How To Fix Bad Posture With Exercises & Targeted Treatments?
In Malaysia, fixing poor posture (bad or lousy posture) is easy if you know where to get the best treatment. Before seeking care, you need to investigate treatment facilities and centers around you thoroughly. Most treatment centers offer limited therapy options, and the vast majority of them are not holistic. In other words, for you to recover, you will need every aspect of your posture assessed by a proficient clinical team such as our chiropractors in KL; contact us today.
Physiotherapy and chiropractic are common avenues of therapy for most. Still, most centers that offer physiotherapy or Chiropractic in Malaysia lack a complete understanding of posture and biomechanical deficiencies that lead to a bad posture. Chiropractic Specialty Center® has specific protocols for assessments and treatment of those with poor postures. Our clinical teams go through intensive training sessions, and we are the best clinical teams in physiotherapy and Chiropractic in Malaysia. If you or your loved one suffers from poor posture, we can help. In this section, we will further look into what posture is and how it impacts you.

Bad posture and muscle imbalances can be the cause of neck and shoulder problems or vice versa. Muscle imbalances could be due to repetitive movements, prolonged stressful postures, and effects of gravity. Muscle imbalances occur when some muscles become short and tight, while some muscles become inhibited and weak.
Upper Crossed Syndrome or Proximal Crossed Syndrome And poor posture
Upper crossed syndrome or proximal crossed syndrome in the upper body is one of the examples of muscle imbalances. People with Proximal Crossed Syndrome usually present with forwarding head posture, rounded shoulders, and inwards rotated arms. Winging of the scapulae may be found with this musculoskeletal postural disorder.
Forward head carriage and rounded shoulder progressively weaken deep neck flexors in the front of the neck and scapular stabilizing muscles in the upper back. Tightening of the anterior chest muscles, upper back muscles, and posterior neck muscles occur. Muscle imbalances often result in faulty movements such as a scapular shrug, scapular winging, and head protraction. Poor neck and shoulder joint alignment can lead to rotator cuff impingement tendonitis, neck pain, and headache. Chronic hunching of the upper back can inhibit deep inhalation.
Importance Of Core Muscles When It Comes To Posture Rehabilitation
Strong and stable core muscles are vital to a healthy and active life. The core muscles include the pelvic floor muscles, your back, abdomen, thighs, and legs. Core muscle-strengthening programs need specificity and precision to bring about stability and posture, and spine. In other words, you must balance the agonists and the antagonists. Agonists and antagonists’ muscles or muscles that have opposing actions.
For example, the muscles in front of your thighs (quadriceps) or antagonists (performing opposite actions) to the muscles at the back of your thighs (the hamstrings). Balancing agonists and antagonists requires expertise, experience, and specialized therapeutic devices. As such, we encourage you to visit one of our centers for a thorough assessment. In the meantime, you may want to see additional articles that we have written on core msucles:
Avoid Prolonged Sitting If You Want To Feel Better
You should avoid prolonged computer or desk work and driving. Standing and stretching for a few minutes every half an hour prevents sustained misalignment and relaxes tight muscles. Sitting on a gym ball improves erect posture and decreases the stress in the lower back.

Stretching of the tight anterior chest muscles or pectoralis muscles alleviates the discomfort. Stand facing a wall corner in a “surrender position” with both arms and elbows at a 90-degree angle. Rest both palms against the wall and lean into the wall until a gentle stretch is felt in the chest muscles. Hold the stretch for 30 to 60 seconds. Change the angle of the arm to 120 degrees and repeat the procedures above.
