Willoughby Family Chiropractic: The Important of Posture

We recently wrote about Helping You Understand the Importance of Posture, mentioning that…

… over 80% of Canadians will suffer from back pain at some point in their lifetime. It’s the unfortunate truth. As a Langley Chiropractic Care facility, Willoughby Family Chiropractic Clinic is here to help individuals from all age groups and walks of life manage their spinal health.

Physical injuries can happen at any age, but without the proper posture, long-term effects can build up. In fact, poor posture can literally alter your physical structure and bring about chronic pain including headaches, fatigue and muscle aches.

These ailments are just a handful of the outcomes of poor posture, leading all the way to a lack of mobility. Which our Willoughby Family Chiropractic Clinic is here to help you prevent.

Whether choosing to come in for an adjustment, take advantage of our Massage Therapy, or address your foot health via our partnership with Kiwi Orthotics – we are here to help ensure you have a spring in your step this April.

April Showers Bring More Than May Flowers

As the saying goes “April Showers Bring May Flowers”; but in the Fraser Valley, April also brings more blue skies for us eager west coasters – and with that, more outdoor activities.

Regardless of your activity of choice, even the most basic reality of standing requires good posture for optimal health – as discussed on medlineplus.com.

Their Guide to Good Posture Suggests You…

  • Stand up straight and tall.
  • Keep your shoulders back.
  • Pull your stomach in.
  • Put your weight mostly on the balls of your feet.
  • Keep your head level.
  • Let your arms hang down naturally at your sides.
  • Keep your feet about shoulder-width apart.
