The Importance of Good Posture

The importance of good posture cannot be stressed enough in modern times. It extends far beyond our outward appearance and aesthetics. Your posture is an indication of muscle balance and mechanical efficiency.

Physios often see cases where postural faults initiate a chain of events that results in incapacitating pain, time off work and costly medical bills. The issue is becoming more relevant as we tend to spend more time at work. However, bad posture can also be problematic at home after hours.

Your physiotherapist can provide professional assistance in achieving and maintaining good posture with

  • A personalised stretching and exercise program that is tailored specifically to you, bracing and/or taping techniques
  • Core-stability exercises
  • Ergonomic advice for your work and home environments

Physiotherapists will also use hands on techniques to treat joint problems by specific joint mobilisation and manipulation.

Good Posture Awareness

Being aware of good posture is the first step to breaking poor postural habits and reducing stress and strain on your body.

Our team of Physiotherapists is specially trained to evaluate your posture. We will make recommendations at the conclusion of your assessment so you can take control of your long-term structural health. By putting this knowledge into practice you can prevent the anatomical changes that can develop if poor posture is left uncorrected.

So set up an appointment with our physiotherapists today and have your posture assessed.
