How To Do A Self-Posture Exam

Ever wondered if you have good posture?

Do this simple test yourself to determine if you have good posture! All you need is a wall.

Stand with your feet flat and heels approximately 6 inches away from the baseboard. Rest your back and head flat against the wall, and tuck in your chin.

Next, raise your arms at shoulder height and bend them at the elbow. Rotate your arms upward at the elbow, keeping them bent, and try to touch the back of your wrists to the wall.

If your back arches, or you can’t get your wrists to touch the wall, that indicates poor posture.


Having poor posture can certainly contribute to back pain, and correcting your posture can alleviate that pain.

With chiropractic care, proper spinal alignment can be achieved and provide relief from back pain.
