POSTURAL ASSESSMENT AND REALIGNMENT
I will look at your posture and assess it in the treatment session. If it appears that postural problems are causing or adding to your problems and pain, postural realignment will be included as part of your treatment.
Identifying any tight or weak muscles that may be causing you to maintain a poor posture and also any joint stiffness or hypermobility that may cause poor posture.
Postural advice: this includes advice about correct sitting and standing positioning, moving and handling techniques that will help to improve your posture. The advice will be specific to you and therefore will consider your occupation, driving habits and other activities. This will allow you to implement my advice into your day.
Exercises to improve posture: these are exercises that will help you to strengthen any weak muscles or stretch any tight muscles that are causing you to adopt a poor and maybe painful posture. Exercises are also given to loosen stiff joints, or provide more stability to those that are more mobile than they should do.
Anyone with a poor posture, muscle imbalance and pain will benefit from a full postural assessment and realignment. An optimum posture will help you to be more functional and reduce your pain levels.
