Posture Correction Q & A

What is posture correction?

The expert chiropractic team at Makda Chiropractic Health Center uses holistic, innovative correction techniques to improve your posture and alleviate chronic pain associated with slouching. Correcting posture helps eliminate spinal misalignment and promotes better nerve energy flow. 

The Makda Chiropractic Health Center staff uses CBP or Chiropractic BioPhysics® techniques, which combine physiology, physics, biology, anatomy, and geometry, to identify the root cause of chronic pain and to treat your condition effectively. 

What causes poor posture?

Numerous factors can lead to poor posture, including:

  • Improper footwear
  • Genetics
  • Skeletal irregularities
  • Stress
  • Injuries
  • Chronic pain
  • Heavy technology use
  • Sitting or standing for prolonged periods
  • Muscle tension or weakness
  • Muscle spasms

Over time, as your body adjusts to poor posture, you may experience health issues in addition to pain, such as constipation, incontinence, and digestive problems. Proper spinal alignment is the key to optimal overall health and wellness.

Am I a good candidate for posture correction?

If you routinely slouch while driving, standing, or sitting at a computer, you’re likely a good candidate for posture correction at Makda Chiropractic Health Center – especially if poor posture is associated with an injury or chronic pain. 

Dr. Getachew and her team review your medical history, symptoms, and complete a comprehensive physical exam. They may use X-rays to pinpoint the root cause of poor posture or injuries and establish a treatment that best matches your unique needs.

What should I expect during posture correction?
