Poor Posture Can Harm Your Health

Everyone knows how poor posture can contribute to debilitating back pain, but not too many are aware of the adverse affects of poor posture on the critical organs including the heart, lungs and stomach. RiverRidge Chiropractic in Mankato stresses the importance of spinal health and maintaining a healthy posture even if you’re not in pain or suffering any obvious symptoms.

Poor posture, which can be caused by something as obvious as a car accident to something as unnoticeable as poor sleeping habits will lead to spinal misalignment. Such misalignments can then be responsible for wreaking havoc on your body, in places you wouldn’t imagine.

Similar to how a kink in a garden hose hinders the flow of water, affecting the amount of life saving nourishment your garden receives, spinal misalignments hinder the flow of critical nerve energy from the spinal cord to the body, affecting the health and function of the cardiovascular, respiratory and digestive systems among others.

Most people with poor posture and spinal misalignments will begin to notice changes in their body and their health at some point or another. Physical changes such as slouching are obvious tell tale signs that there is something seriously wrong with the spine. For others, back pain, neck pain and headaches often manifest, signaling nerve flow interference due to some degree of spinal misalignment.

Of course not everyone with poor posture or a misaligned spine will suffer from physical deformities or experience any noticeable pain or discomfort. Instead, they will notice health issues, which may seem completely unrelated to the spine. These symptoms include heart palpitations, high blood pressure, acid reflux, allergies and bouts with asthma – all rather serious health conditions that stem from diminished nerve flow to critical organs causing organ dysfunction.

Poor lifestyle habits, accidents, falls or injuries are common, so instead of ignoring them, it is recommended to take a much more proactive role and seek the professional help of a chiropractor to ensure the spine is healthy and functioning optimally.

A Chiropractor will help restore the spine back to proper alignment, promoting normal nerve flow energy to the entire body, including the heart, lungs and digestive system.
