5 Reasons: Why Good Posture Is Good For Your Health

Posture is the body’s position when standing, sitting, walking, or lying down. Right posture is also required when carrying out other physical activities like exercising. Good posture is when the whole body is correctly aligned, distributing the weight evenly in the body.

Good Posture For Health

Training yourself to achieve good posture has other benefits aside from looking good. Here are five reasons why good posture is right for your health:

  • Reduced back and muscle pain. A correctly aligned body prevents pressure in the spine and reduces the occurrences of back and muscle pain.
  • Lesser headaches. Bad posture contributes to nerve compression that can cause headaches.
  • Improves blood flow. Blood circulates easier when the body is aligned rightly.
  • Impedes the wear-and-tear of joints. Joints wear down due to natural causes, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t delay it. Less pressure is applied to the joints and ligaments with proper posture.
  • Boost energy levels. Good posture allows the body to use the muscles more efficiently, hindering fatigue.

Upper cervical chiropractic care helps in keeping the body aligned. Upon visiting a specific chiropractor, nerve tests and digital x-rays are conducted. If the diagnosis shows that your posture can be corrected with chiropractic care, the upper cervical chiropractor will deliver the needed adjustments and other types of care. This process will immediately address the misalignment in the body and restores the nervous system function, benefiting your whole well-being.

Stress: How It Destroys Your Immune System

Stress is inevitable, may it be the good or bad kind. Even the most mundane part of your life causes stress, like being stuck in a traffic jam. There are also times when stress stays for a long time and causes a person to be ill. With the pandemic going on, it is vital to strengthen your immune system more than you did pre-pandemic. In going for that extra mile in boosting your immunity, stress should be managed healthily; otherwise, it will take its toll on you.

STRESS AND THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

The immune system is the body’s very own defense system against illnesses caused by bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens. The cells and tissues in the immune system distinguish foreign tissues that need to be eliminated. Lymphocytes and phagocytes are white blood cells that comprise our immune cells. 

When the mind is under stress, cortisol is released. Cortisol is the primary stress hormone in the body that drives the ‘flight-and-fight’ response. A sufficient amount of cortisol is beneficial when we need to respond quickly in stressful situations. However, if a person suffers from chronic stress, too much cortisol can suppress the immune system. Cortisol impairs our immune system by decreasing the number of lymphocytes in our body. Lesser lymphocytes result in an unhealthy immune system, thus destroying the body’s first layer of defense.

UPPER CERVICAL CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND STRESS

Upper cervical chiropractic care can help you address your chronic stress.

Before getting chiropractic care, the upper cervical chiropractor will conduct nerve tests and digital X-rays. If an upper cervical misalignment is found, the upper cervical chiropractor will offer a chiropractic adjustment and other kinds of care. This will prevent inflammation and restore function to the central nervous system. 

If you have been finding a way to de-stress and live healthily, call us. Most sufferers of chronic stress feel better after their first few sessions of care. We care about the safety of our community. We can, therefore, guarantee your security during your consultation with us.
