Hope for Easley Back and Neck Pain Due to Slouching and Poor Posture

April 21, 2020

Our parents and caregivers told us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Certainly, our Easley 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 now. Young Chiropractic accepts and welcomes slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Young Chiropractic for Easley neck pain and back pain relief from your slouching ways. Leave Young Chiropractic 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 related to things like pain, depression, and stress as well as 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 had back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting is not good either as it put a strain on disc fibers and increased intradiscal pressure. Therefore, 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 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.


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 Easley 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 Easley chiropractor values how beneficial our Easley back pain patients’ understanding of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this and a tool can create great results!


Could today’s fancy tech help with posture? Possibly, it may help quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is effective; feedback changes habits. In a new study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device just 15 minutes a day increased participants’ reports on physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress in addition to neck and back posture compared to a group who didn’t use the device. (1) We – your Easley chiropractor included – set out with the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but in the end, we just are not very good at it on our own! Young Chiropractic is here to help.
