Addressing Poor posture

Specialist Corrective Exercise for Postural Pain and Discomfort

Poor posture results from habitually adopting a certain way of moving, standing and sitting. Over time our body develops postural sensitivities resulting in the need to sit or stand in a particular way, in order to avoid pain and discomfort. This causes muscle imbalances and tightness, resulting in reduced range of movement at the joints, muscle weakness and general day-to-day discomfort. Specialist corrective exercise restores the balance in your body.
