Due to different causes such as gravity, ground reaction forces, ligaments, and muscular contractions we might be living with some level of spinal compression. The compression of the spine will lead to even more serious complications, chronic low back pain is one of the main and most common causes of visits to the chiropractor and lost workdays.
At some point in our life, we will eventually develop some kind of chronic and repeating pain in our back due to pressure along the spine. Most people start having symptoms like neck pain, hips, and some discomfort in the lower part of the ribs and go to their doctor for a check-up. After an examination and having ruled out any pathology that could be causing these discomforts, then most probably, it’s the result of a consistent and uncorrected improper posture on the spine.
What is Posture?
According to Medicine Plus – Guide to Good Posture, posture is “how you hold your body when you are moving but also when you are not moving, that is called Dynamic posture and Static posture respectively. The best reference to a good posture is that of a young child. The natural curves of the spine are maintained and therefore they move with no effort. The correct position of the spine when performing an activity is the key to a good posture.”
Improper or Poor Posture
An Improper Posture refers then to the increase or flattening of these three natural curves of the spine (neck, mid/upper back, and lower back), causing a great deal of pressure on the spine. When no health condition is to blame, the most common reason for complications like back, neck, and shoulder pain is bad posture. Everyday activities, when done with poor posture, can develop bad posture habits or conditions that can cause negative effects such as back pain, loss of mobility, rigidity, neck and shoulder pain. Improper posture can cause lots of pressure on your spine, muscle, and nerves. The most common mistakes related to our posture are slouching posture when sitting, hyperlordosis (exaggerated inward curve of the lower back), flat back standing posture, tilting your head down when texting or on the computer, which can promote rounded upper back, holding your phone with your shoulder for long periods can affect your neck, shoulder, and upper back.
Many pain problems are originated from bad habits when standing or sitting. To help improve posture the first step is to treat the pressure over nerves and muscles, there is when Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy is in handy. Spinal decompression Therapy will help to stretch the spine and separate the vertebrae, reducing pain and pressure, restoring the natural alignment of the spine. As treatment starts to alleviate pain and discomfort, patients will start to have better posture when walking, sitting, and improving posture habits in general.
Non-surgical Spinal Decompression is a wonderful option for numerous reasons:
- It is a pain-free and non-invasive treatment with no recovery time and no medication needed.
- It is highly effective, for patients to the point where surgery is needed, Non-surgical Decompression Therapy will help avoid surgery improving quality of life.
- It doesn’t need long sessions, every session will last around 30-45 minutes and the results are long-lasting when done consistently.
- Improves overall posture, once pain and pressure on the spine have been addressed patients will show a dramatic improvement in posture and therefore less pain and discomfort.
