Back Pain Treatment - Is Your Posture the Cause of Your Back Pain?
You work at a computer during the day, shoulders hunched over your heavy workload. At night, to relax, you play a few video games or watch sports on TV, sitting eagerly on the edge of your seat, your spine rounded.
But that’s no big deal, right? Wrong.
Studies reveal that low back pain is directly correlated with the slumping, hunching postures many adolescents and adults adopt in our age of modern technology.
That should be no surprise since many people spend at least eight hours per day in an unnatural posture. And poor posture is associated with a host of chronic issues including nerve compression and muscle imbalance.
Poor posture can affect more than your back. It can also:
- Decrease flexibility
- Affect joint mobility
- Affect balance
- Affect digestion
- Affect respiration
- Misalign your muscles
- Cause spinal injury
- Cause neck and shoulder pain
Whether or not you have associated back pain, you should get your posture checked, and corrected, to avoid health problems down the line.
How Chiropractic Care Can Relieve Your Back Pain and Fix Your Posture
Chiropractic care is the gold-standard for back pain treatment due to postural issues.
Studies indicate that the spectrum of chiropractic care, which includes massage, physical therapy, and exercise therapy, is effective for a broad range of back pain issues.
In addition, new evidence shows that chiropractic care can also result in postural improvements, relieving improper pressure on vertebrae and nerves and restoring proper spinal support.
Even one session of spinal manipulation in association with head weighting had an effect on head posture that was visible in an X-ray.
Coupled with a program of exercise and physical therapy, a series of chiropractic care visits can completely re-orient your natural posture and help maintain correct spinal curvature for improved health and pain reduction.
