Why Your Curves Matter: Maintaining a Healthy Spine

As a chiropractor at Bedford Chiropractic Clinic for over 25 years, I’ve seen first-hand the impact that curves in the spine can have on our daily lives.

Whether you’re sitting at a desk all day or lifting heavy boxes, it’s crucial to maintain the natural curves in your spine to reduce the risk of pain and discomfort. That’s why I’m here to talk to you about the importance of looking after your spine!

You’ve probably heard the phrase ‘stand tall, with good posture’, but did you know that good posture starts with the curves in your spine?

The natural curves in your spine are what allow you to bend, twist, and turn with ease. The cervical curve, located in your neck, provides support and balance for your head. The thoracic curve, located in your upper back, helps to distribute the weight of your upper body evenly, reducing the risk of back pain. The lumbar curve, located in your lower back, helps to absorb shock and protect your spinal cord.

However, our modern lifestyles can often put a strain on these natural curves, causing them to become distorted and leading to pain and discomfort. For example, sitting at a desk all day can cause a forward head posture, putting pressure on the neck and upper back. On the other hand, lifting heavy objects without proper technique can put extra strain on the lower back.

That’s where chiropractic care comes in. By realigning the curves in your spine, I can help you to reduce the risk of pain and discomfort and improve your posture. I’ll work with you to develop a customised treatment plan that takes into account your specific needs and goals. Whether it’s through manual adjustments, exercises, or lifestyle changes, I’ll help you get back on track to a healthy spine.
