Hope for Ashburn Back and Neck Pain Due to Slouching and Poor Posture

Our parents and caregivers warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Certainly, our Ashburn chiropractor does today! Did we or do we heed their advice? Very few of us if any when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser today. Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn accepts and welcomes slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn for Ashburn back pain relief and neck pain relief from your slouching ways. Go away with tips on how to avoid posture-influenced pain and misery.

SLOUCHING, LIFTING, POOR POSTURE AND PAIN

Slouching posture is just not good, not good for your spine, your health, your mood. Slouching is related to things like pain, depression, and stress as well as 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 had back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting is not good either as it strained disc fibers and raised intradiscal pressure. Consequently, Recent research recommended using a “free posture” that it was neither too kyphotic or lordotic curved. Thus it used both active and passive spine elements in a more balanced manner. (3) This concept of balance makes good sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who know well often what triggers their back pain flare-ups.

Ashburn CHIROPRACTIC PATIENTS CAN LIST THINGS THAT TRIGGER THEIR BACK PAIN

Back pain sufferers can tell us chiropractors what they believe brings on 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 Ashburn back pain sufferers will concur that even nonbiomedical issues like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your Ashburn chiropractor values how helpful our Ashburn back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this plus a tool can create great results!

WHAT TO DO ABOUT SLOUCHING FOR BETTER POSTURE

Could today’s fancy tech help with posture? Potentially, it may help quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is good; feedback influences change. In a recent study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device for only 15 minutes a day boosted participants’ reports on physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress in addition to neck and back posture contrasted with a group who did not use the device. (1) We – your Ashburn chiropractor too – may have the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but in the end, we just aren’t that observant on our own! Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is here to help.
