Your mum wasn’t nagging—posture IS important! Referring to how you hold your body upright against gravity as you stand, sit, or even lie down, posture is the foundation for movement. While correct posture enhances the body’s ability to deal with stresses placed upon it, poor posture inhibits it.
As Melbourne CBD physios we see firsthand how 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. This can in turn result in pain, impaired movement and sometimes injury.
At The Alignment Studio, we are passionate about your posture! We offer a comprehensive posture assessment using cutting-edge screening technology. This postural analysis allows us to determine which areas of your body are under the most strain. With this information, we can tailor an exercise and treatment plan to correct any imbalances, improve your posture and help reduce any pain you are experiencing.
