Growing up, when your mom used to criticize your poor posture, you’d feel like she was saying it to make you look more proper and well-maintained.
However, she was absolutely right in admonishing you for it, as the impact goes beyond just looks. It has some very negative effects on your health.
If you’re experiencing any level of back pain, you’re not alone—nearly half of America’s working population experiences back pain of some kind every year. While back pain is generally not a cause for concern, it may sometimes indicate serious underlying conditions, for example cancer of the spinal cord, arthritis or a herniated disc.
Some common myths still surround chiropractic care, especially when it comes to availing treatments during pregnancy. Many often suggest that it may present certain health risks for pregnant women and their fetus. However, there is no research to back up these claims.
