Posture plays a pivotal role in our overall well-being. In a world dominated by desk jobs and sedentary lifestyles, poor posture has become a widespread issue, leading to a range of health problems.
Slouching over screens, sitting for extended periods or holding awkward positions can lead to issues such as back pain, muscle stiffness and reduced flexibility. In this blog post, we’ll explore how the use of Physiotherapy can assist with improving posture, resulting in a healthier and more comfortable life.
Posture Assessment – To correctly treat bad posture, our team will first need to conduct a thorough postural assessment to identify any potential underlying issues. This will then form the basis for a treatment plan, specifically tailored for you.
Pain Management – Physiotherapy addresses the discomfort associated with poor posture through various techniques. From hands-on therapy, to gentle exercises and range of motion movements, physiotherapists can introduce methods that alleviate your daily pain and discomfort.
Flexibility and Range of Motion Exercises – A physiotherapist can prescribe exercises aimed at enhancing flexibility and addressing muscle tightness. This not only supports better posture but also contributes to overall physical resilience and a better range of motion in your upper back.
Improving your posture using physiotherapy is an approach that considers both the symptoms and the root causes. Small changes in your environment can significantly improve your posture resulting in reduced pain and discomfort. Our team also offer Workplace Ergonomic Assessments to identify any potential issues with your desk arrangement and provide you with alternatives and direction on how to achieve an optimal desk set up to better your posture, long-term.
