Aging is a natural process that does not happen all at once but occurs as an individual goes through life. As we mature in age, we are prone to change our posture. Some common causes that attribute to this are: trauma, computer ergonomics, backpacks, mobile devices, television and even the way we sleep! When a person is not positioned correctly, they are at a greater risk for developing postural abnormalities that can negatively impact their activities of daily living as well as other bodily functions and mobility.
The best ways to keep your body in its optimal shape is usually by natural methods, such as weight bearing exercise, nutritious diet, getting a good nights rest and keeping a positive attitude. Chiropractic care is a natural conservative approach that helps encourage whole body wellness and prevent problems that can cause pain and other symptoms down the road. Osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease and degenerative joint disease are all considered age related diseases that can be prevented or slowed down with posture correction. Dr. Chait has been trained in the Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP) technique that concentrates on posture correction. CBP emphasizes optimal posture and spinal alignment as the primary goal of chiropractic care, while documenting improvements in pain and symptoms.
