Chiropractic Wichita KS Poor Posture

Have you ever been at a crowded event and noticed that about 90% of the people there with even a speck of grey hair walk around like they’re the “Hunchback of Notre Dame”? There’s a saying that goes something like this “the closer your head is to the ground, the closer you are to the grave”. If we don’t begin to remedy this issue, the future isn’t going to look so great for our poor little hunchbacked society in Wichita. When we look at this graphic we can see why the old saying rings true.

Normally the average human head weighs about 12 pounds. However, with each inch our head is shifted forward due to poor posture, a massive amount of stress is put on our spine. Gravity and physics are rude reminders of why eighty percent of Americans have experienced back pain. Great posture is essential to a happy and healthy life, so what can we do to battle our achy breaky backs?

As most of us know, there are many different things that we should be doing in order to better our health. It’s when life gets in the way that we find ourselves stuck in a rut of pain and dysfunction. If you are ready to fight back and begin to make the necessary changes in order to progress towards a state of wellness, these videos by Optimal Wellness on stretching and strengthening muscles in order to better your posture are a great place to start.

These home exercises should take less than fifteen minutes to complete and are a game changer when it comes to bettering posture. If you are still struggling to get out of pain after doing these exercises at home, here are three videos on how we can help you achieve better posture in our office.

At Optimal Wellness in Wichita we offer many different services. When in conjunction with one another our treatments create a synergistic effect that allows the body to heal.  The foundation of our treatment starts with a chiropractic adjustment. An adjustment is where Dr. Hands uses specific techniques which help a misaligned vertebra to be redirected into their proper placement in the spine. In order to help achieve a level of progress, we also offer functional fitness where we work on specific exercises to help accomplish one’s goals. These exercises strengthen muscles around the spine making adjustments last longer and help to better posture in order to avoid further pain. Our treatment plan doesn't stop there. In order to promote further healing we also offer therapies like ultrasound, decompression, muscle stimulation, traction tables and massage therapy.  Our highly trained massage therapist can help release tight muscles and help the body naturally produce endorphins and nutrients, leaving you feeling like a new person. Apart from weight loss, our dietary choices are a key factor in how well our body can repair itself. Nutrition is one of the most challenging, but most important obstacles to conquer in order to start feeling like your body is a temple instead of a shack. Our nutrition coach can help you break bad habits and equip you with practical knowledge needed to rejuvenate your health. It all starts with chiseling away at bad habits and replacing them with good practices.  As a part of our Optimal Wellness family, we’ll guide you on your journey to your optimal health.
