Improve your posture and help your back Cliffs Chiropractor Southend offers this advice

It often surprises patients experiencing back pain who visit our team of experienced chiropractors in Southend that their posture is a contributory factor of their pain.

Poor posture can lead to back pain.

Poor posture is often a result of a person lifestyle and factors that can lead to it over a period of time include:

  • Spending hours hunched in front of a computer
  • Slouching on a sofa watching TV
  • Sleeping on the wrong kind of mattress
  • Hunching shoulders and back when stressed

You may realise that you are doing some of the above that may be having a negative impact on your posture.

You don’t have to wait to experience back pain before taking action to improve your posture.

As experienced chiropractors in Southend we advise patients on lifestyle and exercise changes they can make to improve their posture.

In addition, we recommend that everyone follows a simple 3 minute programme put together by the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) that has been designed to improve posture and help reduce the risk of back pain called the Straighten Up UK programme.

We recommend that you watch the video and follow the programme.

However, if you are elderly or have ongoing health conditions you should always discuss any new exercise programmed with your GP, chiropractor or other health care practitioner before you start.

Technology is leaving teenagers in pain – a worrying trend reports a chiropractor in Southend

It’s a disturbing trend, however, our experienced team of chiropractors in Southend are seeing an increasing number of young people under the age sixteen with back and neck pain.

This trend is not isolated to Southend alone. In the UK, 40% of 11 to 16 year olds have suffered back or neck pain and worryingly, more than one in seven (15%) parents said their son’s or daughter’s back or neck pain is a result of using a laptop, tablet or computer.*

Poor posture and sedentary lifestyle are common causes that frequently lead to back and neck problems in teenagers.

Teenagers are spending increasing amounts of time using technology such as computers, laptops, tablets and mobile. There is a tendency to sit in a hunched position when using these gadgets which puts a lot of strain on the neck.

The increased use of these kinds of technologies along with watch TV also results in an increase in teenagers leading a sedentary lifestyle and poor posture.

As the Easter holidays are approaching we as Chiropractors in Southend are encouraging parents to limit the time their children spend using technology and instead encourage more active pastimes over the Easter holidays.

However, our chiropractors at Cliffs Chiropractic Clinic in Southend want to advise parents of the importance of seeking help for their children from an expert as soon as pain starts possible – if conditions are left untreated it could lead to chronic back and neck pain in later life.

A helping hand for neck pain at Cliffs chiropractor Southend

Did you know that your neck supports anywhere between 10 to 14 pounds in weight? That’s quite a load to support day in day out.

It’s no wonder then that our team of chiropractors in Southend at Cliffs Chiropractic Clinic provide a helping hand to many neck pain sufferers. In fact many patients visit our chiropractors with problems such as frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and shoulder/arm pain only to discover that their problem originates from their neck.

As one of chiropractors in Southend explains, “Increasingly our lifestyles can lead to postural problems and muscle tension in our necks leading to neck pain, headaches or migraine. Stress and fatigue also add to this muscle tension causing the joints in our necks to become restricted in movement. This in turn can irritate the spinal nerves which leads to ‘referred pain’ in other parts of the body such as the shoulders.”

The good news if you suffering from what you believe to be neck pain is that Chiropractic could offer you a solution. Unlike painkilling drugs, chiropractic treats the cause of the pain not just the symptom.

When you visit one of our experienced team of chiropractors in Southend they will undertake a thorough consultation and examination to help diagnose the exact cause of your pain and recommend the most appropriate course of treatment for you.
