1. BE AWARE:
The major mistake most of the people make regarding their posture is they don’t know what is wrong with it. They are not aware that they have a bad posture or at a certain time, they ignore the fact that must maintain a good posture.
Being aware that you have a poor posture is the very first step to being able to correct it. When you are busy in other things, your spine starts to curve, your shoulders get hunched, and your back is dislocated. You need to take a few moments out and pull your body back at its actual and proper alignment.
If you are not good at considering a good posture, try a string practice in which you consider that you have a string attached to your entire body starting from the bottom till the top of your head. All you need to do is pull that string up while raising the chin slightly so that it gets parallel to the floor. Now bend your knees a little bit and make your feet apart from each other considering the width of your shoulder.
Now tuck your stomach while rolling your pelvis forward so that your back is at its proper position and it is not swayed. After that, you need to weight most of the weight on your feet’s balls while thinking tall. Take a few deep breaths and let yourself take in the idea of what good posture feels like.
2. Use the wall:
Many people have a habit of tilting their pelvis that is why they have a sway back. Therefore they need to learn how to roll it forward and get it straight in shape. For this purpose, they need to use a floor and wall so that they can shift the pelvis.
There are many reasons due to which a person can develop a habit if sway back such as due to injury, carrying a lot of abdominal fat or carrying heavy weight for a long time. That is why you can suffer from a great deal of pain while adjusting to straight your spin but it will make a huge difference in your posture.
You need to stand flat against any wall and fell the straightening in the back. Make your feet directly under your body and press your back into the wall and try to shift your pelvis roll forward. You have to pay attention to the sensation so that if you don’t have any wall, you can duplicate it easily.
You can also do all this using the floor while pressing your back on the floor while pressing your knees slightly bent. To gain good posture you need to practice arching your back and pressing it against the wall or floor to get the motion.
3. Stay active:
Usually, most of us ignore the fact that we all need regular stretching and exercise which is important and good for your posture. Many people don’t realize that they need to maintain good shape and posture while exercising which is also known as “form.” You need to stay in good form while doing following exercises like cardio, stretching, bearing exercises and many more. If you skip this part, it may cause pain and injuries in your body.
You can even take guidance from Dr. Gold Chiropractic about your posture or research on the internet about it, or any other chiropractor to see what form you need to maintain while exercising at gym or home. A good fitness professional who knows your medical issues can also help in gaining better posture.
4. Get a regular and proper Chiropractic treatment:
Chiropractic treatments and techniques are used for correcting a poor posture and turning it into a good one. You can also practice some techniques by yourself on a regular basis or get professional help. There are many reasons how a Chiropractic practice can help you in improving your posture, first of all, Chiropractic is making adjustments in your joints and spine which help you in better mobility and providing you wider motions at the same time.
