Faulty posture is usually caused by poor reflexive control and weak, inelastic muscles. Poor posture can lead to increased wear and tear on soft tissue structures such as muscles and ligaments which is the leading cause of chronic back problems. A sedentary lifestyle, poor workstation ergonomics, being overweight, and inadequate footwear can also contribute to back problems.
Once deviations are detected one of the best ways to improve your posture is to correct the reflexes that are causing these deviations - this is the primary focus of NUCCA. The average patient in a NUCCA office sees a greater than 50% reduction in postural distortion within 2-3 days of the initial visit, and the procedure itself is as gentle as having your pulse taken.
Posture is not only important to how you feel, but it also projects a healthy image to the rest of the world. Not only will you feel better, but you will also look better!
