As we are increasingly dependent on technology in today’s digital world, we are spending more and more time on devices. This has led to a myriad of health issues arising from the overuse of devices, such as eye strain, neck stiffness, shoulder, and lower back pain, as well as bad posture.
Kyphosis is commonly caused by poor posture due to frequent ‘texting’, scrolling on mobile devices, or slouching down to look at screens for an extended period. The tell-tale sign of Kyphosis is an abnormal middle back appearance that is rounded and hump-like. You may experience tiredness, strain, and pain along your back, shoulders, and neck as well.
It is important that if you have Kyphosis, to be aware of your posture and correct the problem as soon as possible to reduce inflammation and prevent further degeneration. This is where your chiropractor can help.
Your chiropractor can perform spinal adjustments to improve motion to the spine, release restricted joints, and stimulate the nervous system. Regular visits can help maintain the health of your spine and overall wellbeing.
By improving muscle strength through Chiropractic care, you also optimise the motion in the spine and decrease muscle spasms associated with the condition. A stronger back means that you can be on the way to a proper posture sooner.
Treating chronic pain
Chiropractic care can reduce the stiffness and inflammation caused by Kyphosis, through gentle manipulation that stretches and stimulates soft tissues, bringing relief to discomforts and pain effectively. This minimises the need for unnecessary medication and prevents worsening of the condition that may lead to invasive and costly surgery.
Most importantly, your Chiropractor can guide and assist you in correcting your posture, the root of the issue. There are back strengthening exercises that you can do to reduce the rounded back, which also help you to be more aware of bad habits and be mindful of your back through proper posture. Dealing with the cause of the problem further reduces the need to treat symptoms so that you can focus on maintaining a healthy spine sooner.
