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

April 21, 2020

Our moms and dads told us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Certainly, our Nashua chiropractor does now! Did we or do we heed their advice? Not likely when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser now. Moriarty Chiropractic understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Moriarty Chiropractic for Nashua back pain relief and neck pain relief from your slouching ways. Leave Moriarty Chiropractic 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 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 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 is not good either as it strained disc fibers and increased intradiscal pressure. Consequently, Recent research recommended 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 practical 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 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 Nashua back pain sufferers will agree that even nonbiomedical matters like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your Nashua chiropractor understands how beneficial our Nashua back pain patients’ understanding of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this and a tool can make great outcomes!


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