About Posture and Chiropractic
Dr. Nicki Borba, D.C, whose chiropractic office is based out of Roseville CA, along the border of Granite Bay, is a seasoned female chiropractor who has studied and learned to detect poor posture and its underlying reasons. Unhealthy posture can indicate problems with the spine or nervous system. It is important to discover the reason for poor posture and to treat the problem before further health issues arise.
A common posture problem is forward tilt of the pelvis. The body’s weight shifts forward, causing excessive curvature and muscle weakness. This can cause chronic lower back and muscle pain, sciatica, leg weakness and circulation problems in the lower extremities. Premature spinal arthritis of the joints and discs can develop.

Chiropractic treatment can address health issues caused by forward tilt of the pelvis and other posture problems. A chiropractor may use spinal manipulation to realign the pelvis and prevent it from tipping. Myofascial therapy can alleviate trigger points (areas of tenderness in the muscles). Stretching exercises may be prescribed to help reduce muscle tension and pain.
Research has shown that poor posture can lead to further health problems. Take good care of your spine and attend to any painful areas early on. A chiropractor can teach you how to maintain a healthy posture, so that you can protect your back while you sleep, exercise and work.
