Good posture is very important for good health, it can avoid unnecessary stress to the joints and soft tissues which can lead to pain, stiffness, and loss of function. It is vital to have good postural awareness and avoid poor postural habits.

Posture education will include an evaluation of sitting and standing posture.  This will assist in determining what types of treatment intervention and education are appropriate. Posture education may also include ergonomic advice concerning desk height, keyboard type and position, and chair type and adjustments.  This will help set the patient up for the most efficient use of their bodies during activities at work and any activity requiring sitting. Symptoms of poor posture include posture-related pain and stiffness, muscle aches, fatigue etc. We aim at three different areas to address postural issues

  • Postural observation/ correction
  • Postural advice
  • Specifically tailored exercise program to address the problem.
