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.
Our Osteopaths at Blackburn Osteopathy 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.
At Blackburn Osteopathy in Blackburn, our Osteopaths 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 technique.
- Core-stability exercises
- Ergonomic advice for your work and home environments
Osteopaths will also use hands on techniques to treat joint problems by specific joint mobilisation and manipulation
Benefits of Osteopathic Treatment
An assessment of your posture can screen for structural problems and muscle imbalances but more importantly, it improves your body awareness which is important for injury prevention. Being aware of good posture is the first step to breaking poor postural habits and reducing stress and strain on your body.
The team of Osteopaths at our Blackburn Osteopathy clinic 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 Osteopaths Today and have your posture assessed!
