SLOUCHING, LIFTING, POOR POSTURE AND PAIN Slouching posture isn’t good at all, not good for your spine, your health, your mood. Slouching is linked 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 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 isn’t good either as it put a strain on disc fibers and increased 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 good sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who know well often what triggers their back pain flare-ups. Fort Wayne 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 Fort Wayne back pain sufferers will concur that even nonbiomedical concerns like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your Fort Wayne chiropractor understands how helpful our Fort Wayne back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain helps them recover. Knowledge like this plus a tool can create great results! WHAT TO DO ABOUT SLOUCHING FOR BETTER POSTURE Could today’s fancy tech help with posture? Possibly, it may do so quite a bit! As with anything in life, feedback is good; feedback influences change. In a new study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device for only 15 minutes a day improved participants’ reports on physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress in addition to neck and back posture compared to a group who did not use the device.
