Chi­ro­prac­tic Pro­fes­sion Declares May “Per­fect Pos­ture Month

Both the Inter­na­tional Chi­ro­prac­tors Asso­ci­a­tion (ICA) and the Amer­i­can Chi­ro­prac­tic Asso­ci­a­tion (ACA) have declared May to be an offi­cial month for good pos­ture. To announce this event both orga­ni­za­tions have issued press releases stress­ing the impor­tance of pos­ture and it’s rela­tion­ship to good spinal and ner­vous sys­tem health.

Robert J. Hoff­man, DC, FICA, Pres­i­dent of the Inter­na­tional Chi­ro­prac­tors Asso­ci­a­tion stated that the ICA was, “Set­ting aside an entire month to focus atten­tion on the impor­tance of a healthy spine and ner­vous sys­tem. This opens up lim­it­less pos­si­bil­i­ties for inform­ing the pub­lic, other pro­fes­sions, third-​party pay­ment agen­cies and gov­ern­ment offi­cials of chiropractic’s effi­cacy and ben­e­fits to health. It is an impor­tant oppor­tu­nity to edu­cate fam­i­lies on the impor­tance of healthy pos­ture and chiropractic’s role in main­tain­ing a healthy spine and ner­vous sys­tem.” The ICA also offers a web page with a full dis­cus­sion of good pos­ture and health which can be viewed at: http://​www​.chi​ro​prac​tic​.org/​c​h​i​r​o​i​n​f​o​/​p​o​s​t​u​r​e​.​h​t​m.

For years, par­ents have told their chil­dren to ‘stand up straight’ with­out really know­ing why it is so impor­tant,” said Dr. Jerome McAn­drews, spokesper­son for the ACA. “While stand­ing up straight seems like an obvi­ous way to cor­rect poor pos­ture, there are so many other activ­i­ties that make up a child’s daily rou­tine that can have an impact on their spinal health. Your doc­tor of chi­ro­prac­tic can give you tips to help encour­age cor­rect pos­ture around the clock.”
