Help for Georgetown Back Pain Connected to Poor Posture at Dr. Butwell

February 27, 2018

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 admonished to stand up straight! Posture matters. Georgetown back pain patients are quite familiar with this. Dr. Butwell makes sure that they do! Poor posture and back pain are often seen together. Dr. Butwell treats poor posture and back pain together. Dr. Butwell and our Georgetown chiropractic patients find that improvement in one often is followed by improvement in the other.


Many issues factor into the relationship between Georgetown back pain and posture. The body mechanism truly is at work as Pilates suggests. Researchers write that poor posture is documented to alter joint position and cause pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is improved when postural issues are fixed. (1) Recent research reports that even patients who experience plantar heel pain have more low back pain as well as higher rates of low back pain disability due to decreased 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 as well. (3,4,5) Leg length inequality alters posture and may produce back pain. Dr. Butwell takes care of this myriad of concerns with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and occasionally orthotic lifts for all of our Georgetown back pain patients.


A foundation of the Georgetown chiropractic treatment plan for patients with Georgetown back pain and postural issues is often manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a full examination, of course!). Dr. Butwell selects this option as spinal research presents that it is effective together with posture correction. Manual therapy treatment furthers 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 complaining of low back pain and uneven balance. (7) Dr. Butwell uses posture-correcting, pain-reducing Georgetown chiropractic care.
