Why Does Your Back Hurt When You Move?

Many people associate poor posture with sedentary activities, such as sitting in a chair or lying down in a bed. However, you can also use bad posture during physical activities, such as running, walking, and even stooping. The way you hold or support your body during movement is called dynamic posture. Static posture refers to how well you hold or support your body during sedentary activities. If your back hurts every time you move, poor dynamic posture may be the cause of it. 

Your musculoskeletal system uses multiple tissues to move your body, including the joints in your neck and muscles in your lower back. If you slouch when you walk or forget to tighten your abs when you work out, you can inadvertently weaken your musculoskeletal organs. Even lifting with your back or knees straight can place strain on your back. Improper lifting is one of the causes of back pain and injury in adults. 

If you struggle to practice good dynamic posture during activities, reach out to a chiropractic care specialist for help. 

How Can You Treat Your Painful Back?

A chiropractor will need to know everything about your daily activities before they can help you improve your dynamic posture. Certain activities can be more taxing on the body than other activities can, including running and basketball. If you're performing these activities without taking breaks or pacing yourself, your muscles may tire out and lead to poor posture.

A chiropractor may also want to learn about your work habits. If you bend from the waist or hips and not the knees, it can also harm your back. A chiropractor can show you the correct way to carry out your activities so that you reduce your risk factors for injuries and improve your dynamic posture.

The next step in your treatment can vary, depending on how severe your back pain and dynamic posture are at the time of your exam. If your back pain is chronic, a chiropractor may adjust your back and spine. Adjustments help decompress the bones in your spine so that they move freely every time you exercise or work.
