Posture and You
The results really speak for themselves. Check out these patients’ progress after 1-3 months of care:
The next pair of images illustrate a “mid-point” of correction, in the middle of the corrective phase of care. These images are before-and-after for 3 months of care, and you can see how the shoulders in the side view have drifted backward relative to the hips and ankles. My experience is that posture correction includes a period of overcorrection of the former problem. It’s like a wave moves through the body over the course of several months:
Here in the front view, the correction is more subtle but really significant; notice how the hips and shoulders are more level. The wear and tear on joints from uneven tension is huge. Correcting that helps the body work better for longer!
The next pair of images are 3 months apart, and show the results of the corrective phase of care. Pay particular attention to the head tilt and ribcage on the front view. Note how much the head position has changed in the side view. How much less energy is she wasting now that her head is on top of her shoulders? How much more open and confident does she look?
3 months between the pre and post images. Which body would be easier to move and live in?
The following patient presented with ongoing low back pain, fatigue, pain down the legs into the knees, and neck pain. After a month of consistent care, his back pain is 80% resolved, the neck pain has reduced to just stiffness, and he didn’t remember that he had had leg pain.
The following patient presented with a herniated disc of 11mm, sciatic nerve pain in his calves and feet, and difficulty sleeping due to chronic pain.
This set of images are after 1 month of care on the left, and 2 months on the right. His sciatic pain has gone from severe enough to wake him up to mild and occasional (full disclosure: he also had a cortisone shot about 2 weeks before the image on the left. Medicine and chiropractic work well together!)
The following patient had low back and neck pain, and depression symptoms. 5 months later both have resolved. Further care will most likely reduce the shoulder tension and anxiety symptoms he’s still managing.
The following patient was in a car accident and had a concussion with headache and fuzzy thinking, as well as upper back pain. One month in, she is no longer feeling blurry, her headaches have cleared, and her posture has moved much closer to midline.
I’ve hesitated even to post this next study for a few months, because his results were so enormous that they almost look too good to be true! They really speak for themselves. When he came into my office, this patient had a lot of back pain, gluteal pain, difficulty walking, and most crucially, he couldn’t play with his niece.
