Chiropractic Treatment For Posture Problems Related To Sitting

We have been providing posture related chiropractic treatment in San Francisco for over 23 years.

The majority of the patients we treat in downtown San Francisco spend most of their day sitting in front of a computer. This is after having already spent most of their lives sitting  at a desk in school. It’s just the way it is.

Now this is all well and good if something is being done to counteract the negative effects of sitting all day. Because we are living organisms, we adapt to our external environment. If the external environment is sitting in front of a computer, than our body’s will adapt to this.

Office workers over time tend to develop a forward head posture (FHP) and a rounded upper back. The shoulders also roll forward.

This is bad news because this posture puts more stress on the bones in the neck and upper back than they were designed to resist. This causes them to degenerate and become unstable. Because of this, the neck and upper back muscles have to work harder which can lead to all sorts of physical problems such as headaches, neck pain, upper back pain, shoulder and arm pain, and insomnia.

As time goes on the condition can become worse leading to chronic pain and disability.

In addition, there have been numerous studies over the past several years that show people that sit most of the day have a higher risk of obesity, heart disease, cancer, and early death.

Great…so what can you do about it?

Well, the way we see it is that by design we need to be getting a lot of exercise…life is motion.  So the solution is simple…increase physical activity…a lot. Walk more, take stairs, take breaks and walk around. Heck…you can even get a life cycle or exercise bike at your desk or workstation.  Go on a walk when you get home, before work, whatever…just start moving around a lot more than you do.

As far as the poor posture goes…well, that’s where chiropractic comes into play. We are the posture experts. We can help correct your forward head posture (FHP) as well and any other parts of your spine or body that are out of normal alignment and position. We can help you adjust your workstation, sleeping positions, workouts, and exercise patterns so that you have a way to counteract the negative effects of sitting all day.

What you eat and drink plays a big role as well. Your chiropractor can help you here too.

Your chiropractor is your One Stop Posture Shop.

Yes, sitting is bad news and the news seems to get worse. But the solution is right there before you. The ball is in your court. You don’t need to be a statistic. Take action now…pick-up the phone and call your chiropractor!

Patient Success Story: Neck and Back Pain

Neck and Upper Back Pain Doctor in SFOur San Francisco Chiropractor Patient of the Week, Susanne reported to our office with neck and upper back pain and
stiffness that was making life miserable. 

As most of our patients do, Susanne spends the majority of her day sitting in front of a computer. She thought she had a good ergonomic setup, so something like this wasn't
supposed to happen. 

We explained to her that even with a sound ergonomic
setup, our bodies still endure a considerable amount of physical stress
throughout the day, especially if we are sitting for extended hours and
not getting regular movement in our spine.  

After just one chiropractic
treatment, she felt a decrease in her neck and upper back pain.  We provided
her with some postural exercises for the cervical and thoracic spine, as well as some other home care instructions (how to sleep, lift, and stretch), which
helped her to notice a dramatic improvement in her condition.  

Susanne
now comes in periodically for maintenance care just to keep her neck and back in proper alignment.  Life is much better now. Thanks for sharing Susanne :-)

Chiropractor San Francisco Financial District

Chiropractor san francisco financial districtOur "Patient of the Week" review is from Doug Edwards. Douglas presented to our clinic about 6 years ago with upper back pain, low back pain, thumb and hand pain. His condition had developed gradually over the years from long hours of sitting and computer use. His symptoms were interfering with his golf game and had flared up when he was on vacation sailing, so he decided it was time to try something different, because the care he was receiving was not helping.

When we checked Douglas we found subluxations in the neck, upper back and low back. Vertebral subluxations are the term chiropractors use to describe a misalignment of a vertebrae that is causing nerve interference, loss of motion, muscle spasm, pain and dysfunction. We also found misalignment's in the hand and thumb.

We put Douglas on a chiropractic treatment program to address all these issues. The goal was to take him as close as possible to being pain free with normal function. Well, we were able to make big changes and Douglas has been coming in for maintenance care ever since. Sure, sometimes he has flair-ups and he even has new issues that pop-up from time to time, but his regular chiropractic regimen of 2 times per month along with his home exercises and healthy lifestyle keep him in excellent health most of the time.

Douglas is not alone. Most of the patients we treat at Executive Express Chiropractic are coming for ongoing maintenance care. Do they need to come forever? Well…if they want to receive the benefits of chiropractic care they have to see a chiropractor. If they want those benefits forever then YES!

Just like if you want the benefits of exercise or eating right you have to do it ongoing..it's a lifestyle choice…just like chiropractic!
