    Posture Alignment
    Hi
    We all have a personal, family and genetically related postural trends. Some people stand and sit tall without effort but others are easily affected by gravity, bad habits and poor furniture. People with hypermobile or lax ligament joints are generally more affected.

    Most of us do not realise how badly we stand and sit until a part of our body is injured or just decides to protest about the extra stress it is under.

    As a physiotherapist, my expertise is in analysing whether your posture is contributing to your pain and functional problems (or it may just trouble you from the appearance point of view) then helping you to improve it.

    There is no magic “program” except one that is individually targeted at your particular needs.

    I asume that there must be a technique known as “postural alignment therapy”, however the truth of the matter is that any treatment directed at posture is not a one size fits all approach. As Helen noted, there are multiple reasons for a deterioration in posture; from genetic predisposition to ergonomics. 

    In 2012, the Chiropractors Association  of Australia lead a public health campaign on spinal health and posture.
