Why is Good Posture So Important?

Why is Good Posture Important - Windsor Ontario ChiropractorsGood posture means good health. Are you surprised? Remember that our spines are central to our structure. The spine is the ‘relay station’ of our central and peripheral nervous systems.

 

Good posture distributes the force of gravity through our body, ensuring that no structure is overstressed. Good posture helps our bodies be more resistant to the day to day stressors we experience in life.

Ideal postural alignment balances the distribution of body weight, which enables our muscles and ligaments to perform as designed. Proper posture also allows for improved circulation, digestion, nervous system and organ functioning.

Many conditions occur as a result of our bodies being held in an unnatural position. Problems with back pain, neck and chronic muscle strain can all be reduced by proper posture.

Good posture is essential to good health. When the spine is properly aligned our bodies function as it is meant to. 

If you’re looking to improve your posture, please call us for a postural assessment – 519-258-8544

Over The Counter Pain Relievers

Are over the counter pain relievers safe Many believe that ‘Over the Counter’ or OTC drugs are not dangerous as they can be purchased without a prescription.

This simply isn’t true. There can be adverse effects of OTCs.

For pain ‘relief’ common types are Acetaminophen, such as Tylenol and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin, Advil and Aleve. While these medications can provide temporary ‘relief’ from pain, even these OTC drugs can cause problems, consider:

  • Taking a higher than the recommended dosage, which can put the user at risk or an overdose.
  • Taking the medication more frequently or for a longer period of time than necessary, which can put the user at risk or an overdose.
  • Possible adverse effects such nausea and dizziness. Also more serious effects such as stomach bleeds, liver damage and ulcers.
  • Adverse reactions with vitamins, other OTCs, prescription drugs and alcohol.
  • It’s also possible to cause more damage to your body while the pain reliever ‘masks’ the problem.

When we hear advertisements for these OTC drugs, we often hear expressions like:

  • Control pain
  • Manage pain
  • Relief from pain

What about treating the cause of the pain?

OTC pain relievers only cover up or ‘mask’ the pain – they simply don’t treat the cause of the pain.

The pain is the symptom of the problem.

Treat the cause of the pain

Naturally, with therapies such as:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Cold LASER Therapy
  • Soft tissue manipulation
  • Ultrasound
  • Massage

Change the focus to prevention

  • Behaviour modification (avoiding the action that caused the pain)
  • Stretching
  • Exercise
  • Maintenance care (regular chiropractic adjustments)

We hope that you can understand how important it is to treat the cause of your pain and work towards getting and keeping you healthy proactively.
