Everyone in today’s day and age uses electronic devices like televisions, computers, smartphones, tablets and more. Overuse of these devices unfortunately causes slumped and bad posture in the neck, shoulder, and back. Poor posture may seem like no big deal, but can actually be the cause of your pain.
Poor posture creates intense strain on the neck, shoulders, and back. This is what raises the risk for extreme headaches and overall pain. Now for some good news: it is possible to improve your posture, but it will not come without any costs. In this article, our best reviewed chiropractor in Audubon Park will be giving you specific neck exercises and chiropractic care tips that you can use to better your posture.
Let’s begin with some research. A study was conducted in 2018 where those with forward head posture were split into two groups where group one performed scapular stabilization exercises and group two performed neck stabilization exercises. Both groups did the exercises for 30 minutes three times per week for four weeks. The study concluded that participants in both groups had significant improvements in their overall posture!
Other studies have shown the same results as the 2018 study. In a different study, high schoolers with forward head posture performed these scapular and neck stabilization exercises. The results were amazing. The students kept up good posture for about four months after performing the exercises.
A recent study done in 2019 had 60 women with neck pain and forward head posture perform manual therapies and stabilizing exercises. Those women in the combination group and the stabilization exercise group alone reported large improvements in head posture, pain reduction, and overall improved function. The results showed best in the combination group. The authors of the study as well as the best reviewed chiropractor in Audubon Park conclude that manual therapy, such as chiropractic care, is really beneficial and important in order to fully improve neck pain and forward head posture.
