Help for Eugene Back Pain Connected to Poor Posture at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic

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

No wonder we were always admonished to stand up straight! Posture matters. Eugene back pain patients know this. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic makes certain that they do! Poor posture and back pain are often seen together. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic treats them together. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic and our Eugene chiropractic patients see improvement in one often is followed by improvement in the other.


Many considerations affect how posture and Eugene back pain are related. The whole mechanism of the body really is at work as Pilates suggests. Researchers write that poor posture is reported to alter joint position and cause pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is improved when postural issues are corrected. (1) Recent research states that even patients with 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) When one leg is shorter than the other, hip pain is recorded 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. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic addresses all of these issues with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and sometimes orthotic lifts for all of our Eugene back pain patients.


A basis of the Eugene chiropractic treatment plan for patients with Eugene back pain and postural issues is often manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a thorough examination, of course!). Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic chooses this option as spinal research shows that it is valuable accompanied by posture correction. Manual therapy treatment enhances 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 with low back pain and altered balance. (7) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic uses posture-correcting, pain-reducing Eugene chiropractic care.
