Spinal and Postural Correction
Your posture and alignment often have a significant part to play in the underlying cause of symptoms. Staggering statistics like the fact that your head weighs 5kg in the right position on your body, but 14kg just 1 inch further forward than it should be can help explain just what a major impact posture and alignment can have. We have very effective techniques to assess your posture, alignments and movement and will regularly use specialist iPad video analysis software to make sure you completely understand the issues and the reasons why we might decide to include postural realignment as part of your treatment.
Your therapist is likely to use a variety of ‘hands on’ techniques to help correct any issues found. Techniques may include mobilisation, manipulation and muscle energy techniques (MET). Personal exercise programs will also help to maximise and prolong any benefits gained from the ‘hands on’ treatment. At The Back and Body Clinic, we design a treatment programme specifically for your needs, aiming to give you the optimum posture, as well as reduce your pain for the long term.
