Help for Peoria Back Pain Connected to Poor Posture at Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture

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

Of course we were often told to stand up straight! Posture matters. Peoria back pain patients know this. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture makes certain that they do! Poor posture and back pain often go together. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture treats poor posture and back pain together. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture and our Peoria chiropractic patients see improvement in one often is followed by improvement in the other.


Many issues factor into the connection between Peoria back pain and posture. The whole mechanism of the body truly is at work as Pilates says. Researchers write that poor posture is reported to modify joint position and trigger pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is improved when postural issues are addressed. (1) Recent research states that even patients with plantar heel pain feel more low back pain and higher rates of low back pain disability because of decreased foot and ankle function. (2) When 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 as well. (3,4,5) Leg length inequality affects posture and may trigger back pain. Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture takes care of all of these issues with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and occasionally orthotic lifts for our Peoria chiropractic patients.


A foundation of the Peoria chiropractic treatment plan for patients with Peoria back pain and postural issues is many times manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a thorough examination, of course!). Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture chooses this option as spinal research indicates that it’s valuable along with posture correction. Manual therapy treatment furthers posture improvement and low pain reduction more notably than low back massage. (6) Three treatments of manipulation improved posture control and decreased pain in a female patient experiencing low back pain and altered balance. (7) Carter Chiropractic & Acupuncture uses posture-correcting, pain-reducing Peoria chiropractic care.
