As a trusted Gahanna Chiropractor, we see a lot of patients come through our doors who suffer from neck and back pain due to poor posture. Poor posture puts quite a bit of stress on your joints and create painful conditions related to your spine as well as musculoskeletal imbalances. If you have a job where you sit in front of a computer all day, or if you just simply have poor posture in general, you could be putting a lot of unwarranted stress on your back and causing yourself a lot of pain.
Unfortunately, not all of us were born with perfect posture habits or the awareness and ability to correct bad posture. Oftentimes this leaves us with chronic wear and stress of otherwise normal and healthy joints.
Typically, postural faults often include, but are not limited to, rounded shoulders, forward head positioning, and the loss of the natural curve in your lower back. Early warning signs of bad posture and issues arising from bad posture can include the inability to stand or sit for long periods of time, feeling physically exhausted at the end of the day, and stiffness when standing from a chair or seated position. It’s important that you are aware of these warning signs and notice them early. Otherwise, your poor posture can lead to loss of normal flexibility, muscle imbalances, and general pain and discomfort – all of which can seem to come on for no apparent reason.
