Help for Ottawa Back Pain Connected to Poor Posture at The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider

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

Of course we were often told to stand up straight! Posture matters. Ottawa back pain patients know this. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider makes certain that they do! Poor posture and back pain are often seen together. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider treats poor posture and back pain together. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider and our Ottawa chiropractic patients experience improvement in one often results in improvement in the other.


Many factors play a role in how posture and Ottawa back pain are linked. The whole mechanism of the body really is at work as Pilates suggests. Researchers say that poor posture is reported to change joint position and trigger pain, like back pain. Musculoskeletal back pain is improved when postural issues are addressed. (1) Recent research states that even patients with plantar heel pain find themselves with more low back pain and 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 documented to appear on the longer leg side. Sciatica (leg pain) and disc protrusion do , too. (3,4,5) Leg length inequality affects posture and may trigger back pain. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider takes care of all of these concerns with chiropractic care options like spinal manipulation, exercise and occasionally orthotic lifts for our Ottawa chiropractic patients.


A foundation of the Ottawa chiropractic treatment plan for patients with Ottawa back pain and postural issues is frequently manual therapy spinal manipulation (after a thorough examination, of course!). The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider chooses this option as spinal research discloses that it’s effective along with posture correction. Manual therapy treatment boosts 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) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider uses posture-correcting, pain-reducing Ottawa chiropractic care.
