It is never too late to start improving your posture. The body is made to repair, regenerate, and adapt to its environment. Abnormal posture can be treated with spinal manipulation by a chiropractor. Spinal manipulation or adjustments move the misaligned bones back into their proper place. This causes imbalanced muscles to move into a relaxed position. In addition, postural improvement exercises support the spinal manipulations by reducing stress on the muscles, joints, and ligaments.

Hi! There are many reasons why a person could be experiencing leg pain. However, it sounds like you may be suffering from sciatica. Sciatica can be caused by a herniated disc, lumbar degeneration, lumbar stenosis (narrowing of a space in the spine), or spondylolisthesis (fracture of the spinal bone causing it shift forward or backward). Pain can originate from the lower back or buttocks and travel down the leg to the foot via the sciatic nerve. It can be worsened by prolong sitting or standing. However, it is relieved while walking or lying down. Also, you mentioned a wallet. Many men carry a wallet in their back pockets. Did you know if you sit with a wallet in your back pocket, you will apply additional pressure on the sciatica nerve and eventually aggravate the nerve leading to shooting pain down the leg. To relieve the pain, I suggest going to a local chiropractor to evaluate your spine for misalignments of the spinal vertebrae. They will provide a treatment which may include spinal manipulations or adjustments to place the misaligned bone back in place along with supportive physiotherapy.
