Postural Re-education

The specialist physiotherapists at Sports and Spinal Physio are highly qualified in assessing and treating postural conditions which can lead to pain and a decline in quality of life. Bad posture can result in other problems such as back pain, shoulder impingements, headaches and hip joint pain.

Our physiotherapists will initially conduct a thorough assessment to gage the underlying issue of what is causing the incorrect posture. Following this assessment and the information provided by you of contributing factors such as occupation, driving positioning then evidence based practice treatments can be performed to help realign your posture in relation to the activities that are performed by yourself.

Postural Re-Education is used based on the principle of correct alignment, biomechanics and neuromuscular coordination. Postural re-education isn't just for those that display problems with their posture but other relating musculoskeletal conditions that are a contributing factor in to bad posture alignment.

Our physiotherapists understand that everybody presents differently with their own signs and symptoms so treatments plans are tailor made based on the individual and presenting condition. Our physiotherapist will not just concentrate on the posture but will use holistic treatment modalities so that long lasting results are made.
