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

Our moms and dads told us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Certainly, our Vancouver chiropractor does now! Did we or do we listen? Very few of us if any when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser today. Vancouver Disc Centers accepts and welcomes slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Vancouver Disc Centers for Vancouver neck pain and back pain relief from your slouching ways. Leave Vancouver Disc Centers 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 connected to things like pain, depression, and stress in addition to lower levels of general health, emotional well-being, and energy/fatigue. (1) Spinal angles must be abided by which slouching doesn’t do. The pelvic angle, the angle of pelvic tilt, body mass index and thoracic kyphosis angle had 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. Consequently, Recent research suggested using a “free posture” that it was not 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 practical 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 explain to us chiropractors what they believe initiates 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 agree that even nonbiomedical matters like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your Vancouver chiropractor understands how beneficial our Vancouver back pain patients’ understanding of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this plus a tool can make great outcomes!

WHAT TO DO ABOUT SLOUCHING FOR BETTER POSTURE

Could today’s tech-y gadgets improve 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’ descriptions of physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress as well as neck and back posture compared to a group who didn’t use the device. (1) We – your Vancouver chiropractor included – may have the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but in the end, we just are not very good at it on our own! Vancouver Disc Centers is here to help.
