Postural Restoration

Many Americans spend the majority of their day sitting down at a desk or looking at a computer screen. Often without realizing it, our shoulders slump and we tend to slouch forward. Over time, poor posture can contribute to pain and tightness in the back and neck area, making it difficult to accomplish daily functions.

Postural Restoration is a physical therapy technique that focuses on treating common postural patterns found in the human body. This integrative and non-invasive approach utilizes specific exercises, posture recommendations and manual techniques to treat the different musculoskeletal problems. Our posture affects the entire Central Nervous System (CNS), which includes the muscle, vision, vestibular (balance) and respiratory (breathing) systems. Restoring good posture can improve breathing, alleviate pain and prevent degeneration.

Our expert physical therapists at XYZ Physical Therapy have extensive training in posture evaluation. After assessing the biomechanics, your therapist will educate you on your posture and different muscle imbalances. Then they will use a series of manual techniques and exercise to help correct your poor posture and retrain the muscles to get you back to pain-free living. Call today to speak with an expert!
