Posture assessment & Training

“Good posture is effortless”

Posture is the natural position in which you hold your body upright against gravity. Good posture can involve training your body to stand, walk, sit and lie in positions where the least strain is placed on the supporting bone structure.

  • Read More

    Proper posture:
    Keeps bones and joints in the correct alignment so that muscles are being used properly.
    Helps decrease the abnormal wearing of joint surfaces that could result in arthritis.
    Decreases the stress on the ligaments holding the joints of the spine together.
    Prevents the spine from becoming fixed in abnormal positions.
    Prevents fatigue because muscles are being used more efficiently, allowing the body to use less energy.
    Prevents strain or overuse problems.
    Prevents backache and muscular pain.
    Contributes to a good appearance and positive outlook.
    It takes only five minutes a day for 30 days to retrain a postural habit!
