Postural Correction Therapy for Pain Relief
Posture is a term that refers to the position we maintain our bodies while standing, lying down, or sitting. A good or healthy posture involves correct body part alignment to resist gravity with the appropriate muscle tension level. Poor alignment will increase the strain on your muscle and joints. The strain can lead to various issues, including back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, and more.
A good posture not only reduces pain and injury, but it also projects confidence, makes you feel energetic, and look great. Your posture arises from life-long habits. Therefore, it can take some time to correct your posture. Various factors can affect your posture. For example, wearing heels, pregnancy, lifting heavy objects, obesity, and more.
Postural correction involves changing habits and teaching your body to appropriate motor patterns. It would help get posture correction therapy from a chiropractic center like Next Generation Chiropractic & Wellness, LLC in Florida for more effective posture correction therapy.
What Is Postural Correction Therapy?
Postural correction therapy is the treatment approach where a physiotherapist helps you to correct your posture. The first step of postural correction therapy is a postural assessment to identify poor postural habits and how you can correct them. Your physiotherapist identifies how your current posture affects your body and will recommend appropriate posture correction techniques like a massage. Moreover, a study published in the Journal of Physical Therapy Science shows that postural correction exercises can alleviate back pain and shoulder pain. We will also help you to develop consciousness of your habits that lead to poor posture.
If you do not have a severe case of poor posture, we focus on improving your balance, strengthening your muscles, and correcting how you stand, sit, and walk. In some cases, we could recommend a support device or brace that will help you to correct your posture.
