Posture correction is one of the first things many people will think of when they think physiotherapy. Every person moves in their own distinctive way and has their own natural curves – there is a different posture for each person. “Normal” posture and movement therefore can fall within a realm of different postures and movement patterns.

Posture Correction Physiotherapy At Sydney Physio Clinic

At Sydney Physio Clinic, what we consider “poor posture” is habitual movement or positioning that causes unnecessary strain on the body. As we get older we can develop bad habits. And when these bad habits and postures are repeated over time, or repetitively, under load symptoms can develop as a result. Common symptoms can include back painheadaches and fatigue, as well as body aches and pains. Posture correction physiotherapy involves training your body to improve the way you sit, stand, walk and lie. Ultimately, posture correction is training your body to move and support yourself in positions where the least possible strain is placed on its supporting tissues. “Good Posture” can help to prevent fatigue, because muscles are being used more efficiently. And efficiency can assist in preventing strain and overuse conditions.

Some of the treatment techniques used in posture correction physiotherapy may include: preventative or assistive taping techniquessupportive bracing, muscular strengthening exercises and training. Along with joint and soft tissue stretching and mobility exercises, targeted joint and soft tissue manual techniques. As well as postural and movement retraining exercises.
