Whether it’s being able to see no matter where you are in a crowd or having a natural advantage in sports, tall people enjoy many priviledges simply because of their physical stature. But according to the American Journal of Epidemiology, a towering height is also a disadvantage with tall people more likely to experience health issues like back and neck pain. Located in Carrollton, GA, Dr. Pete Lazarnick (Dr. Pete) is passionate about treating patients of all shapes and sizes, including those who are tall. Here are three reasons why tall people may need chiropractic care and how we can help today!
More Injury Prone
Tall people are more likely to face serious injuries from everyday accidents and falls than the average person. With longer limbs and bodies, there’s more distance to the ground when a taller individual falls. This is why athletes who are lankier suffer from hip injuries and have a longer recovery time in contrast to the shorter athletes.
The taller you are, the more tendency you have to slouch. While slouching is bad for anybody, short or tall, a bad posture that damages the neck and back is more detrimental for lengthier heights. Your Carrollton, GA chiropractor recommends non-invasive procedures like spine exercises and posture correction before it’s too late.
Bending in planes and cars, slouching over the kitchen sink or the bathroom while brushing your teeth—if you’re tall, these images may be familiar to you. While tall people are used to adapting their posture in various settings of their life, back pain is an inevitable consequence of this daily struggle.
