Poor Posture Correction in San Jose

Poor posture is more than an aesthetic concern; it significantly impacts overall health. At New Hope Chiropractic, we view posture as the body’s alignment during various positions, such as sitting, standing, or sleeping.

What Causes Bad Posture?

Common contributors include

  • Sedentary behavior
  • Incorrect ergonomic setups
  • Muscle weaknesses or imbalances
  • Inappropriate footwear
  • Habitual slouching
  • Structural issues like scoliosis
  • Changes associated with aging (e.g., reduced muscle mass and bone density)

A Comprehensive Assessment: What to Expect

Drs. Daniel Chun, Rich Jae Ho Roh or Jack Vong will comprehensively evaluate your posture. Assessments include checking the balance and neutrality of your spine and joints, ensuring your head and neck are properly aligned, observing shoulder levels, assessing your spine’s natural curves, and examining hip and pelvis alignment. We also look at your arm and knee positions and your body’s overall symmetry, ensuring that the left and right sides mirror each other.

Your doctor also looks at static posture and does a dynamic posture analysis to see how you maintain your posture during movement. This comprehensive assessment allows us to customize our care effectively.

Providing Tailored Treatment Strategies

We focus on understanding the unique causes of each patient’s poor posture. The doctors will ask you about daily habits and stress levels to offer a holistic solution. Our approach isn’t limited to addressing ergonomics or structural misalignments alone; we consider factors such as footwear, body awareness, and the need for possible X-rays. Our goal is to provide comprehensive care that addresses all aspects contributing to poor posture.

Patients can expect significant improvements in their posture through our tailored treatments. By addressing the root causes and providing personalized care, we aim to correct structural misalignments and improve muscle balance and body awareness.

These changes can enhance your posture and improve your overall health and well-being.
