Is Poor Pelvic Posture Common in Teens?

Posted by:

Using 3D digital technology to evaluate the pelvic posture of 32 adolescents, researchers found that the majority of teens exhibited abnormal pelvic and total body posture. This is concerning as postural changes, especially in the pelvis, can place added stress on the lower back, which can result in lower back pain.

Musculoskeletal Pain Influences Balance.

Posted by:

For older adults, falling down can result in a serious injury that can dramatically reduce their mobility and independence. In this study, researchers measured pain intensity, postural sway, and concerns about falling in 48 seniors with either neck or low back pain. The research team found that intense neck pain paired with limited neck mobility led to significant changes in postural balance, while intense low back pain significantly increased the fear of falling down.

Heel Posture Plays Role in Back Pain.

Posted by:

A recent study set out to investigate the influence of calcaneal (heel) position on the pelvic and trunk alignment of ten healthy subjects. Using 3-D motion analysis, the researchers found that calcaneal inversion (commonly seen among those with a high arch) can affect the alignment of the pelvic and trunk, increasing the risk for back pain. The findings reveal the importance evaluating the foot and ankle when assessing low back pain patients.
