Posture | Embodiment of what we are doing and thinking Addressing Neck and Back Pain Through Improved Posture

For people with neck pain and back pain, posture can make a big difference. Some positions will help to ease the pain, but bad posture can make the pain worse. If you experience neck pain or back pain, it is important to consult with a professional on treatment as soon as possible. Early consultation can help to prevent permanent damage. Mood, especially stress, has a strong influence on body positions. Bent shoulders, hunched back and tight neck muscles are all part of a typical stress posturing, which will make musculoskeletal pain worse.

Both position and cognitive/emotional state are important in the treatment of musculoskeletal pain. Positive thinking can shift stress posturing into a more neutral posture, with a straight spine and relaxed neck muscles. This is a much more healthy position for your body, and will help to lessen pain.

A healthy amount of exercise is also essential for addressing pain due to incorrect posture. Motor involvement and moving the joints is especially important for people who sit at a desk all day. A healthy lifestyle with plenty of exercise is vital for long-term pain relief. Moving the muscles and the joints releases the tension that builds up from chronic stress and maintaining a chair posture at work. Physical activity not only encourages a better body position throughout the day, but it trigger the release of a healthy dose of endorphins, which are natural painkillers.
