Poor posture occurs when your spine is positioned in unnatural positions during which the curves are pronounced, causing the joints, muscles, and vertebrae to remain in stressful positions. This results in a build-up of pressure on these tissues. Many people suffer from the adverse effects of bad posture, but regrettably, they do not change the factors propagating the problem. Dr. Walter E. Mendoza Chiropractor P.C. provides treatment for the pain and aches that come from poor posture. If you live in or around Freeport, NY, contact us today to schedule a consultation.

How Our Chiropractor Treats Poor Posture
Good posture can assist you in avoiding back pain and injuries. Whether you are being troubled by shoulder or back pain or you would like to fix your poor posture once and for all, chiropractic care is an excellent choice for treating poor posture.
Before our chiropractor creates a treatment plan, we will perform a thorough examination and take a medical history to get a better picture of your health. Dr. Mendoza will perform adjustments to your shoulders and spine to get you into the perfect position for good posture. These adjustments reduce tension in the surrounding muscles and ease postural pain. We will likely use muscle release and strengthening exercises to alleviate the imbalance in your soft tissues. We will also provide a few at-home stretching and rehabilitation exercises that you can do between visits to ensure the best results from your treatments.
