Pain and Posture

A recent study  It Hurts When I Do This (or You Do That): Posture and Pain Tolerance authored by Vanessa K. Bohns and  Scott. S. Wiltermuth in the Journal of Experimental Psychology found that the power of good or dominant postures can decrease the intensity of pain experienced by an individual.   More upright power positions can reduce the perception of pain and even contribute to improved strength.  Good posture appears to have an influence beyond pure postural related pain syndromes! When in pain sit up straight.  At Apex Orthopedic Rehabilitation in Paramus< NJ we are constantly working on postural awareness and now we have even more reasons to emphasize this for all our patients and various painful conditions.
