Help for Sitka Back Pain Connected to Poor Posture at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka

Good posture can be successfully acquired only when the entire mechanism of the body is under perfect control. - Joseph Pilates

Of course we were often told to stand up straight! Posture matters. Sitka back pain patients know this. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka ensures that they do! Poor posture and back pain often go together. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka treats them together. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka and our Sitka chiropractic patients see improvement in one often is followed by improvement in the other.


Many issues factor into the connection between Sitka back pain and posture. The body mechanism truly is at work as Pilates suggests. Researchers point out that poor posture is documented to change joint position and produce pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is improved when postural issues are addressed. (1) Recent research reports that even patients with plantar heel pain feel more low back pain and higher rates of low back pain disability because of decreased foot and ankle function. (2) When one leg is shorter than the other, hip pain is documented to occur on the longer leg side. Sciatica (leg pain) and disc protrusion do as well. (3,4,5) Leg length inequality affects posture and may produce back pain. Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka takes care of this myriad of concerns with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and occasionally orthotic lifts for all of our Sitka back pain patients.


A basis of the Sitka chiropractic treatment plan for patients with Sitka back pain and postural issues is many times manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a thorough examination, of course!). Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka picks this option as spinal research discloses that it is effective along with posture correction. Manual therapy treatment boosts posture improvement and low pain reduction more significantly than low back massage. (6) Three treatments of manipulation improved posture control and decreased pain in a female patient experiencing low back pain and uneven balance. (7) Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka offers posture-correcting, pain-reducing Sitka chiropractic care.
