Notice if one shoulder is higher than the other or if the head tilts to one side. Both might be indications of the types of problems that can be treated with chiropractic care.

A typical problem may be a forward leaning head. Besides being a source of fatigue, this is often a typical sign of neurological compromise in the neck, shoulders, and into the arms and wrist.

Without sensible posture your body is working harder to keep itself upright and may have corresponding symptoms such as pain, joint stiffness, and consequently decreased range of motion.  A majority of neck and back problems are a result of tight achy muscles caused by years of unhealthy posture.

So how do you get bad posture?

Several factors can contribute to bad posture including:

  • accidents, injuries, and falls
  • poor sleep support (mattress and pillows)
  • excessive weight
  • poor vision
  • stress
  • flat feet & improper shoes
  • muscles weakness and imbalances
  • bad habits in sitting, standing, sleeping, etc.
  • poor self esteem
  • poorly designed workspace

What happens if I don’t take care of my posture?
If your posture progressively becomes worse many adverse effects may result such as:

  • low back pain – most common
  • headaches, achy shoulder muscles, arms and hands
  • decreased lung capacity
  • decreased range of motion
  • irregular bowel function
  • jaw pain
  • contribution to carpal tunnel syndrome

TESTIMONIALS

“At first I wasn’t sure if Chiropractic work was for me, but my headaches were unbearable and my ankle was killing me so I decided to give it a try. The results were amazing !! My headaches were gone for good within a week. Its amazing how great I feel!”
–Pam S. Mississauga
“I came here as a “Chiroprosceptic”. After several visits, I feel much better than I have in a long time. My posture is improved, and so is my range of motion. I even feel that I can perform better and there was never any pressure to sign up for an extended treatment plan.”
–Jean Pierre G. Mississauga
“I am very pleased with the results I have experienced after visiting Dr. Patel and I plan to continue maintaining my health with Yoga and regular adjustments.”
–Sam.F., Los Angeles
“Although I’d considered daily headaches as something I’d have to grin and bear, three months of Chiropractic care quickly rid me of that notion. Not only has my pain killer intake decreased by leaps and bounds, but arms no longer go numb after sitting at my computer for several hours and I find my sleep to be more restful at night.”
–Erika B., Mississauga
After 2 weeks with Dr. Patel my hip and knee were perfect! I use orthotics in my shoes and have a pair of Sandal-thotics that I use almost everyday in the summer. My legs and feet no longer hurt or sting at the end of each teaching day.
–Marie M., Mississauga
“The first time that I decided to visit a Chiropractor was when my neck and lower back was giving me pain because of an accident that I was in. Thanks to Dr. Patel I am feeling like myself again after two months of adjustments. Dr. Patel makes you feel like a friend when you visit his office. I am really happy with the results. Thank you once more Dr. Patel.”
–Derek T., Markham

WHAT TO EXPECT?

Your First Visit to The Health First Group

The concept of your consultation is to discuss your health goals and formulate a health plan according to your needs. A further intensive examination will help us identify the reasons and solutions for your problem.  After we discuss an arrangement of action, we begin your treatment right away and facilitate you with the right approach to better health.
Regular Visits to The Health First Group

Treatment frequency can vary depending on your condition and needs.  Our goals for correcting postural problems embrace restoring your range of motion, increasing flexibility, and strengthening weak muscles as quickly as possible. We can demonstrate yoga poses specific to your condition so that you can manage your care independently alongside your clinical treatments.  The more you do your exercises outside of the clinic; the faster you will progress towards your recovery.

Once you’re pain free, the trick to maintaining your posture is to continue with your maintenance by performing your recommended exercises.
