Is Bad Posture Causing Your Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain is a common complaint from our patients since many of them sit at desks to work on a computer for a large portion of the day. Over time, this can move the hips and other joints out of place, causing the muscles and tissues to work harder to compensate. At ADIO Family Chiropractic in Saint Charles, MO, we will realign your bones and relieve your pain.
What Does Bad Posture Look Like?
Not only is sitting for long stretches of time bad for you, how you sit can also cause pain. Typing on a keyboard and using a mouse puts your wrists at an awkward angle. Sitting hunched over in your chair is likely to cause back and neck pain. If your computer screen is not at the correct height, you could be straining your neck and upper back to look up or down at it. The same is true for looking down at your phone screen or tablet for an extended period.
Lower Back Pain from Bad Posture
Lower back pain is the most common symptom of continued bad posture. You may also experience upper back pain from sitting hunched over with rounded shoulders instead of with a straight spine. You may also experience pain in your neck, hips, and knees caused by sitting for most of the day.
