How Flat Back Syndrome Benefits from Alternative Medical Care

At Acupractic Natural Healing Center, the alternative medicine office of Dr. Lisa Oskardmay in Chapel Hill, we emphasize whole-body healing through natural means. When postural problems such as flat back syndrome exist in a person, Dr. Oskardmay uses a combination of therapies to support better posture, resulting in less pain and distortion. Patients benefit from care at our office because treatment is gentle and effective, and patients learn exercises and make small changes that have big impacts on their well-being.

What is Flat Back Syndrome?

A person has flat-back syndrome when their back lacks some of the natural protective curvature in the spine, particularly in the lower lumbar region. Reduced lumbar spine curves can impact a person in many ways. Patients may have trouble standing up straight, they likely have anterior head posture and experience undo fatigue at the end of the day. Flat back syndrome may arise from birth, degenerative disc disease, or trauma. Whatever the cause, persons experiencing flat back syndrome suffer inordinate amounts of stress in their joints in part from the lack of resilience the flat back curve creates.

Dr. Oskardmay examines each patient for postural imbalances. She utilizes massage therapy and chiropractic adjustments to the spine and extremities to restore proper spinal bone alignment and relax tight muscles. This helps patients with flat-back syndrome because, over time, postural distortions such as flat-back syndrome damage spinal vertebral connections and muscle balance. Over time this causes undue pressure on the nerves. Dr. Oskardmay may use Activator adjusting or hands-on manual adjustments to improve spine biomechanics and nerve flow throughout the body.

Using Acupuncture treatment to improve qi flow throughout the body, Dr. Oskardmay helps the spine and connected ligaments heal. Acupuncture is a time-tested therapy that helps reduce stress, and improve restful sleep and digestion, as well.

Additionally, we recognize the crucial role exercise has in the treatment of postural distortions. In flat back syndrome, the pelvis is tipped backward. This may be because of an imbalance in the thigh abdominal and back muscles. Employing stretching and strengthening protocols designed to stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak ones, Dr. Oskardmay supports postural imbalance in key ways.

Each patient is unique and, in our office, we strive to help each person obtain better health using natural means. Persons with flat back syndrome, lordotic posture, sway back posture, and other postural deviations all benefit from natural chiropractic and acupuncture medicine. With additional help using balanced exercises, Dr. Oskardmay can help many people suffering from back pain, fatigue, anterior head carriage, and other conditions associated with postural deviation such as flat back syndrome.
