Hope for New Roads Back and Neck Pain Due to Slouching and Poor Posture

Our parents and caregivers warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Undoubtedly, our New Roads chiropractor does now! Did we or do we heed their advice? Not likely when we were young and maybe a small number who are older and wiser today. New Roads Chiropractic Center understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to New Roads Chiropractic Center for New Roads neck pain and back pain relief from your slouching ways. Go away with tips on how to keep posture-influenced pain and distress at bay.

SLOUCHING, LIFTING, POOR POSTURE AND PAIN

Slouching posture isn’t good at all, not good for your spine, your health, your mood. Slouching is linked to things like pain, depression, and stress in addition to lower levels of general health, emotional well-being, and energy/fatigue. (1) Spinal angles need to be abided by which slouching doesn’t do. The pelvic angle, the angle of pelvic tilt, body mass index and thoracic kyphosis angle played a significant role in whether a person experienced back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting is not good either as it strained disc fibers and raised intradiscal pressure. Therefore, Recent research suggested using a “free posture” that it was neither too kyphotic or lordotic curved. This used both active and passive spine elements in a more balanced manner. (3) This concept of balance makes practical sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who know well often what triggers their back pain bouts.

New Roads CHIROPRACTIC PATIENTS CAN LIST THINGS THAT TRIGGER THEIR BACK PAIN

Back pain sufferers can tell us chiropractors what they think initiates their pain. Active movements (35%), static postures (28.1%), overdoing a task (5.3%), biomechanical issues, lack of exercise, work and medications top the list. Some New Roads back pain sufferers will agree that even nonbiomedical matters like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your New Roads chiropractor understands how beneficial our New Roads back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this and a tool can make great outcomes!

WHAT TO DO ABOUT SLOUCHING FOR BETTER POSTURE

Could today’s fancy tech help with posture? Possibly, it may do so quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is valuable; feedback changes habits. In a recent study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device for only 15 minutes a day improved participants’ descriptions of physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress along with neck and back posture compared to a group who didn’t use the device. (1) We – your New Roads chiropractor included – may have the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but when it comes down to it, we just aren’t very good at it on our own! New Roads Chiropractic Center is here to help.
