The spine and back are the core of the musculoskeletal system. When any element of it is thrown out of balance, misalignments and subluxations occur. This can lead to pinched nerves, loss of mobility and a host of other issues.

The spine is also the hub of the central nervous system. Issues of the back and spine invariably lead to related issues of the limbs. Back and spine problems can even cause headaches and other nervous system imbalances. Fortunately, chiropractic care can assist with correcting all of these issues.

Good Posture Central to Musculoskeletal Functioning

Having good posture and form throughout your daily activities is key to having a strong musculoskeletal system. How you carry yourself and move throughout the day has a continual effect on the spine and back.

If there are imbalances in functioning, your system is not optimized and problems can radiate throughout the body. There is extraneous stress on the spine and resultant muscle strain and tension. This taxes the bones unnecessarily and can eventually throw them out of balance. Chronic pain and discomfort can result.

Consequences of Poor Posture

Having poor posture can lead to a range of musculoskeletal issues, including:

  • Disc injury
  • Vertebral imbalance
  • Lifting injuries
  • Work injuries
  • Overuse injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Chronic back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Limb or joint pain
  • Extremity numbness

How Spinal and Posture Screenings Can Help

Spine and posture screenings are professional diagnostic processes that allow for a focused spinal analysis. They bring a range of benefits, including:

  • Locate stress points
  • Find misalignments
  • Target the source of pain

A spinal and posture screening allows these issues to be pinpointed. An informed course of treatment is then possible to assist in resolving issues such as back pain, limb pain, extremity numbness, and headaches.
