ACAC Launches Straighten-Up Alberta

October 09, 2009
Oct. 9, Edmonton, AB - Launched October 8, 2009, with an elementary school demonstration of how easy and fun it is to do Straighten Up Alberta exercises, the Alberta chiropractic profession is attempting to get everyone, young and old, to reach for better posture.
Alberta chiropractors are implementing the Straighten-Up program to educate the public in the benefits of improved posture through simple exercises.  Straighten Up Alberta is a free, public service program, specifically designed and completely dedicated to improving posture in just three minutes a day.

Poor posture can negatively impact everyone, young and old. If younger individuals develop poor posture, it can decrease fitness and activity levels as they age, resulting in the potential of increased health problems.

Long-term effects of poor posture include:

  • chronic headaches
  • TMJ dysfunction
  • shoulder pain
  • pain in lower back
  • tightening in legs
  • kyphosis  

Since poor posture can negatively impact everyone, Alberta’s chiropractors are encouraging everyone to adopt this simple program into their daily routine.

The exercises outlined in the Straighten Up Alberta program can be done by anyone and don’t require equipment or special clothing, making it an ideal warm-up, cool down, stand-alone routine or simple ergonomic break that can be done anywhere.
