Nature works best when everything is in balance.  The same applies to your posture.  The body is designed to be self-supporting, self-regulating and self-healing. However, postural imbalances can have a detrimental effect on the body’s natural ability to adapt to its surrounding stresses.  Upper X syndrome and lower X syndrome are terms used to describe postural imbalances affecting the muscles. The team at Fishguard Chiropractic Clinic will often see these postures in their clients, due to the lifestyle habits of the modern day.  For example, sitting for hours on a computer, looking down at mobile devices, slumping on soft sofas – all lead to muscle imbalances. Some muscles are tightening, whilst others overstretch. In turn, these pull on the spine, and can contribute to misalignments. This then negatively affects your posture and how the nervous system functions – ie your brain and spinal cord.

Have you noticed that you carry your head far forwards?

Or perhaps you feel that your shoulders have rounded and your tummy sticks out?

Correcting your posture by stretching and strengthening the correct muscles can have an astonishing effect on how you look, feel and function.
