A great place to start is to notice postural distortions that may show up in the head, neck, and shoulders:
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
