Every day Advice from the British Chiropractic Council
Advice for Everyday Living
When leading a busy lifestyle, the basic warning signs of back problems can go unnoticed. Of course, no one is immune from back pain but chiropractors from the British Chiropractic Association have some simple advice to help.
Many BCA chiropractors are asked by their patients about the ideal posture and the general guidance they give is:
There is no such thing as a ‘perfect posture’; the key is to avoid remaining in positions that cause discomfort, in other words, finding positions to sit, stand and sleep that are comfortable and this will be different for each person. For the many people that report a link between certain positions and back or neck pain, they should be encouraged to vary their posture throughout the day and avoid those positions that cause discomfort. For those people who find that sitting for too long does cause them backache, performing a short series of movements through the day such as ‘Straighten Up UK’ can help to keep you active and reduce this. If the pain persists then see a qualified person such as your local chiropractor to assess and help you start moving again without pain.
