Your mum wasn’t nagging: posture IS important! Posture refers to how you hold your body upright against gravity as you stand, sit, or even lie down. It’s the foundation for movement, with correct posture enhancing the body’s ability to deal with stresses placed upon it.
Poor posture can quickly become a matter of habit, particularly for desk-bound workers. Over time, poor posture can cause fatigue and place strain on the muscles, ligaments and joints. Resulting in pain, impaired movement and sometimes injury.
At Collins Place Physio, we are passionate about your posture! We offer a computerised postural analysis, using cutting edge screening technology to determine which areas of your body are under the most strain.
This allows us to tailor an exercise and treatment plan to correct any imbalances, improve your posture and help reduce any pain you are experiencing.
