back should be supported.
If you need more spinal support add a small rolled up towel in the small of your back.
Sit up straight.
Keep reading material at eye level.
Feet flat on a book box or stool when sitting.
Towel roll behind back
Postures That Sabotage
Sitting on a cushy couch with a rounded spine can injure your spine.
Putting your feet up on the coffee table with crossed ankles will make it even worse.
This position will bulge your disc towards the spinal cord.
I have been in the healing field for over 30 years. I currently treat patients of all ages using an integration of soft tissue work, exercise, and SCENAR anti-inflammation biofeedback work to provide a unique bio-mechanical approach to gently align the spine, relieve pain, relax the muscles and strengthen the body.
