Your posture plays an important role in your overall health, therefore, poor posture can lead to chronic strain and discomfort. Poor posture can result in a condition known as “lower crossed syndrome” which is indicated by excessive tightness in your lower back and hip flexor muscles, with weakness in your abdominal and buttock muscles. Patients with lower crossed syndrome often have a “swayback.” Additionally, patients who often sit for prolonged periods of time are at greater risk of lower crossed syndrome. Common issues stemming from lower cross syndrome include hip pain or bursitis, low back pain with or without sciatica, knee pain, and ankle or foot pain.
As this postural problem commonly leads to additional painful conditions involving the back or hips, successful treatment of lower cross syndrome involves stretching excessively tight muscles, strengthening weak muscles, taking frequent breaks from sitting, and changing your workstation to be more user-friendly.
Developing a plan to tackle lower cross syndrome sometimes requires the help of a trained professional who can prioritize your particular problem. This can take the guesswork out of your issues and rule out other diagnoses or treatments. A competent chiropractor or physical therapist is often a great resource to help guide you on your way to better posture and better health.

I really love it here! They are very friendly and I feel Dr. Wilson is giving me great treatment! I also don’t feel pressured into coming back too frequently. The adjustments are great! Great office!
Dr. Matt and the entire staff have been GREAT! I went in for some issues I was having with my neck and back and Dr. Matt also helped me with some other issues I was having with my calf and shoulders that have made a HUGE improvement in my overall health and comfort.
I highly recommend using Dr. Matt!
Dr. Wilson and Dr, Alec (PT) are both top-notch, and I’ve trusted my whole family with Dr. Matt Wilson for the last couple of years. My father was a chiropractor for over 40 years, so I knew what I was looking for, and he’s the best we’ve found in the area. Their approach is to get you feeling better, and not to string things out, costing you more time and money than necessary. While they have all the equipment necessary (x-ray, etc) they don’t push unneeded services or snake oils. Both are caring, competent, and compassionate. The staff is good about finding appointments when you need them, and scheduling you with multiple people in a visit whenever possible. The new building is clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. Wait times are short, too. My husband has also had a therapy-based deep tissue massage from one of the two new massage therapists, and said it really helped!
Dr. Matt has done wonders for me and I recommend him highly – I can’t say enough good things about him. Dr. Matt and staff are good people and will take great care of you.
Dr. Matthew squeezed me in on short notice and took very good care of me. He was very thorough and didn’t just adjust me and let me walk out. Amazing experience here and the receptionist is a sweetheart.
Very professional and in depth consultation. These people seem to genuinely care about people’s health and progress.
