Many of the patients who attend our chiropractic clinic in Stoke are surprised to hear that their poor posture is causing or contributing to the pain they are experiencing.
A major step in preventing back pain is to have and maintain a good posture. However, our lifestyles do little to help us do this.
Often people’s lives swing from hectic, busy and often stressful periods to spending long periods of sedentary behaviour, sitting at desks, driving for long periods and lounging on the sofa watching TV. This kind of star/stop lifestyle does not to help our posture and in turn can lead to back pain and other problems.
“I had a lot of pain in the back and the neck. It was to the point where I couldn’t sit on my desk during the working day. After the 2-3 visit, my pain started to fade until it was gone. I did not made the mistake to drop at that point but continued to visit the practice to actually get the full course of trees. I’ve been treated by Mohamad and he is great. Friendly approach in the clinic and great service. I would highly recommend them to everyone. By the way I am software developer so all day sitting which explains the bad posture and pain” Paul D (5-Star Google Review)
All is not lost if you do have poor posture. Our Stoke Chiropractor offers this simple advice to help you improve your posture.
Simple Advice For A Better Posture
The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) has designed a simple effective 3 minute exercise routine to help improve posture. The programme, Straighten Up UK, is specifically designed to promote balance, strength and flexibility in your spine and is designed to be done on a daily basis.
The programme consists of three sessions which are easy to learn and do. Each session consists of stretches to be undertaken, each with a specific purpose.
Prior to starting the Straighten Up UK programme you should seek the advice of your GP, chiropractor or other healthcare professional to ensure the exercises are appropriate for your specific needs.

Visiting City Chiropractic Clinic in Stoke
If you are suffering back pain or want to improve your posture, our chiropractors at City Chiropractic Clinic have spent many years helping people like you.
“I suffered with lower back pain for 6 months before visiting City Chiropractic Clinic. My pain was eased within the first few visits and reduced significantly, along with my posture improvement, over the 10 months of treatment. I would definitely recommend City Chiropractic Clinic to anyone that has back problems!” Paul T (5-Star Google Review)
In addition to undertaking neurological and orthopaedic examinations, our chiropractors use the latest digital technology to assess a patient’s posture, when they first visit our clinic. To perform this test, we take two photos of the patient, one from the front and one from the side. The photos are then fed into a computer which uses some sophisticated processing to accurately evaluate the patient’s posture. It also calculates if any extra pressure is being placed on the patient’s spine due to their posture.
The comprehensive examination and consultation that you will receive on your first visit ensures that you receive expert diagnosis and care.
