At some point most people will suffer back pain and its impact on their lives can be considerable, from sleeping to sitting and even picking up their children.
One of the major causes of back pain in the UK is poor posture. Our lifestyles often contribute to developing poor posture and back pain.
If you find that you are:
- spending hours a day at a desk or at your computer
- slouched in front of the TV for several hours
- sleeping in a bed that is too hard or soft
- hunching your back and shoulders
your posture is probably suffering and so is your back.
To effectively treat back pain you have to find its cause which a chiropractor is ideally placed to do. An experienced chiropractor will want to understand your daily activities to be able to give you advice and the best treatment for your condition. Your chiropractor may advise you to make postural changes to help improve your posture.
The BCA (British Chiropractic Association) has devised a 3 minute programme called Straighten Up UK to help improve muscle tone, strengthen your spine and improve your posture.
The programme is designed to counteract the sedentary things we do in our everyday lives and is suitable from the very young to the very old.
It is designed to be simple, easy and quick to do every day – just like brushing our teeth.
Watch the video for the 3 minute Straighten Up UK programme. Before starting on the programme ask your chiropractor, GP or health professional about the suitability of these exercises for your specific needs.
