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

Our parents and caregivers warned us about slouching. Our teachers did, too. Undoubtedly, our Millville chiropractor does today! Did we or do we listen? Not likely when we were young and maybe a small number who are older and wiser now. Wilson Family Chiropractic accepts and welcomes slouchers and poor posture folks. Come to Wilson Family Chiropractic for Millville neck pain and back pain relief from your slouching ways. Leave Wilson Family Chiropractic with tips on how to keep posture-influenced pain and distress at bay.


Slouching posture isn’t good at all, not good for your spine, your health, your mood. Slouching is connected 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 respected which slouching doesn’t do. The pelvic angle, the angle of pelvic tilt, body mass index and thoracic kyphosis angle displayed a significant role in whether a person experienced back pain or not. (2) Slouching while lifting is not good either as it put a strain on disc fibers and raised 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 good sense to chiropractors and their chiropractic patients who are well aware what triggers their back pain flare-ups.


Back pain sufferers can tell us chiropractors what they think 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 Millville 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 Millville chiropractor understands how helpful our Millville back pain patients’ knowledge of their pain boosts their recovery. Knowledge like this plus a tool can make great results!


Could today’s tech-y gadgets help with posture? Possibly, it may do so quite a bit!  As with anything in life, feedback is valuable; feedback changes habits. In a recent study of feedback on posture using a wearable feedback device just 15 minutes a day improved participants’ descriptions of physical functioning, emotions, energy/fatigue, confidence, overall stress as well as neck and back posture compared to a group who did not use the device. (1) We – including your Millville chiropractor – may have the best of intentions to “watch” our posture, but in the end, we just are not that observant on our own! Wilson Family Chiropractic is here to help.
