Spinal & Postural Screenings

Spinal Alignment and Posture

Proper alignment of the spine is essential for optimum health and comfort during your life. Your skeletal structure is the frame that all else rides upon. Your spinal column is the main highway for your nervous system. To experience misalignment or malfunction in either of these areas can mean pain and other problems.

Posture usually refers to the position or bearing of the body, meaning how you hold your body when you stand, sit or move. Poor posture creates extra stress on your spine and chronic muscle tension. When you don’t hold your body up correctly with good posture, your back muscles are supporting your upper body instead of the bones in your spine. This causes muscle tension and pain.

There are many health issues that may seem unrelated to alignment and posture, but whose symptoms are alleviated when proper chiropractic adjustments are made. The first step in finding where you may need adjustments is a Spinal and Postural Screening.

Importance of Screenings

Screenings are diagnostic procedures that involve a direct analysis of your spine. This procedure allows the chiropractors at Caring Touch Pain Relief to pin-point stress points, misalignments and other issues. Pin-pointing the problems helps determine what treatment is necessary.

Spinal and Postural Screenings are an important part of determining your current health and finding the cause of many of your current complaints. Neck pain, back pain, body pain, headaches and more can all be caused by continuous stress on the spine. It’s important to have an experienced chiropractor conduct a screening that will combine spine analysis with posture analysis and unlock important health information.
