We all know that we need good posture, but do we really know why?
Poor posture can be the root of many aches and pains, especially back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain.
Our daily lives often consist of staring at a computer screen, being hunched over a pile of papers on a desk, lifting heavy objects, or just playing hard. These types of activities can negatively affect alignment and cause a ripple effect of new and hard to pinpoint issues. Continually holding or moving our bodies in harmful ways can cause tense muscles, subsequently making our tendons, ligaments, joints and spine all fall out of alignment. Movement is not efficient in this environment, and solving a posture issue is often the first, and sometimes final, solution to ending pain! Are you ready to see if poor posture is the source of your pain? Our highly-trained medical staff, located in Tulsa, OK, is ready to get you on the path to a pain free life!
Why is good posture so important?

How can a poor posture screening help me?
At Lifestyle Medical Center, our team of doctors and professionals are trained to assess the alignment of your spine, bones, and muscles through a comprehensive posture screening. We will observe the way you sit, stand, and move, while measuring and recording slight movements from multiple angles.

What can you expect from your posture screening?
Our screenings are diagnostic procedures that provide an analysis of your spine and alignment. Our highly-trained medical staff will aim to pinpoint misalignment and other issues.
Neck pain, back pain, body pain, and headaches can all be the result of poor posture. Our number one goal is to establish better posture while sitting and standing. Our patients often experience immediate relief after a chiropractic adjustment. Many of our patients report an increase in range of motion, a relief of back and neck pain, and a better sense of well-being. At Lifestyle Medical Center, we believe a happier spine can lead to a happier mind!
Your chiropractic team will need to see you several times each week at the start of your treatment plan. As we collaboratively re-train your body toward proper alignment, you can evolve to once a week visits, and eventually occasional visits for maintenance.
Explore our non-invasive approach to better posture and overall health!
At Lifestyle Medical Center, we dig deep to uncover the source of your pain. Too often, pain medications and surgery are the first suggestion to pain relief, and these options can quiet the pain instead of fixing the actual problem. Surgery can include more pain medications, long recovery time, and often, more issues. Why not try our non-invasive approach before anything else? We strive to understand and pinpoint the actual issue by listening to the body’s clues, and letting the body begin to heal itself. In working with you to improve your posture, our medical staff will do more than mask your pain symptoms with prescription or surgical solutions. We will guide your body back to a healthy alignment naturally and efficiently, moving you back to a pain free life and a whole health vision.
