INVER GROVE HEIGHTS, Minn., May 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cahill Back & Neck Care Center has released information to raise awareness on how chiropractic care can help correct posture. Postural issues are at the root of many ailments, such as pain in the back, neck, hips, legs, and feet. Correcting posture thereby relieves pain in many areas of the body. Good posture also makes it easier to be physically active since it reduces muscle stiffness as well as general physical inefficiency.

It is well known that good posture is important for good health. Plenty of sources offer standard advice for maintaining it, such as to sit up straight. Newer advice generally revolves around the same theme, though it offers specifics such as to avoid craning the neck forward when texting and to avoid hunching over computer keyboards. Experts often say that it's a good idea to use specialized ergonomic furniture to make it easier to keep the back straight.

Unfortunately, it often takes more than following these tips to maintain good posture. This can be due to habit, but often, it's because the body is compensating for some existing misalignment or even an injury. Then, it's a good idea to get some help to bring everything back into its proper position.

"Chiropractic care helps return the body to its proper alignment. This makes it much easier to maintain good posture without the need to consciously think about it. We also recommend therapeutic exercises to strengthen the muscles involved in maintaining posture. For those whose muscles are too tight instead of too weak, we offer massage. Often, it takes a combination of two or three types of treatments to address the issues that contribute to stubborn postural problems," said Dr. Scott Stinson of Cahill Back & Neck Care Center.

Once postural problems are suitably addressed, patients can look forward to a reduction or elimination of pain and stiffness in the back as well as the weight-bearing parts of the body. Other benefits include a reduction of abnormal joint wear, decreased fatigue, and an overall improvement in mobility.

These improvements don't just help in the short-term. Reducing joint wear, for example, can help prevent arthritis down the road. Decreased fatigue makes it easier to exercise, and this will also bring both short- and long-term health benefits. For these reasons and more, it's a good idea to get chiropractic and other treatment for postural problems.
