Effects Poor Posture Has On Health
Increases Risk Of Blood Clots
Poor posture can change the way the spine is aligned, resulting in constriction of the blood vessels, vein blockage, and increasing the risk of blood clots. When the blood can not flow sufficiently it decreases the oxygen supply throughout the body turning the once free-flowing flood into a substance that is more solid in nature and difficult to flow. Blood clots can be dangerous as they can result in deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, both of which are life-threatening if not treated promptly. Spinal realignment and other chiropractic treatments may be beneficial in helping individuals regain proper posture and aid in the blood flowing properly throughout the body.
