Posture is soooo boring!!
What? Who said that?…. Okay, you’re right, every time I begin a conversation on this topic I see the eye’s roll back and the ADD kick in.
I tell you what, give me 60 seconds to change your life forever, posturally speaking of course 😉 haha…
Take a look at this diagram…. Which one are you?
I’m convinced that most back problems stem from poor posture, which began in 1st Grade, slouching in our desks, day in and day out, for hours on end year after year….. Add to that injuries, car rides, etc…. and whala, a national epidemic of horrible posture and back problems.
But I digress, that’s all in the past, the real question is; what do we do now, how do we get good posture back and and most importantly its already been 60 seconds and my posture is not changed forever…… Or is it???? hmmmmmm….. LOL
Here’s the promised 4 keys to restoring your posture back to normal…
Step 1: You’ll need to partner with a chiropractor, and not just any chiropractor, but one who has specific training in either the Chiropractic Biophysics or Petibon Techniques. They will want to do both a physical evaluation, take X-rays to measure the specifics of your postural problems and determine how best to restore it back to as near normal as possible.
Step 2: Follow through with their treatment plan. Posture can’t be exercised back into alignment, its not, at its core, a muscle issue, its a ligament issue.
Step 3: Improve your nutrition both in what you cook as well as daily supplementation
Step 4: Once an hour, throughout the day, perform the Brugger Relief Exercise (as seen in the following diagram)
Roll the Chest up towards the ceiling, squeeze the shoulder blades together and roll your head back. Hold this position for 10 sec then relax, first by letting the head come to neutral and releasing the shoulder blades but keep your chest rolled up.
Feels amazing doesn’t it? 🙂
Your posture, while not a very sexy topic, is one of the most important components of health, on the same level of good nutrition and hydration.
Yeah, its that important!
