Help for Baton Rouge Back Pain Connected to Poor Posture at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation

Good posture can be successfully acquired only when the entire mechanism of the body is under perfect control. - Joseph Pilates

No wonder we were always cautioned to stand up straight! Posture matters. Baton Rouge back pain patients are quite familiar with this. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation makes certain that they do! Poor posture and back pain are often seen together. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation treats them together. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation and our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients find that improvement in one often is followed by improvement in the other.


Many factors play a role in how posture and Baton Rouge back pain are related. The whole mechanism of the body really is at work as Pilates says. Researchers say that poor posture is documented to alter joint position and trigger pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is bettered when postural issues are addressed. (1) Recent research states that even plantar heel pain patients feel more low back pain as well as higher rates of low back pain disability because of decreased foot and ankle function. (2) If one leg is shorter than the other, hip pain is documented to appear on the longer leg side. Sciatica (leg pain) and disc protrusion do as well. (3,4,5) Leg length inequality affects posture and may produce back pain. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation addresses all of these concerns with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and occasionally orthotic lifts for our Baton Rouge chiropractic patients.


A foundation of the Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan for patients with Baton Rouge back pain and postural issues is often manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a full examination, of course!). Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation chooses this option as spinal research presents that it’s valuable along with posture correction. Manual therapy treatment furthers posture improvement and low pain reduction more significantly than low back massage. (6) Three sessions of manipulation improved posture control and decreased pain in a female patient complaining of low back pain and uneven balance. (7) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation uses posture-correcting, pain-reducing Baton Rouge chiropractic care.
