Posture Problems Treatment Specialist

Posture may be more important than you think. It can predict quite a lot

  • How you present to the world – confident, happy and vital or timid, sad and whipped
  • It is a measure of your joint efficiency, balance and potential
  • Great posture puts your joints in neutral positions that work as designed
  • Joints working from good posture positions are well able to withstand the demands of life not not wear prematurely

How did I get posture problems?

No one told you much about good posture except “pull your shoulders back Jimmy”. What did that mean anyway?

Without any real education about posture we can readily develop poor and enduring habits such as

  • Head forward peering into our phone
  • Leaning back on chairs and couches
  • Hunched over computers and phones

Sometimes the cause of the posture has more biological reasons

  • Muscle weakness and stiffness
  • Poor core muscle control such as post pregnancy or cesarean section
  • Adolescent young women

How can posture problems present?

The most common presentations of poor posture

  • Rounded shoulders
  • Increased thoracic curve (hunchback)
  • Forward Head Posture
  • Forward Pelvic Tilt

All of these will cause acute problems including joint pain, tight muscles and poor flexibility. In turn this leads to a multitude of concerns including fatigue, distraction through pain and limitations of body capacity.

It’s well worth doing something about it. The earlier the better.

How Chiropractic and Myotherapy can help you

  1. Examination

    The first and most important step is to evaluate if we can help you. We are well trained to conduct a thorough history followed by an orthopaedic, neurological and physical examination.

    If you have any imagery studies already performed these are valuable. If you don’t these may be requested if the history and examination deems this important to your case.

  2. Provide a diagnosis

    At the end of our examination we will be able to provide you with an accurate diagnosis of what the problem is.

  3. Plan a Course of Action

    If after the examination we determine that we can help you we will plan a Course of Action to get you back to where you want to be. We will be able to give you

    a) A timeline of how long the process will take
    b) The techniques we recommend
    c) What you need to modify at home and work
    d) Give you any necessary exercises and advice that assist recovery
