Our moms and dads warned
us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Certainly, our Auburn
chiropractor does today! 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. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. understands and embraces
slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. for Auburn
neck pain and back pain relief from
your slouching ways. Leave Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. 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 linked
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 respected which slouching do
not 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 isn’t good either as it strained
disc fibers and increased intradiscal pressure. Therefore,
Recent research recommended 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 good sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients
who know well often what triggers their back pain flare-ups.
Auburn 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 Auburn 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
Auburn chiropractor understands how helpful
our Auburn back pain patients’ knowledge of
their pain helps them recover. Knowledge like this and
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 helpful; feedback influences
change. In a recent study of feedback on posture
using a wearable feedback device for only 15 minutes a day increased
participants’ reports on physical functioning, emotions,
energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress along with neck and back posture compared to a group who did
not use the device. (1) We – including your Auburn chiropractor
– 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! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. is here to help.
