Dear Better Posture Seeker,
I’m Dr. Natalie Cordova, a Chiropractor and posture expert, and I want to help you improve your posture! You can have good posture!
Yes, it’s completely possible – you just have to stop wasting time doing the things that can’t possibly work – and take the right steps.
Remember slumping on the couch watching TV until Mom came in and yelled at you to “sit in that chair properly!”?
Now, there is no one to tell you to “sit up straight.” (That won’t work anyway) You’ve fallen into bad posture habits – you spend hours and hours in bad posture, just doing your normal daily activities.
Habits are hard to break, but what if you didn’t even have to think about “remembering” to have good posture? What if it was just what you did naturally?
Or maybe you’ve noticed that you hold your head out in front of you – what chiropractors call the Forward Head Posture. When you look at your side reflection, your head is pushed forward, which doesn’t look good and causes a lot of extra strain on your neck and upper back.
Most of my patients that are dealing with headaches arrive in our office with just this very posture. A lot of times, this also is the beginning of a hump, like those little old ladies get.
The first time you noticed this about yourself, you knew it wasn’t normal, but what could you do? You figured it was causing some of the headaches, neck and upper back pain you’ve been dealing with off and on.
You probably figured it was just part of getting older, like there was nothing you could do about it — but that’s not true!
In my chiropractic practice, one of the main causes of upper back and shoulder pain is rounded shoulders. Most of my patients can’t think of any trauma they might have had, but they are usually only considering major traumas like car accidents and falls.
They forget about the daily, repetitive trauma of gravity pulling their shoulders out of their normal position and alignment. How many hours per week do your shoulders spend in bad posture?
But what can you do to correct the problem? It’s not just about how you stand. It’s not just about good ergonomics either? You can’t be thinking about good posture all the time – it has to be more about building up the right muscles so that it all happens without you thinking about it.
Maybe you just have to sit or stand in place for long periods of time, causing your back ache all over. By the end of a long day, you can no longer sit or stand without the constant feeling that you need to stretch your back or feeling like it “needs to pop.”
You may not have realized your bad posture was contributing to your back pain. Or you simply didn’t know what to do about it. You’ve probably tried to sit up straight, bought posture supports, changed your chair… but it didn’t last, right?
Your bad posture started out as just another bad habit. That’s probably why you think you can just “remember” your way to attaining good posture. You’re thinking to yourself, “If I just had something that would remind me to sit up straight or an alarm or something that went off every couple of minutes…”
Have you tried to buy a posture support or a posture corrector yet? Didn’t work out like you thought, right? You put it on, had good posture for a couple of minutes, maybe even a few days, then when you took it off – you quickly started to realize you were getting dependent on it.
You need fast results combined with a long term solution to finally solve your bad posture problem. There is a solution, but most people just want to wear something in a well-meaning attempt to change it now – but that’s just not going to work!
My patients have tried all of these “solutions.” I’ve heard the stories and have seen their lack of results. They really want good posture – and they are tired of wasting their time on stuff that doesn’t work.
Sometimes, it’s only after they’ve spent thousands of dollars on these “solutions” that they decide to find a real solution to their back pain problems. Sometimes it’s only after I have shown them the damage on x-ray that they really wish they would have taken the right action sooner.
Even though it’s not too late for them (although they will have a much more difficult road), it’s still frustrating to know that it just didn’t have to be this way. For that reason, I have a goal of reaching people earlier and helping them change this very preventable condition.
My own grandmother suffered from a Dowagers Hump, the stoop-inducing bend in her upper back caused by bad posture habits from her youth. I loved her dearly but secretly thought to myself, “I sure hope that doesn’t happen to me.” It didn’t look good but, more importantly, I knew she suffered with back pain everyday.
I decided I wanted to find a way to help people like her, those who suffered from back pain caused by bad habits, poor nutrition or hereditary factors. I became a chiropractor to help people find relief from their back pain.
