Hope for Colorado Springs Back and Neck Pain Due to Slouching and Poor Posture

Our moms and dads told us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Certainly, our Colorado Springs chiropractor does today! Did we or do we pay attention? Very few of us if any when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser today. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR for Colorado Springs neck pain and back pain relief from your slouching ways. Leave The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 linked 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 respected which slouching do not do. The pelvic angle, the angle of pelvic tilt, body mass index and thoracic kyphosis angle played 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 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 tell 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 Colorado Springs back pain sufferers will concur that even nonbiomedical concerns like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your Colorado Springs chiropractor values how beneficial our Colorado Springs back pain patients’ understanding of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this plus a tool can make great outcomes!


Could today’s tech-y gadgets help with posture? Possibly, it may help quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is good; 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 didn’t use the device. (1) We – your Colorado Springs chiropractor too – set out with the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but when it comes down to it, we just aren’t very good at it on our own! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is here to help.
