Does your back ache throughout the day? Many people who spend their work day at a desk or behind the wheel of a vehicle accept back pain as part of their job description but it does not have to be.
Postural syndrome, also known as ‘Poor Posture Syndrome,’ results from the body being positioned with compromised posture for extended periods of time. If you sit in a slouched position your back is in the same position it would be in if you were to bend over and touch your toes. This is the ‘maximal bend’ of your back and places a considerable amount of pressure on the joints in your back. This prolonged stretching on the back naturally causes aches and pain.
Postural Syndrome typically exhibits itself in pain and dull aches throughout the back, the area between the shoulder blades and the neck. Typically, the pain is the most severe while the body is in the anatomically incorrect posture while sitting, standing or lying. Over time, functioning with poor posture can also result in compromised neck strength, reduced range of motion, scar tissue and misaligned joints.
Fortunately, postural syndrome can be effectively treated with holistic therapies. Treatment goals typically focus on relieving pain, restoring balanced muscle strength, reestablishing full range of motion and establishing ergonomically correct posture.
