Why Do Chiropractors Prioritise Posture?

“Everything that we do in our everyday lives is dependent on our posture.  Our ability to lie down, sit, stand and walk in comfort, is directly related to the template of centered body posture”

-Donna Farhi

At The Health Studio we place great importance on your POSTURE.  

We routinely take digital images of your posture and make exercise recommendations to help correct any imbalances or postural weaknesses.  

This is because it is proven to directly impact the rest of your health.  

Posture isn’t just an aesthetic problem, it can have consequences on your global well being, including balance and coordination, fatigue, neck pain and headaches, sleep quality, immune function, digestive and respiratory health, and increased risk of spinal degeneration, amongst other things.


Postural decline can be insidious, there can be a gradual deterioration in a person’s posture well before they experience any symptoms associated with it.  Once a person is having symptoms or pain related to poor posture, it has often progressed to irreversible damage.


Prevention is better than cure, if we can identify issues with your posture in the earlier stages of your care, and advise best on how to correct it, this will not only help with any spinal pain, but can have broader impacts on your overall well being and vitality.
