Posture, Health and Welness

By Dr. Dan Van Roon • February 2nd, 2012

Posture and normal physiology are interrelated. Posture affects and moderates every physiological function from breathing to hormonal production. Abnormal posture is evident in patients with chronic and stress related illnesses. Homeostasis and nervous system function are ultimately connected with posture. Despite the considerable evidence that posture affects physiology and function, the significant influence of posture on health is not addressed by most physicians.

Health care is slowly changing from a symptom and disease based system to a function and performance based system in which the structure of the human body is restored
and maintained. Correction and maintenance of the structure of the spine is of paramount importance in the pursuit of optimal health.

Doctors of Chiropractic are experts in spinal structure and body mechanics. Chiropractic adjustments are aimed at restoring and maintaining the structural integrity of the body by correcting spinal and postural distortions. Chiropractors emphasize the importance of posture to overall health, a concept that has been often overlooked in traditional methods of health care.

“The beginning of the disease process begins with postural distortions” ….Dr. Hans Seyle, Nobel Laureate