In my more than 14 years as a chiropractor, I have treated patients with all kinds of back problems – most of which can be traced directly to their bad posture. Much of my work is making weekly adjustments to their spine and general alignment. This relieves the pain in the short term but I kept seeing the same patients come back again and again with the same problems.
“My back aches when I sit at the computer for even a short time.”
“I’m tired of seeing how I look in pictures, and my clothes don’t look right.”
“I get bad headaches nearly every day, and my neck is sore and stiff.”
“I missed a week of work (again) because I threw out my back.”
Frankly, I got tired of hearing their complaints because I knew there were simple exercises they could do to permanently alleviate their suffering.
That is why I created Posture Confidence.
You see, I love helping people with their posture. As a chiropractor, I see the negative effects of bad posture in my practice every day. I hate taking an x-ray and telling the patient that they have degeneration in their spine. The look on their face when they see they have bone spurs is always hard to take – and I’ve seen it too many times.
As a fitness enthusiast, I am always shocked when I see people working out so hard but still have bad posture. I’m convinced that many people don’t even realize how bad their posture is, even top athletes.
From this I learned that unfocused exercising won’t work. Doing the specific exercises that target specific muscles – your postural support muscles – is what makes all the difference.
You see, a group of muscles known as your postural muscles supports your spine. These muscles work together to keep you spine, your neck, head and your hips in perfect alignment – if they are properly strengthened. The problem is most people don’t exercise their back muscles, or they don’t do it the right way, or they don’t do it consistently.
It’s the imbalance that’s leads to the posture problems. Typically, you are only working out the muscles you can see in the mirror (at least these are the muscles you work out the most – and I don’t just mean at the gym – think about your normal daily activities).
Even if you don’t exercise regularly, you are still overworking your “front” muscles in your normal daily activities!
Yes, you should do “abs.”
In fact, ab exercises are a part of the exercises in Posture Confidence.
However, we are going to concentrate on the other side – the side you can’t see so easily in the mirror – your back.
You’re going to have to exercise. You have to change how your muscles work. You can’t keep wasting your time on things that are going to give you false hope and that can’t possibly work while your posture just gets worse and worse.
The exercises need to be practical. Something you won’t mind doing. Something you don’t have to “remember” all the time. Just something that improves your posture as efficiently and as quickly as possible. I figure if you get results, you’ll keep it up! …and what if you actually like doing them?!
The exercises are not difficult to understand, and they will make all the difference in your posture. They will make all the difference in your forward head posture, in your rounded shoulders and in your “hump.”
With Posture Confidence, you’ll learn:
A total of 3 workouts of easy-to-complete exercises that will vastly improve your posture and your overall health in just minutes a day!
With Posture Confidence, you will gain confidence as your posture improves. You will stand taller, meeting the world with a straight-on gaze. You will feel stronger and more vibrant. Tasks that you dreaded doing before because you knew the back pain would be nearly debilitating will be accomplished with ease.
“Dr. Cordova, just a note to say thank you for putting this book and dvd together!I have a stressful job that requires me to sit at a computer all day. Having good posture wasn’t even a thought until I started having neck and back pain, but I’m certainly glad to have discovered your exercises. I have learned that having good posture is critical to living a healthy and pain-free life!” — Ellen S. Houston, TX
“My job typically has long hours and requires international air travel. Without even knowing what happened, I found that my shoulders were rounding, my neck would ache, my head would ache, and my back felt like it was “going out”.
After reading your book, I find that — with very little effort — I can perform your recommended exercises and relieve this pain. I thought that the pain resulting from these activities was something I had to live with. Your book has taught me that this is not true.
Thank you very much for revealing this wisdom. I feel better already. The DVD’s great too!” — Carol P. Freehold, NJ
“Dr. Cordova, I’m so glad I found your site! One of my biggest concerns is that I will develop a hump in my back as I get older. Knowing what to do has taken that off my mind.
I have to sit in front of a computer all day and your exercises are clearly the key to getting rid of the pain I get between my shoulder blades. Thank you!” – Robin V. Houston, TX
