Bad Posture causes Back Pain – How?
Office goers and people suffering from chronic back pain are often recommended to work on their posture and invest in lumbar support for office chairs. Back pain can be caused by a number of issues and bad posture is certainly on top of the list. Find out more about how bad posture caused spinal pressure and resulting pain.
Sitting with head and shoulders pushed forward can cause muscle strain
People who sit in front of the computer for a long time tend to push their head forward to stare at the screen. This posture disrupts the alignment of the spine with the neck and the skull. As a result, there is enormous amount of pressure on the muscles. Continuous muscle strain resulting from the bad posture can ultimately lead to back as well as neck pain.
Bad posture causes anatomical changes in the spine
When an individual slouches his back for many hours, the spine is stressed and anatomical changes in the spine occur. This results in constricted blood vessels, disrupted blood flow and tightened nerves and ultimately causes back pain. Back brace for posture can be a good solution for this problem.
The muscles of the neck when strained can lead to back pain and chronic headache
The neck sits on top of the spine and the curvature of the spine (caused due to bad posture) causes the position of the neck and the head to go out of line. This causes the muscles around the shoulder joints (subcapularis muscles) and the muscles located on the back of the neck to feel the pressure. The stress is slowly transmitted to the back as well as the head thus causing chronic pain.
