Posture Correction Q & A
What is good posture?
Good posture refers to the correct alignment of your body, while you’re standing, sitting, or lying down. Proper alignment of your body puts the least amount of strain on your muscles and ligaments and requires muscle strength and flexibility, joint mobility, and the right balance of postural on both sides of your spine. Your spine is the housing system of the spinal cord and the nervous system which is the electrical circuit of your entire body that controls the functions of organs, hormones, and the immune system.
Poor posture habits can develop over time, creating neuromusculoskeletal imbalances that affect your overall health and wellbeing. With posture correction at Loudoun Ideal Chiropractic, Dr. Miok helps you become more aware of your posture habits and designs a program to reestablish a better alignment in your spine to restore and strengthen the nervous system in your body.
