Posture Correction

Posture Correction in the Melbourne CBD

Here at our Melbourne Chiropractic clinic, many of our patients initially come to see us because they have poor posture. In many cases they know their posture isn’t ideal, but they are not sure where to begin: posture braces, exercises, stretches or receiving treatment.

Fortunately, we are able to provide effective posture correction and rounded shoulders solutions, tailored to your needs. To begin, we first look for the exact areas causing your problem. We then adjust and correct your spine alignment, allowing you to engage muscles that have been overcompensating over the years.

As part of our approach, we will also advise you on how to implement an ongoing management and care plan that you can take home with you. With our help and support, you will hopefully be able to maintain a good posture for many years to come.

The consequences of having poor posture

Did you know that poor posture contributes to many back and neck conditions? Consistently poor posture will lead to your joints and soft tissues adapting to the new “normal”, which makes correction more difficult the longer it goes on. The consequences of poor posture include:

  • Discomfort and back pain
  • Lack of mobility and reduced flexibility
  • Repeated injuries in sport as a result of muscle imbalances or weakness
  • Stiff joints
  • Core muscle weakness leading to incontinence
  • Tight joints or muscles, especially in the chest, shoulder and hip areas

Chiropractic solutions for posture correction and rounded shoulders

Chiropractic care is a crucial step in the initial diagnosis and treatment of poor posture and rounded shoulders. However, one of the most vital steps for your future wellbeing is a good management plan, one that provides you with the right exercises needed to strengthen the right muscles, so your posture remains appropriately positioned and you can minimise the chances of reverting back to old habits.

What to expect from your posture correction treatment

Generally, your first posture correction treatment will last up to 30 minutes and can be done straight after your initial examination. Most of our patients experience relief from their very first treatment. Our chiropractors’ gentle yet effective alignment techniques are suitable for everyone and anyone – from children, to athletes, seniors and everyone in between.
