Poor Posture Has Become an Orthopedic Health Care Epidemic!
Many Arkansans are in a serious slump — that is, their spinal posture is slumping out of control! We’re only half-kidding when we say we may be devolving back to the posture of our distant Simian cousins in the not so distant future.
Look around you: People spend ever-increasing amounts of time bent over computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices. They’re all developing poor posture habits. Watch as they stroll through the mall with their heads forward and their shoulders slumped and rounded. It’s clear evidence that something needs to be done, before all these people develop degenerative spinal conditions that leave them with chronic pain and illness.
Improving the prognosis for long-term spine health starts by recognizing poor posture and taking steps to improve it.
What Can Be Done?
Improving posture and performance – in the example below of a 14-year-old spine, where posture is already set – requires aggressive rehabilitation. This includes exercises to re-educate muscles, and 3D bracing to restore correct curve structure to a healthy spine.
It’s important to understand that it takes a combination of treatments to change the structure of the spine. In adults, exercises alone cannot correct spinal misalignment.
In the photos above, the green line illustrates the ideal posture for most of us. As you can see, this young man shows immediate improvement in his posture. However, the brace will need to be used regularly and will require a specifically designed custom set of corrective exercises performed daily. Improvements will vary depending on age and severity of the posture defects.

Although there are cosmetic benefits to improved posture, studies show there are physiological benefits patients will reap throughout their lives as well.
Normal spinal curves give muscles leverage and make you stronger, thereby giving you more energy. Good posture also allows you to perform activities, including athletics, with optimal effort and coordination. Your nervous system also enjoys improved function with less interference to muscles and organs. As you age, you will also be more likely to perform normal activities without the need for canes, walkers, or other assistance.
