Chronic Pain Relief Through Posture Therapy
What is Posture Therapy?
Posture therapy is a revolutionary method to stop chronic muscular pain. Often the pain you feel in your body is because you have moved away from your natural alignment and balance. If you address the rootcause of your pain, it will stop.
What Is Postural Alignment?
When the muscles of your body are balanced the major joints – the ankles, knees, hips and shoulders – are aligned vertically and horizontally as in the picture below. This natural alignment gives you strength, stability and allows you to function most efficiently - pain free.
What are some of the effects of postural misalignments?
When muscles are chronically overworked, misaligned or the wrong muscles are used by you to carry out daily functions, they are more likely to become injured and you might feel pain. Misaligned joints do not function properly leading to abnormal wear and tear, impingement, joint degeneration and pain.
How will Postural Alignment help?
Posture therapy helps bring your body back to natural alignment through simple but targeted stretching and strengthening exercises many of which are derived from Yoga. Unlike other therapies which only go after the site of pain, posture therapy targets the whole body - the postural misalignments and muscular imbalances. The aim is for a permanent solution and one that allows you to do the activities you love doing pain free. Once your body is in alignment even cartilage will grow back making hip and knee operations superfluous.
What happens during the first treatment session?
After an initial conversation I will take a series of pictures of you from different angles. This will be followed by a series of functional exercises testing your posture, balance and weight distribution. I will then sit down with you and explain your misalignments and design an exercise plan for you, which I will do with you during the session so you feel confident doing the exercises at home. You will also get sheets or links to videos explaining how to do the exercises.
