Hope for Fort Wayne Back and Neck Pain Due to Slouching and Poor Posture

April 21, 2020

Our moms and dads warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Undoubtedly, our Fort Wayne chiropractor does now! Did we or do we pay attention? Not likely when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser now. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc for Fort Wayne back pain relief and neck pain relief from your slouching ways. Go away with tips on how to avoid posture-influenced pain and misery.


Slouching posture isn’t good at all, not good for your spine, your health, your mood. Slouching is connected 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 abided by 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 had back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting isn’t good either as it strained disc fibers and raised intradiscal pressure. Consequently, Recent research suggested using a “free posture” that it was neither too kyphotic or lordotic curved. This used both active and passive spine elements in a more balanced manner. (3) This concept of balance makes practical sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who are well aware what triggers their back pain flare-ups.


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 top 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 values how beneficial our Fort Wayne back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain helps them recover. Knowledge like this and a tool can create great outcomes!


Could today’s fancy tech improve posture? Potentially, it may do so quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is valuable; feedback changes habits. In a new study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device for only 15 minutes a day boosted participants’ reports on physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress as well as neck and back posture compared to a group who did not use the device. (1) We – including your Fort Wayne chiropractor – may have the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but when it comes down to it, we just aren’t that observant on our own! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is here to help.
