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

Our moms and dads warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Certainly, our Brooks chiropractor does today! Did we or do we heed their advice? Not most of us when we were young and maybe a small number who are older and wiser today. Soft Health and Healing Clinic understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Soft Health and Healing Clinic for Brooks back pain relief and neck pain relief from your slouching ways. Go away with tips on how to keep posture-influenced pain and distress at bay.


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 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 isn’t good either as it strained disc fibers and raised intradiscal pressure. Therefore, 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 way. (3) This concept of balance makes practical sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who are well aware what triggers their back pain episodes.


Back pain sufferers can explain to 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 Brooks 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 Brooks chiropractor understands how beneficial our Brooks back pain patients’ understanding of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this plus a tool can make great results!


Could today’s tech-y gadgets improve posture? Possibly, it may do so quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is helpful; feedback influences change. In a recent study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device just 15 minutes a day improved participants’ reports on physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress along with neck and back posture compared to a group who did not use the device. (1) We – your Brooks chiropractor included – may have the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but when it comes down to it, we just are not that observant on our own! Soft Health and Healing Clinic is here to help.
