Hope for St. Francisville Back and Neck Pain Due to Slouching and Poor Posture

Our moms and dads told us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Certainly, our St. Francisville chiropractor does now! Did we or do we heed their advice? Not most of us when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser today. Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville accepts and welcomes slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville for St. Francisville neck pain and back pain relief from your slouching ways. Leave Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville with tips on how to keep posture-influenced pain and distress at bay.


Slouching posture is just not good, 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 need to be respected which slouching do not do. The pelvic angle, the angle of pelvic tilt, body mass index and thoracic kyphosis angle displayed a significant role in whether a person had back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting is not good either as it strained 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 are well aware what triggers their back pain bouts.


Back pain sufferers can tell us chiropractors what they believe brings on 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 St. Francisville back pain sufferers will agree that even nonbiomedical concerns like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your St. Francisville chiropractor values how beneficial our St. Francisville back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this and a tool can create great outcomes!


Could today’s tech-y gadgets improve posture? Potentially, it may do so quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is beneficial; feedback influences change. In a new study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device for only 15 minutes a day improved participants’ descriptions of 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. (1) We – your St. Francisville chiropractor too – set out with the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but when it comes down to it, we just are not very good at it on our own! Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville is here to help.
