Having a good posture is very important for proper body function. Dr. Brett Stefan and the team at Farabaugh Chiropractic provide postural rehabilitation to patients of all ages as a way to alleviate back pain, neck pain and more.
Why Good Posture is Important
Posture is defined as the position in which a person holds their body during certain activities. This means activities outside of just standing or sitting. There are many benefits to good posture aside from the fact that it provides relief from back pain, neck pain and other types of pain. Good posture not only helps a person’s body function better but provides the body with a better mechanical advantage than a body that has poor posture. Good posture also works to reduce strain on parts of the body that are more prone to injury.
Postural Rehabilitation at Farabaugh Chiropractic
Bad posture can come from a number of different factors. Bad posture is something that can just develop gradually over time. Bad posture can also be habitual, meaning that a person tends to slump more when they are tired, bogged down or mentally drained. Some people may also have bad posture because they are overcompensating for pain they are feeling or they have poor joint and spinal flexibility.
When a patient comes in to see Dr. Stefan and Farabaugh Chiropractic team, a thorough full body examination will be performed to determine where the poor posture stems from. Upon analysis, Dr. Stefan will put together a postural rehabilitation plan that consists of different therapies and exercise that are specific to the unique needs of the patient.
