Proper Posture Techniques to Minimize Neck & Back Pain, Groton, Connecticut

Whether you’re hunched in your office chair or carry a heavy bag that causes you to slouch, poor posture is one of the leading causes of neck and back pain. To relieve your pain, the Advanced Back and Neck Care Center provides a range of top-quality services to residents throughout Groton, CT, including massage therapy and chiropractic care. 

Between visits, the experts share some techniques to improve your posture:

1. When Sitting in a Chair 

When seated, it’s important to keep your back straight and your shoulders pressed back. Remember to keep your glutes touching the back of the chair and distribute your weight evenly on both hips. Avoid crossing your legs and leaning to a particular side.

2. When Sitting at a Computer 

back-painIf you work in an office, take advantage of the benefits offered by an ergonomic chair. To avoid back pain, keep your shoulders over your hips to maintain good support, and keep your feet flat on the floor. Your computer monitor should be at eye-level, and the mouse should be close enough that the elbows are in a bent position.

3. Standing Up From a Seated Position 

Maintaining proper posture is important, even when standing up from your chair. Keep your toes and knees in line, then bend forward so your nose is over your toes. Stand up from your chair in a controlled manner to avoid overexerting your back.

If you’re experiencing neck and back pain, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and massage therapy offer great sustainable treatments. The physicians at Advanced Back and Neck Care Center not only strengthen and energize their patients, but remove the source of the issue too. Call (860) 448-2225 to schedule an appointment or visit their website to browse a comprehensive list of services.
