How important is posture?
10 May 2016
Did you know new research shows that people with an increased thoracic kyphosis (the curve at the top of your back) had a 44% greater rate of mortality than those with a normally functioning spine?
In addition to being cosmetically undersirable, this change in posture is associated with restrictive pulmonory disease (reduced lung function), poor physical function and atherosclerosis (hardending of blood vessels). All of which are major risk factors for stroke and heart attack, two of the leading causes of death in the UK.
Chiropractic has been shown to be one of the best ways to restore posture and maintain a healthy spine. Chiropractors do this by adjusting subluxations (dysfunctional joint segemnts) and getting your body moving properly again. Its never too late to start moving properly and start getting your life back!
