Hope for Baton Rouge Back and Neck Pain Due to Slouching and Poor Posture

Our moms and dads warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Certainly, our Baton Rouge chiropractor does now! Did we or do we listen? Not most of us when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser today. Spine & Sports Rehab Center accepts and welcomes slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Spine & Sports Rehab Center for Baton Rouge back pain relief and neck pain relief from your slouching ways. Go away 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 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 doesn’t 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 is not good either as it put a strain on disc fibers and raised intradiscal pressure. Consequently, Recent research suggested using a “free posture” that it was neither too kyphotic or lordotic curved. Thus it used both active and passive spine elements in a more balanced manner. (3) This concept of balance makes practical sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who know well often what triggers their back pain bouts.


Back pain sufferers can explain to 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 Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge chiropractor values how beneficial our Baton Rouge back pain patients’ understanding of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this and a tool can create great results!


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 improved participants’ descriptions of physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress in addition to neck and back posture contrasted with a group who did not use the device. (1) We – including your Baton Rouge chiropractor – may have the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but in the end, we just are not very good at it on our own! Spine & Sports Rehab Center is here to help.
