Hello Dr. Tucker,
I just wanted to congratulate you on the great article that you wrote on Dynamic Chiropractic. The information that you provided was very helpful and educational. I really like the techniques that you use to assess your patients. I only wish that other chiropractors followed your example. I have seen 3 chiropractors and not one of them has pointed out, discussed or assessed my bad posture.
I have been a chiropractic patient for aprox. 2 years. I’m 38 years old and relatively healthy. I’ve never broken or fractured any bones. A few years ago I had a brachial plexus injury. I experienced some muscle atrophy (right side – chest, back, tricep) as a result of the injury. Most recently, I had misaligned sacrum and it was corrected. I have had my hip adjusted (right tilt), too. I started getting treated because I was experiencing nagging injuries from running and also to address some of the residual brachial plexus injuries. I generally run 15 miles a week. Recently, I have discovered (on my own) that my injuries are most likely arising from bad posture and leaning to one side. I generally lean my neck to the right side, sometimes forward and at times my back leans to one side. Now that I’m aware of my bad posture I would like to correct it. I’m wondering if you can provide some tips or exercises.
Thank you for the great article.
