What is "Good Posture" and Why is it so Important to Good Health?

Couple sittingWe have all heard ” Sit up straight” or “Stop slouching” from either grandparents or parents. They are absolutely right. Your everyday posture plays a major part in having a good healthy lifestyle. Basically posture refers to the body’s alignment and positioning with respect to the ever-present force of gravity.

Whether we are sitting, standing or lying down gravity exerts a force on our joints, ligaments and muscles. Bad posture leads to degeneration within joints that leads to arthritis. Having good posture whether you are sitting watching the election, working out and using proper form or having good ergonomics while working at home is a good start to promoting good posture. Here at Discover Chiropractic in Castro Valley we make sure to detect any improper posture habitats and develop a unique program to help restore the proper posture in result making you feel better throughout your daily lifestyle.

If you have any concerns about your posture feel free to ask one of our Castro Valley Chiropractors here at Discover Chiropractic.
