Help for Watertown Back Pain Connected to Poor Posture at Watertown Wellness Center

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

Of course we were always advised to stand up straight! Posture matters. Watertown back pain patients are quite familiar with this. Watertown Wellness Center makes sure that they do! Poor posture and back pain often go together. Watertown Wellness Center treats poor posture and back pain together. Watertown Wellness Center and our Watertown chiropractic patients find that improvement in one often is followed by improvement in the other.


Many considerations play a role in how posture and Watertown back pain are linked. The whole mechanism of the body truly is at work as Pilates suggests. Researchers say that poor posture is documented to modify joint position and produce pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is improved when postural issues are corrected. (1) Recent research reports that even patients who experience plantar heel pain find themselves with more low back pain and higher rates of low back pain disability because of reduced 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 , too. (3,4,5) Leg length inequality modifies posture and may initiate back pain. Watertown Wellness Center takes care of all of these issues with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and occasionally orthotic lifts for our Watertown chiropractic patients.


A foundation of the Watertown chiropractic treatment plan for patients with Watertown back pain and postural issues is many times manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a full examination, of course!). Watertown Wellness Center chooses this option as spinal research indicates that it is effective accompanied by posture correction. Manual therapy treatment enhances 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 with low back pain and altered balance. (7) Watertown Wellness Center uses posture-correcting, pain-reducing Watertown chiropractic care.
