Posture Facts in Ashland OH

According to the American Journal of Pain Management, "Posture affects and moderates every physiological function, from breathing to nervous system function, and despite the considerable evidence that posture affects physiology and function, the significant influence of posture on health is not addressed by most physicians."

According to a study published in 2013, a group of individuals with the poorest posture revealed a 393% higher rate of disability compared to a group of people with good posture. Those people that displayed the poorest posture suffered from nearly a 400% greater chance of losing the ability to perform one or more daily living activities.

How do you see your life in the next 10-20 years?  Healthy, independent living, enjoying retirement and maybe grandkids, or living in a nursing home?  Sadly, many people are forced into nursing home living because they did not invest in their health at an early age.  Let's be clear; more medications do not equate to more health.   A survey across the elderly population revealed that the most sought after desire was the ability to live independently. Posture plays a significant role for both genders in determining quality of life as your body ages. Bottom line: if you're neglecting your posture you're neglecting your health and decreasing your quality of life.  Posture serves as an exterior window to the spine. Poor spinal health will result in premature disability.

According to the American Journal of Pain Management, posture plays an immeasurable role in every aspect of optimal nervous system health. The AJPM further determines that medical professionals either do not address or do not fully understand just how large of a role proper posture plays in the function of the human body.

Specific chiropractic directly influences posture deviations by improving spine and nervous system health. Implementing regular Chiropractic adjustments plays a vital role in improving quality of life while reducing the risk of becoming dependent on others.  So, what are you waiting for?  Don't wait until it is too late.  If you live in Ashland, Richland, or surrounding counties, call today to schedule a chiropractic evaluation.
