Your spine your priority
At Essendon Physio Group, we find many patients perform roles at work, school and home that forces them to adopt postures which put significant strain on their body's supporting muscles and ligaments. Tight muscles and stiff joints can result, making it uncomfortable for the patient and detrimental to their long term postural health.
Postural Assessments are beneficial to anyone experiencing either back or neck discomfort or tightness, the elderly with degenerative spinal changes, children who complain of back or neck pain during growth and development, office workers and anyone concerned about their spine.
A postural assessment examines the patient in their simulated environment and how their posture varies from the ideal. Treatment strategies are then targeted at prevention through:
- Corrective exercise
- Neuromuscular taping techniques
- Bracing techniques
- Alteration of the work station
- Alteration of postural habits
If you or a member of your family is experiencing postural problems, please contact us for an assessment.
