Lower back pain can come from poor posture, improper alignment, injury, weak muscles, imbalanced muscles or repetitive motion (just to name a few causes). The good news is that whatever the cause, the problem can most often be fixed. For example, the position you put your body into will determine your posture which will determine your ability to move and function. If you slouch, you're not using your muscles as they should be used which can lead it injury and pain. Slouching causes you to round your upper back , elevate your shoulder blades and rotate them out of position. Your muscles are then too "stretched out" to contract properly and support your frame - hence the pain and stiffness! Therefore, fix the slouch - fix the pain! At Meridian Healing Center, we understand how your entire body works together and we can show you how to live pain free.
