Is Your Posture Causing Back Pain?

The answer is YES. Almost always.

Most back pain is not caused by one traumatic event. Rather, it is an accumulation of many minor injuries, over a long period of time, coupled with poor postural habits (like slouching). Finally a tipping point is reached and pain is the result.

We all sit too much! Our bodies were not meant for this. Back in the day we were in constant motion, hunting and gathering. Thankfully those days are gone but what replaced it is a more sedentary lifestyle and really bad posture.

If your spine is not aligned and balanced, your joints become overloaded, the ligaments shorten and the muscles are under constant stress. Poor posture or poor postural habits cause spinal imbalance.

Sometimes back pain can be a result of another area being injured like a knee or hip. Taking the weight off one area puts it somewhere else. Oftentimes, it is the spine. You are crooked!

We get used to bad posture. It's our normal.

Did you know every 1" your head is in front of your body adds and extra 10 pounds of weight to your neck?

THE PLUMB LINE

Is supposed to be through the middle of the ear, the middle of the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle.

The only area lined up is the shoulder, everything else is OFF.

  • His head is 2" too far forward (add 20 pounds to the neck).
  • His pelvis is 1" too far forward (add 20 pounds to his low back).
  • In order for him to balance, he is on the forefront of his foot, right over the arch. Is he a candidate for plantar fascitis?

As we age we tend to round forward. It's like the body is caving in on itself.


Back Pain is Epidemic

You Are Not Alone

Almost the entire population (93%) of America has experienced back pain. And let me repeat myself, most is NOT from an injury. It is because of POOR POSTURE.

Clearly we experience temporary back pain from things like repetitive lifting, gardening, a too long hike, driving for many hours. All explainable. But, if your back pain seems to come out of nowhere, blame it on your posture.

Your spine is strong and stable when you practice healthy posture. But when you slouch or stoop, your muscles and ligaments strain to keep you balanced. Excessive weight in areas where it should not be causes the joints and discs in your spine to break down, erode.

If you could do something to avoid back pain, why wouldn't you? Maintaining good posture whether you are sitting, standing, exercising, or just relaxing is a good life goal.
