Chiropractic & Working Posture

Do you:

  • Get discomfort from spending most of your day seated or driving?
  • Catch yourself in uncomfortable postures during the work day?
  • Feel like you stiffen up when you sit down after a busy day?
  • Find you lose concentration or energy at work due to physical
    discomfort?

Our spine is designed to move for most of the day in activities that use both sides of the body evenly. Unfortunately not many jobs meet this criteria and the result can be poor posture, injuries and pain.

Frequently the underlying cause is an imbalance of the spine and nerves
(subluxation) and it is unlikely to get better on its own (1). Medication may
reduce the pain but it often doesn’t solve the real problem.

The good news is help is at hand. Spinal imbalances are what our Chiropractors specialise in identifying and correcting.

We want to improve your posture, reduce your discomfort and keep you like that so that your workday is more enjoyable and productive.

At your first visit, we will review your history and do a thorough examination to see if imbalance is affecting your working posture. If it is, we will begin working on correcting it. But we don’t stop there, we examine the rest of your spine and body to see if its contributing to your imbalance and look at your lifestyle for what might have caused the imbalance in the first place. We help you focus on making supportive changes that can include workplace ergonomics, exercise, nutrition, posture and wellbeing.
