Static vs. Dynamic Posture
Good posture is something that we all strive for, but it becomes challenging when certain activities strain our bodies. Fatigued muscles, stress, and hours of slouching impact the body’s ability to maintain good posture and actively work against this goal. Good posture involves more than simply standing tall. It’s an integral part of your health and wellness. Posture is defined as the body’s alignment and position while at rest or in motion. There are two types of posture:
- Static Posture – Static posture is the body’s posture at rest and is how we stand, sit, and lay.
- Dynamic Posture – Dynamic posture is the body’s position while moving and is how we walk, run, bend, and lift.
Achieving and maintaining good static and dynamic posture is crucial. While back pain is the most common ailment associated with poor posture, it can also cause headaches, arthritis, neck pain, and impact your circulation.
The health and position of your spine are fundamental components of good posture. As we navigate daily life, bad habits like inactivity and slouching can cause tension and muscle fatigue that contribute to poor posture. Fortunately, our Nassau County chiropractors can provide treatment to improve your posture and any painful symptoms. At Massapequa Pain Management & Rehabilitation, our chiropractors administer gentle, non-invasive chiropractic adjustments to reduce misalignments in the spine and other joints in the body. These adjustments can help:
- Correct postural imbalance.
- Reduce inflammation.
- Boost nervous system function.
- Improve function in affected joints.
Our chiropractors will work to correct postural imbalances and encourage your body to perform at its best, allowing you to support good posture.
