How do you maintain your posture throughout the day? Do you catch yourself slouching frequently? Do the last few school hours or workdays leave you hunched over and ready to leave? If you have pain, especially in the neck or back, poor posture can be responsible. Fortunately, physical therapy can improve your posture.

Why do I have poor posture?

There is nothing wrong with bad posture – very few have perfect posture, and most tend to behave in one way or another. We are so busy with our work that we forget to think about where our body is positioned.


Laziness and inequality at work are not the results of bad posture; on the contrary, it is often associated with the physical weakness of our body. We sink and fall when we feel tired because our body is (literally) tired of holding us. 


Poor posture leads to excessive strain on your joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It also relaxes the core muscles needed to keep you in shape and healthy. Posture changes occur over time, and most people ignore them until they begin to notice pain.


Even if you exercise regularly, some weak muscles you do not even realize can promote your posture. A muscle in your shoulders, back, abdomen, buttocks and pelvis play an essential role in your posture. If even one of these is weak, your core will be affected, and your posture may suffer.


Your body is designed to align perfectly, allow your muscles to move, breathe air and circulation. If bad posture continues, it can lead to chronic illness in old age.


Fix Bad Posture with physical therapy:

Physiotherapy treatment is an excellent way to restore normal posture. Our physical therapists are experts in the movement and are an excellent resource for achieving your success goals. They will aid you in the improvement of your balance, stability, flexibility, and mobility, all of which will positively fix your bad posture.


At the initial evaluation, your doctor will perform functional tests to identify weak areas of the body that cause back pain. They will then work out a personalized treatment plan that suits your needs.


The treatment plan usually includes manual therapy and exercises aimed at relieving pain and restoring normal function. Depending on your needs, you can add additional treatments such as ice and heat therapy, ultrasound or electrical stimulation. Your treatment plan focuses on improving your posture, increasing your strength and (most importantly) relieving pain.
