Hope for Orchard Park, NY Back and Neck Pain Due to Slouching and Poor Posture

Our parents and caregivers warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Certainly, our Orchard Park, NY chiropractor does now! Did we or do we pay attention? Not likely when we were young and a very few of us who are older and wiser now. Novelli Wellness Center understands and embraces slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Novelli Wellness Center for Orchard Park, NY back pain relief and neck pain relief from your slouching ways. Leave Novelli Wellness Center 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 as well as lower levels of general health, emotional well-being, and energy/fatigue. (1) Spinal angles need to 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 had back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting isn’t good either as it strained disc fibers and increased intradiscal pressure. Consequently, Recent research suggested 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 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 believe brings on their pain. Active movements (35%), static postures (28.1%), overdoing a task (5.3%), biomechanical issues, lack of exercise, work and medications top the list. Some Orchard Park, NY back pain sufferers will concur that even nonbiomedical matters like psychological state/stress/anxiety, weather, sleep, diet and fatigue may trigger back pain. (4) Your Orchard Park, NY chiropractor is aware of how beneficial our Orchard Park, NY back pain patients’ understanding of their pain helps them recover. Knowledge like this and a tool can create great outcomes!


Could today’s fancy tech improve posture? Potentially, 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 just 15 minutes a day boosted participants’ reports on physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress as well as neck and back posture compared to a group who didn’t use the device. (1) We – including your Orchard Park, NY 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! Novelli Wellness Center is here to help.
