The aim of the study were: postural habits assessment in young, healthy people, attempt to modify bad habits, describing relationship between postural errors and perceptible ailments.
Material and methods. 144 people, aged 18-23 were tested. Interventions: 1st stage – postural habits identification, description of reactions to stress, back pain frequency and intensity; 2nd stage - correction of habitual position with physiotherapist, briefing about ergonomic everyday behaviours and consequences of continued non-ergonomic behaviours, 3rd stage (after at least one month) behaviours and perceptible changes assessment; 4th stage (after next 3 months) – results assessment. Main outcome measures: Interview-survey to describe postural behaviours and reactions to stress (then, demonstration) and pain assessment (according to Jackson-Moskovitz scheme), reactions to introduced modifications or reasons and time of training abandonment indication, statistical description: χ² test, p<0.005.
Results. All examinees presented poor postural patterns, in half – back pain occurred. Statistical relationships between pain and habitual positions were noted in cervical and lumbar spine. Abdominal pain as reaction to stress in people with thoracic kyphosis. Introduced behaviours modifications caused lumbar or thighs muscles pain. Positive reactions: better urination and/or defecation. Some examinees abandoned behaviours modification attempt during the first month, the majority – during the next three months.
Conclusions. 1. Attempt to eliminate prevalent non-ergonomic postural behaviours results usually in pain, which is often the cause of abandoning working on modification. 2. Discomfort is reduced after 3-4 months of systematic training.
