Causes of Postural Pain

Postural pain and disorders can arise from a variety of factors, including:

Poor posture habits: Consistently standing, sitting, or lying in unnatural or uncomfortable positions can strain your muscles, joints, and spine.

    • Muscle imbalances: Weak or tight muscles can create imbalances that throw off your alignment and place undue stress on certain parts of your body.

    • Injury or trauma: Accidents or injuries can lead to postural problems by affecting the alignment of bones, muscles, and joints.

    • Congenital conditions: Some people are born with structural abnormalities that cause postural problems.

    • Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions such as scoliosis, osteoporosis, or arthritis can contribute to postural pain and disorders.

    • Poor ergonomics: Repetitive or prolonged activities in work or daily life. For example, using a computer or carrying heavy loads, can cause postural pain if proper ergonomics are not followed.

    • Psychological factors: Stress, anxiety, and depression can cause muscle tension and affect posture, leading to postural pain.

It’s important to identify the underlying cause of postural pain and disorders in order to effectively treat and prevent them. Our physical therapists can help you develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs.
