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

Our parents and caregivers warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Undoubtedly, our Carrolltown 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. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation accepts and welcomes slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation for Carrolltown back pain relief and neck pain relief from your slouching ways. Leave Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation 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 in addition to 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 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 not too kyphotic or lordotic curved. This 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 tell us chiropractors what they think brings on 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 Carrolltown back pain sufferers will agree that even nonbiomedical issues like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your Carrolltown chiropractor is aware of how beneficial our Carrolltown back pain patients’ understanding 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 help quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is valuable; feedback influences change. In a recent study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device for only 15 minutes a day increased participants’ descriptions of 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 Carrolltown chiropractor included – set out with the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but in the end, we just aren’t very good at it on our own! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is here to help.
