Sub-optimal posture is a leading cause of vertebral subluxations. This common condition occurs when spinal movement is restricted or spinal bones (vertebrae) become misaligned. Vertebral subluxations are linked with a myriad of health concerns such as carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, backaches, infantile colic and ear infections. Dr. Guerriere corrects vertebral subluxations with safe and gentle maneuvers called chiropractic adjustments.
Poor posture also damages areas of soft tissue and causes added wear and tear on joints. Optimal posture, on the other hand, strenghens the skeletal system.
Destruction caused by poor posture may also radiate through the body. For example, knee pain can result from misalignment in the pelvic region because the latter alters the natural walking posture.
