Pain and Bad Posture
January 24th, 2018
Whether chronic or new, your pain may be the result of bad posture. Stretching is one of the most important methods of exercise instituted during physical therapy. This releases tension and lactic acid caught in certain muscles groups. The piriformis muscle is the culprit for many people with low back and sciatic pain. This can help be alleviated by the knee-to-chest stretch that many of us are familiar with. This helps relieve the pain by stretching that muscle, and improves your posture by helping your lower body be able to properly support your core.
With so many people suffering from chronic back pain, and many of those seeking alternative measure to medical intervention, stretching and other forms of physical therapy can do a great deal of good to many chronic pain sufferers. Posture is important for pain, because sitting wrong stresses muscles in your body.
Stretching can both alleviate the symptoms of poor posture and improve your posture in the future.
