Lower Cross Syndrome – Poor Posture & How to Fix It

Many of us spend most of our day sitting for long periods, especially those who work in office jobs. There are detrimental consequences on the effects of prolonged sitting. Even athletes who are active in their spot may also experience lower back problems.

What is Lower Cross Syndrome?

If you feel pressure in the lower back & hips, you may suffer from Lower Cross Syndrome (LCS). Sitting for lengthy durations results in the habit of over and underactive muscles in the front & back of the hips. Poor posture and prolonged sitting will worsen the condition. Pain is not a symptom of this disorder, although you may feel lower back pain if this condition has occurred for an extended period. You may also find it uncomfortable to lay with stretched legs and prefer to lie with your knees bent.

How can I fix my posture and treat LCS?

A physiotherapist can help monitor chronic symptoms of LCS and provide a personalized regimen of stretching and strengthening exercises. It is important to seek physiotherapy for the effective treatment of LCS.

Physiotherapy and treatment for LCS include manipulation of the locked joints combined with coordinated strengthening and stretching. With proper treatment, you will see rapid changes in discomfort and function.

One of the leading causes of LCS is poor posture; fixing your posture before these issues lead to chronic pain is essential. Our experienced physiotherapists at Inspine Therapy in Coquitlam or Port Moody can assess your postural issues and help you fix your condition by providing a detailed plan to get you on your road to recovery.
