Posture is the way in which somebody holds his or her body. Poor posture can often be the root cause of many aches and pains. Postural assessment and correction often forms a component of your treatment. Your therapist will observe the way you sit or stand and will make suggestions and give you hints and tips on how best to correct your posture to minimise your pain and prevent recurrence in the future.
Poor outcomes following treatment can be due to failure to change poor posture, so it is very important that you follow any postural advice given if you wish to see good long term gains.
