Posture Correction

on the Sunshine Coast

Are you tired of slouching and feeling pain in your neck and back? With over 34 years of experience, our team of chiropractors can help you stand tall again, relieve your pain and regain your confidence.

How does poor posture affect our health?

Poor posture is more common that you might think. In a recent study, 65% of nearly 600,000 screened children and adolescents had incorrect posture.

On top of spine related issues such as back pain, scoliosis or rounded shoulders, the symptoms of bad posture extend to conditions like poor balance, fatigue, headaches, incontinence, constipation, heartburn and breathing difficulties. Studies also suggest that posture influences mental health. So it’s a big deal.

The main causes of poor posture are bad habits such as slouching or underutilizing some muscles. Therefore, people sitting for long periods of time or carrying heavy objects are more likely to experience postural problems.

The good news is that poor posture can be altered by ensuring that we interact with our environment ergonomically.

Through an extensive postural analysis, including gait and footwear, and with targeted adjustments, exercises and lifestyle recommendations, we will empower you to stand tall, move freely and improve your posture.
