Taking Care of Your Spinal Health
The spine consists of multiple working parts that help to support your body as you move everyday. Made up of 220 ligaments, 100 joints, 33 individual vertebrae and around 120 muscles, your spine plays a complicated but incredibly important role in how you function.
Your spine is also integral to protecting your nervous system (your brain, spinal cord and nerves). Health issues associated with your spine may contribute to symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, joint pain and muscle tension.
Although poor spinal health is common and often treatable, it is never too late to start taking care of your spinal health by addressing your musculoskeletal symptoms.

Maintain Good Posture
It is common that people seek Chiropractic care with the intention of improving and maintaining good posture. You can further help yourself by trying to maintain good posture habits.
Having good posture when standing and sitting may help minimise unnecessary pressure on your spine and help to keep it in a neutral position.
Examples of good posture include sitting and standing up straight and tall, having a level head and keeping your feet shoulder width apart.
For more tips on correct positioning when sitting and standing, get in contact us today by requesting a booking. Find out what happens on your first visit here. We are located conveniently in the Caringbah area, in Cronulla.
