How Do Chiropractors help? (Answered)
When you’re in a standing position with correct posture, your weight should sit primarily on the balls of your feet. Your knees will be bent slightly (not locked) and you want to keep your feet about shoulder-width apart. Allow your arms to naturally hang down by the sides of your body as you stand straight and tall with your shoulders pulled back. Your chin should remain parallel with the ground so that it is not pulling your head in any particular direction. It’s simply resting on top of your spinal column.
Many people have to consciously work on sitting with correct posture because they have developed so many bad habits. If you’re sitting properly your feet should be firmly planted on the floor, not crossed. Your ankles should be in front of your knees so make sure you aren’t sweeping them backward and tucking them behind your knees. You may be more comfortable using a backrest to support your low- and mid-back so don’t hesitate to use a back support. Relax your shoulders and keep your chin parallel to the ground.
Pay careful attention to your chin to avoid bad posture. Are you looking down at a screen or jutting your head forward? You may need to lift your screen so that it is more ergonomically correct and encourages correct posture.
