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

Our parents and caregivers told us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Undoubtedly, our Manahawkin chiropractor does now! Did we or do we pay attention? Very few of us if any when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser today. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Manahawkin Chiropractic Center for Manahawkin neck pain and back pain relief from your slouching ways. Go away 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 connected 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 abided by 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 put a strain on disc fibers and raised intradiscal pressure. Therefore, 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 good sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who are well aware what triggers their back pain bouts.


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 Manahawkin back pain sufferers will concur that even nonbiomedical matters like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your Manahawkin chiropractor values how helpful our Manahawkin back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this plus a tool can create great results!


Could today’s tech-y gadgets improve posture? Possibly, it may help quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is beneficial; feedback changes habits. In a recent 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 along with neck and back posture contrasted with a group who did not use the device. (1) We – including your Manahawkin chiropractor – set out with the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but in the end, we just are not that observant on our own! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is here to help.
