Help for McHenry Back Pain Connected to Poor Posture at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic

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

No wonder we were often cautioned to stand up straight! Posture matters. McHenry back pain patients are quite familiar with this. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic makes sure that they do! Poor posture and back pain are often seen together. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic treats poor posture and back pain together. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic and our McHenry chiropractic patients find that improvement in one often is followed by improvement in the other.


Many issues influence the relationship between McHenry back pain and posture. The whole mechanism of the body truly is at work as Pilates suggests. Researchers point out that poor posture is reported to modify joint position and cause pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is bettered when postural issues are fixed. (1) Recent research reports that even patients who experience plantar heel pain experience 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 recorded to occur on the longer leg side. Sciatica (leg pain) and disc protrusion do as well. (3,4,5) Leg length inequality affects posture and may trigger back pain. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic addresses all of these issues with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and sometimes orthotic lifts for our McHenry chiropractic patients.


A foundation of the McHenry chiropractic treatment plan for patients with McHenry back pain and postural issues is often manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a thorough examination, of course!). OrthoIllinois Chiropractic selects this option as spinal research indicates that it’s effective accompanied by posture correction. Manual therapy treatment enhances posture improvement and low pain reduction more significantly than low back massage. (6) Three treatments of manipulation improved posture control and reduced pain in a female patient complaining of low back pain and altered balance. (7) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic uses posture-correcting, pain-reducing McHenry chiropractic care.
