What Does Good Posture Entail?

Posture is the position in which you hold your body upright against gravity while standing, sitting, or lying down.

On the other hand, good posture is having the correct alignment of your body so that the least amount of strain is placed on your musculoskeletal system. This includes your spine, muscles, and ligaments.

When these structures are in proper alignment, you will move more efficiently and decrease your risk of injury.

There are a few things that you can look for in order to determine if you have good posture or not.

First, take a look at your ears, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles. They should all be in line with each other from the side view. From a front view your arms should equally and your head should be level.

If you find that you are not meeting these criteria, then it is likely that you have poor posture. 

Benefits of Having Correct Posture

There are many benefits of having a correct posture, some of which are:

  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Improved breathing
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved circulation
  • Reduced stress on your joints
  • Less pain in your back, neck, and shoulders
  • Better balance
  • Improved mental health
  • Increased confidence

Why is Correct Posture Important?

Your posture is important because it is the position from which all of your movements start. If you have poor posture, it can lead to muscle fatigue, joint pain, and even injuries.

Poor Posture

Poor posture is one of the most prevalent epidemics in today’s society. It can cause changes in your spinal structure, leading to pain and problems with muscles, discs, and joints.

We have noticed an increase in poor posture due to spending more time using computers and phones (which is why there's a condition called "text neck").

This puts your spine in an awkward position and causes you to hold your head forward. As a result, the muscles in your back and neck have to work harder to support your head, which can lead to muscle fatigue, tension headaches, and even migraines.

Daye Chiropractic provides the ideal treatment for correcting postural problems caused by natural changes in form. Our chiropractors have years of experience restoring people’s health and bettering their posture.

We are experts in identifying the underlying reasons for poor posture, developing treatments, and giving advice to combat bad posture. 

Underlying Cause of Poor Posture

It is not surprising for someone to not realize they have poor posture until it is too late. However, with some awareness and deliberate effort, we can help you with posterior concerns.

Some of the elements which can cause postural problems to include:

  • Occupational stress and poorly designed workspaces 
  • Jobs that require you to stand for long periods
  • Excessive use of Ipads, laptops, and smartphones
  • Carrying excessive weight
  • Poor sleeping habits
  • Genetics
  • Muscle tension or muscle weakness
  • Poor footwear

If you are concerned about your posture get in for a comprehensive exam sooner than later.

The sooner you act, the less damage there will be to reverse. In turn, this can make recovery times far shorter, reduces stress, and lessen pain.

Consequences of Poor Posture

Pain is one of the main consequences of poor posture.

Your body desires balance, and when you regularly place undue stress on your pelvis, back, neck, knees, shoulders, and hips, you will become out of balance.

Over time you may develop chronic pain conditions that you may attribute to getting older or some other condition when in truth, they are from your habit of poor posture.

How Daye Chiropractic Experts Help to Improve Posture

Good standing posture isn’t only something that enhances your image. It's important for both our physical and mental well-being to maintain proper posture.

It promotes proper alignment of the spine and joints, which reduces stress on the muscles and ligaments when you stand, sit, lay, or walk.

Chiropractic adjustments from Daye Chiropractic aim to re-align the spine so the body can heal itself. When the spine is out of alignment, it puts pressure on the nerves and causes pain.

Aligning the spine relieves pressure on the nerves, allowing the muscles to relax. This leads to a decrease in pain and an increase in range of motion.

Biomechanical analysis

Our chiropractor analyzes your posture, walking stance, and other biomechanical features to determine the type and severity of the problems before deciding on the appropriate course of action.

This may require x-rays or other imaging tests to get a clear picture of what’s going on.

Postural Muscles Exercises

A chiropractor uses a combination of stretches and exercises that strengthen the muscles and gradually realign the spine and affected body parts. These can be short-term or ongoing stretches like:

  1. Shoulder blades squeeze

  2. Thoracic extension

  3. Reverse fly on an exercise ball

  4. Doorway chest stretches

  5. Pectoralis minor release

  6. Child’s pose

  7. Cobra pose

  8. Knee to chest stretch

  9. Cat-cow stretch

  10. Pelvis tilting

These exercises should be done every day to see results. The number of repetitions and sets will depend on your individual condition and would be determined by the chiropractor. 


When you come in for your appointment, our chiropractor will develop a personalized treatment plan that also includes recommendations for changes to your lifestyle and work habits to help improve your posture.


You will also be given exercises and stretches to do at home to complement the treatments you receive in our office.


If you’re ready to take the first step toward better posture and improved health, schedule an appointment with us today! We will develop a personalized treatment plan to help improve your posture and alleviate your pain.

Ergonomic advice

We also provide ergonomic advice to help you improve your posture at work or at home. This may include recommendations for changes to your workspace, ergonomic devices, or how to sit, stand, and move throughout the day.


Deep tissue massage can significantly reduce pain while supporting the idea of regaining a full sense of motion. Loosening the tissues and muscles can significantly enhance the results of postural rehabilitation.
