Leave Executive Chiropractic of Iowa with tips on how to keep posture-influenced pain and distress at bay.

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 need to be respected 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 experienced 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 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 episodes.

West Des Moines CHIROPRACTIC PATIENTS CAN LIST THINGS THAT TRIGGER THEIR BACK PAIN

Back pain sufferers can explain to us chiropractors what they think 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 West Des Moines back pain sufferers will concur that even nonbiomedical matters like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your West Des Moines chiropractor understands how beneficial our West Des Moines back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this and a tool can create great outcomes!

WHAT TO DO ABOUT SLOUCHING FOR BETTER POSTURE

Could today’s fancy tech improve posture? Possibly, it may do so quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is good; feedback changes habits. In a new study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device just 15 minutes a day improved 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 – your West Des Moines chiropractor included – set out with 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! Executive Chiropractic of Iowa is here to help.
