Your teacher was right; sit up straight! Unfortunately, with so many of us sitting at our desks and on couches at home for the majority of our waking lives, our posture and subsequently our health is deteriorating. Fortunately, our chiropractic clinic in Melbourne can help you win back in the fight against bad posture. But why should you care? As science shows, there are more advantages to be gained than simply looking more confident.
When you have a good posture, the benefits are numerous. You’ll have an increased range of motion, allowing for stretching and lengthening of your movements that lead to better performance. This isn’t just in relation to exercise like running and yoga, however; it also affects your internal organs. By standing correctly, you open up your chest which increases your lung capacity. Your intestines will also be more comfortable, letting your bowels move more freely. Studies show that even your brain has an improved ability to learn, feel less stress, and experience higher productivity.
It almost sounds too good to be true, but because good posture is the result of a well adjusted spine, and the spine connects the entire body, visiting a chiropractic clinic in Melbourne to improve your posture can bring health benefits to the entire body. Even common pains in the jaw that were once considered a dental-only problem are now understood to be lessened by standing and sitting properly.
