Hope for San Jose Back and Neck Pain Due to Slouching and Poor Posture

Our moms and dads told us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Undoubtedly, our San Jose chiropractor does today! 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 today. Chiropractic Solutions understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Chiropractic Solutions for San Jose neck pain and back pain relief from your slouching ways. Go away 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 connected to things like pain, depression, and stress in addition to lower levels of general health, emotional well-being, and energy/fatigue. (1) Spinal angles must 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 experienced back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting is not good either as it strained disc fibers and raised intradiscal pressure. Therefore, 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 flare-ups.


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 San Jose back pain sufferers will agree that even nonbiomedical issues like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your San Jose chiropractor is aware of how helpful our San Jose back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this and a tool can create great outcomes!


Could today’s fancy tech help with posture? Possibly, it may help quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is valuable; feedback influences change. In a new study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device just 15 minutes a day improved 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 San Jose chiropractor – may have the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but when it comes down to it, we just are not very good at it on our own! Chiropractic Solutions is here to help.
