Chiropractic Care for Postural Restoration and Ergonomics
Our goal of care here at Minnesota Movement is to fix WHY you are experiencing issues with your posture. This means going after the cause of your symptoms - not just the symptoms.
Treatment for Pain associated with Posture usually consists of:
Daily tips/tricks to alter posture
RockTape for biomechanical feedback
Spinal Adjustments when warranted
Manual Muscle Therapy and Active Release Technique to down-regulate tight muscle groups
Corrective Exercises for Posture
‘Good’ Posture doesn’t just mean someone telling you to “sit up straight” either. Good Posture extends all the way down to your pelvis. Often times many cases of Low Back Pain are associated with what we call Anterior Pelvic Tilt. This means that your pelvis is rounded forwards and thus causing a lot of stress on your low back muscles.
Whether you work at a desk all day, drive a vehicle for hours on end, or spend too much time texting or scrolling through instagram - your posture can take a beating from too much of this.
Dr. Reid has always said, “the only bad posture is one we spend too much time in.” Meaning that if we sit with our head falling off our shoulders for 60 hours a week, that’s going to be a problem. Think about most corporate America workers. But so would standing on your feet for 60 hours a week - like nurses, flight attendants, and assembly line workers.
