    Chiropractor Dr. Andrew Haug, Says Good Health Is Connected To Good Posture

    The impact of life’s daily grind over a period of time has a way to stress the human body in greater ways than anyone might realize. The skeletal frame is the core structure of the human body, if the body is straight it’s positioned to self-heal through proper alignment.

    Dr. Haug, has a passion for helping people discover the simple truth that life is better when the body is straighter. He says, many people have endured needless chronic pain for years and after spending precious time and money trying to get relief, yet some never come to realize that in certain cases, the pain is simply because the skeletal frame is not straight.

    He practices a special little known method called A.O. (Atlas Orthogonal). This method is a process of closely measuring each person’s actual alignment. Atlas Orthogonality is technique where a very light force instrument is used to adjust the Atlas Vertebra located at the top cervical bone in the neck. The atlas is located directly under the head, which connects the head to the rest of the spine and supports the weight of the head.
    When the head is positioned in the center of the feet, the body is balanced.

    He says a body that’s not brought into alignment can cause a domino effect creating issues like poor posture that adds stress to the muscles and joints, leading to areas that are inflamed and painful.

    Poor posture and painful joints make it hard to keep your body erect and can drain your energy. This leads to chronic fatigue which limits enjoyment and the ability to be as productive as possible.

    With this technique, Dr. Haug says, many have experienced a noticeable difference immediately – not only does the patient feel better, they actually leave the office standing up straighter.

    May is Posture Month so it’s a good time to be reminded as your mother would say to “stand up straight”!
