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

Our moms and dads warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Undoubtedly, our Sitka 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 now. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka accepts and welcomes slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka for Sitka back pain relief and neck pain relief from your slouching ways. Leave Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka 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 must be respected which slouching do not 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 suggested 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 flare-ups.


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 top the list. Some Sitka 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 Sitka chiropractor values how helpful our Sitka back pain patients’ understanding of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this plus a tool can make great results!


Could today’s fancy tech improve posture? Potentially, it may do so quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is valuable; feedback changes habits. In a new study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device just 15 minutes a day boosted participants’ reports on physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress as well as neck and back posture compared to a group who did not use the device. (1) We – including your Sitka chiropractor – 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! Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka is here to help.
