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

Our moms and dads warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Certainly, our Vancouver chiropractor does now! Did we or do we pay attention? Very few of us if any when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser now. Vancouver Spine Care Centre understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Vancouver Spine Care Centre for Vancouver neck pain and back 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 must be respected which slouching doesn’t do. The pelvic angle, the angle of pelvic tilt, body mass index and thoracic kyphosis angle displayed a significant role in whether a person experienced back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting isn’t good either as it put a strain on disc fibers and raised intradiscal pressure. Therefore, Recent research suggested using a “free posture” that it was not too kyphotic or lordotic curved. This used both active and passive spine elements in a more balanced way. (3) This concept of balance makes good sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who are well aware what triggers their back pain flare-ups.

Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC PATIENTS CAN LIST THINGS THAT TRIGGER THEIR BACK PAIN

Back pain sufferers can tell us chiropractors what they think brings on their pain. Active movements (35%), static postures (28.1%), overdoing a task (5.3%), biomechanical issues, lack of exercise, work and medications are on the list. Some Vancouver 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 Vancouver chiropractor is aware of how beneficial our Vancouver back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this plus a tool can make great results!

WHAT TO DO ABOUT SLOUCHING FOR BETTER POSTURE

Could today’s tech-y gadgets help with posture? Possibly, it may help quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is beneficial; feedback influences change. 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 contrasted with a group who didn’t use the device. (1) We – your Vancouver chiropractor too – set out with the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but when it comes down to it, we just aren’t that observant on our own! Vancouver Spine Care Centre is here to help.
