Poor posture is often the result of repetitive activities and prolonged positioning. This causes certain muscles to become long and weak, while others become short and tight. Poor posture not only affects how you look and how others perceive you, but it has a significant impact on your overall health and well-being.

Poor posture indicates that the spine is not well aligned meaning certain areas of the spine are under excessive load. Over time this can lead to back pain, neck pain, headaches, altered breathing, and many other symptoms.

Physiotherapy treatment can assist with symptoms relief, and through a detailed assessment, your therapist will identify and correct any factors that have led to poor posturing. Your therapist may also make ergonomic recommendations to ensure an optimal outcome and prevent recurrence.
