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

Our parents and caregivers warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Undoubtedly, our Richmond chiropractor does today! Did we or do we pay attention? Not most of us when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser now. Johnson Chiropractic understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Johnson Chiropractic for Richmond back pain relief and neck pain relief from your slouching ways. Leave Johnson Chiropractic 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 abided by which slouching doesn’t do. The pelvic angle, the angle of pelvic tilt, body mass index and thoracic kyphosis angle had a significant role in whether a person experienced back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting isn’t good either as it strained disc fibers and raised intradiscal pressure. Therefore, Recent research recommended 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 way. (3) This concept of balance makes good sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who know well often what triggers their back pain episodes.


Back pain sufferers can tell us chiropractors what they think 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 Richmond back pain sufferers will concur that even nonbiomedical issues like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your Richmond chiropractor understands how beneficial our Richmond back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this plus a tool can create great outcomes!


Could today’s tech-y gadgets improve posture? Possibly, it may help quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is good; feedback changes habits. In a new 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 didn’t use the device. (1) We – your Richmond chiropractor too – may have the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but in the end, we just aren’t that observant on our own! Johnson Chiropractic is here to help.
