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

Our parents and caregivers warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Undoubtedly, our Largo chiropractor does today! Did we or do we heed their advice? Not most of us when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser today. Hollstrom & Associates Inc understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Hollstrom & Associates Inc for Largo 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 related to things like pain, depression, and stress as well as 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 displayed a significant role in whether a person had back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting isn’t good either as it put a strain on disc fibers and raised intradiscal pressure. Therefore, Recent research recommended using a “free posture” that it was neither too kyphotic or lordotic curved. This used both active and passive spine elements in a more balanced way. (3) This concept of balance makes good sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who know well often what triggers their back pain episodes.


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 Largo 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 Largo chiropractor is aware of how beneficial our Largo back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this and a tool can create great results!


Could today’s tech-y gadgets improve posture? Potentially, it may help quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is beneficial; feedback changes habits. In a recent study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device just 15 minutes a day increased participants’ descriptions of physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress in addition to neck and back posture contrasted with a group who did not use the device. (1) We – your Largo chiropractor too – 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! Hollstrom & Associates Inc is here to help.
