Lower Back Pain, Poor Posture, and Rolfing

Lower Back Pain, Poor Posture, and Rolfing

Many factors can influence how we experience the long-term affects of lower back pain. To solely think about the point of the pain can be limiting in looking for long-term solutions for a long-term problem.

How we care for our posture has a direct affect on the degree to which lower back pain can occur.

For example, imbalances at the pelvis (hips) and lower extremity (legs) can impact on our ability to support the lower back, by shifting our weight too far forward, too far back, or applying weight on one leg more than the other.

By providing options for standing, sitting, and walking it is possible to work towards easing symptoms.

More importantly, by having a greater understanding of posture awareness and education it is possible to remove the triggers that can eventually lead to lower back pain.

In essence, the level of posture care we embody now can lead to long-term health and wellbeing of the spine, and more importantly, the person as a whole.
