If you are experiencing pain, discomfort or problems with mobility, please contact our clinic to schedule an appointment and take advantage of all the benefits chiropractic care has to offer.
At ROCK Exeter, we emphasise optimal posture and spinal alignment as this is key to achieving optimal health. We use posture and radiographic analysis procedures that have been shown to be reliable and valid.
Ideal postural alignment from the side should have the centre of mass of the skull, thorax and pelvis in a vertical line with respect to gravity.
Ideal postural alignment from the front should have the spinal column vertically aligned - a straight column with respect to gravity.
From the side the spine has three primary curvature:
1 - Neck Curve - Cervical lordosis
2 - Ribcage Curve - Thoracic kyphosis
3 - Low Back Curve - Lumbar lordosis
The spine has its' specific balance that it should maintain. Poor posture, poor ergonomic, car crashes, falls and lifting injuries can all upset this balance. This can lead to spinal misalignment and loss of normal spinal curvature meaning abnormal and detrimental forces on the postural muscles, spinal ligaments and discs, nerves, bones and even the internal organs in the chest and abdominal cavities.
Once your Chiropractor understands the most likely the cause of your poor posture, they can prescribe treatments that will get you closer to ideal posture.
Denneroll Spinal Orthotics
Our Centre incorporates spinal orthotics to get even faster, better results for our patients. Designed by chiropractors and proven effective through case studies, Denneroll devices were created to address misalignments gently and with little discomfort on the part of the patient. You can purchase your own Denneroll device and take it home to continue your own care. Many patients report excellent results from their spinal orthotics as they assist in relief of pain and muscle tension, as well as enhance overall body health through postural re-alignment.
