Correct Poor Posture that Causes Pain at Spinal Solutions in St. Augustine

Correcting poor posture is more than just an esthetic issue. Having poor posture can also lead to a lot of the aches and pains that we see in our St. Augustine chiropractic office these days. In fact, poor posture may account for about 80 percent of back problems in Americans, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Whether you are dealing with musculoskeletal aches and pains, or you simply want to instill better posture for a healthier body, our chiropractor Dr. Sisak and the team at Spinal Solutions Health and Wellness can help.

The Benefits of Good Posture

First, let’s look at all the upsides of posture correction and maintaining proper posture. Besides the fact that you’ll look and feel more confident, good posture also offers a host of benefits including:

  • Proper alignment
  • Less pressure and stress placed on the ligaments
  • Reduced risk for injuries
  • Less wear and tear on muscles and joints
  • Better digestion
  • Improved mood

If your shoulders are hunched or your back is rounded over, these are telltale signs of poor posture. Don’t worry! Our highly trained chiropractic team at Spinal Solutions in St. Augustine can help correct your posture to prevent back pain and other common problems.

Causes of Poor Posture

There are many reasons why someone might be dealing with poor posture. Weak or tight muscles are often to blame; however, past injuries can also give us insight into posture-related issues. Pregnancy, weight gain, stress, and even the shoes you wear can also play a role in your posture.

Regardless of the cause, poor posture is something that we need to address in order to reduce your risk for injuries and long-term pain. Chiropractic treatment is ideal for posture correction.

Turning to a Chiropractor

Once we’ve examined your posture and asked you questions about your health and lifestyle, we will have a clearer picture of what’s going on and how to best correct your posture for optimal health and wellbeing. One of the most common ways our chiropractor tackles posture correction is with spinal adjustments. During adjustments, Dr. Sisak will apply gentle pressure to areas of the spine to realign the vertebra and joints, while also taking pressure off the ligaments, joints, and nerves.

Target Certain Muscle Groups

If you are dealing with weak or tight muscles, one of our focuses will be to perform muscle-releasing techniques as well as educating the patient on proper strengthening exercises to fix any soft tissue imbalances within the body while helping to strengthen weak muscles to improve posture.


Having patients perform strengthening and stretching exercises every day can help to rebuild and retrain the muscles to prevent tension and tightness, which can lead to bad posture. Rehabilitation and these specific exercises can be a great way to both release tension and strengthen weaker muscles, which can greatly improve posture for the long term.

Good posture matters for your health. If you would like to learn about posture correction or correct bad habits you’re already are of, chiropractic treatment can provide solutions and ergonomic strategies for a healthier lifestyle and a healthier you.
