Is Your Posture the Cause of Your Back Pain?
Back pain is a condition that is expected to affect 8 out of 10 individuals at some point in their lifetime. At DeLand Chiropractor, we believe that you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence, and when it comes to back pain, one of the most common reasons behind it is poor posture.
Posture Plays A Significant Role in Back Pain
If you’ve been noticing that your back is hurting or you’re carrying more tension in your shoulders or neck, you may be suffering from poor posture. Common, daily activities, such as sitting on a computer, texting, and even wearing a bag on a single shoulder can cause poor posture that leads to both minor and significant back pain.
While back pain is one of the primary symptoms of poor posture, there are several other symptoms you may experience in conjuncture with back pain, including:
- Rounded/slumped shoulders
- Frequent headaches
- Muscle fatigue
- Hunched back/fatty neck hump
- Forward head carriage
- Pain throughout the body
- Pelvic tilt (anterior or posterior)
If you’ve noticed any combination of these symptoms, then you may be suffering from poor posture. While there are ways to correct your posture on your own, Chiropractic care will provide specific therapy to help you correct your posture problem and relieve your back pain.
Your Chiropractor will work to correct your postural imbalances, which will encourage your body to work as it should. It doesn’t happen overnight. However, once you’ve started to work through the restrictions imposed upon your body through poor posture, you’ll start to see real results, such as less tension and a decrease in overall pain.
