Research into the effect of posture on pain in some women

Research into the effect of posture on pain in some women

Are you interested in contributing to medical research?

We are trying to help Dr. Kelly Ann Bowles and Megan Jepson with their research project to see if posture and body shape affect shoulder and/or neck pain in some women.

The aim of the study is to understand the causes of neck and shoulder pain in women by looking at posture and body shape (Your breasts can be a big factor in both your posture and body shape). By gathering this information the hope is to positively influence outcomes for women going forward. This data can potentially influence bra design and the indications for breast procedures like breast reduction.

We all are increasingly aware we live in data driven world now. By gathering data about what factors influence or produce neck and shoulder pain in women, researchers can advocate more strongly for women's health initiatives.

I will keep you updated on the findings when they become available.
