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 cautioned to stand up straight! Posture matters. Southern New Hampshire back pain patients know this. New Hampshire Spine and Sport makes certain that they do! Poor posture and back pain are often seen together. New Hampshire Spine and Sport treats them together. New Hampshire Spine and Sport and our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients find that improvement in one often is followed by improvement in the other.
POSTURE AND Southern New Hampshire BACK PAIN
Many issues factor into the connection between Southern New Hampshire back pain and posture. The whole mechanism of the body truly is at work as Pilates says. Researchers point out that poor posture is documented to modify joint position and trigger pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is improved when postural issues are corrected. (1) Recent research reports that even patients with plantar heel pain feel more low back pain as well as higher rates of low back pain disability due to decreased foot and ankle function. (2) If 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 , too. (3,4,5) Leg length inequality modifies posture and may produce back pain. New Hampshire Spine and Sport takes care of this myriad of issues with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and sometimes orthotic lifts for our Southern New Hampshire chiropractic patients.
TREATMENT FOR POSTURE RELATED BACK PAIN
A basis of the Southern New Hampshire chiropractic treatment plan for patients with Southern New Hampshire back pain and postural issues is many times manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a full examination, of course!). New Hampshire Spine and Sport selects this option as spinal research indicates that it’s valuable along with posture correction. Manual therapy treatment enhances posture improvement and low pain reduction more significantly than low back massage. (6) Three sessions of manipulation improved posture control and decreased pain in a female patient experiencing low back pain and altered balance. (7) New Hampshire Spine and Sport offers posture-correcting, pain-reducing Southern New Hampshire chiropractic care.
