Static, incorrect postures are one the biggest causes of musculoskeletal pain today.
How we hold our bodies and the frequency we move has a huge effect not only on local muscle and joint health, but also our health as a whole.
Posture must be considered in a dynamic and not a static way, muscles and joints must be allowed to experience full ranges of mobility, contraction and relaxation to maintain healthy function. This moment must occur throughout the day. Altered posture can also be secondary to injury, degeneration or pain, for example Arthritis in the hips or knee pain.
As there is such a wide variation in posture and related problems, your osteopath will be able to tailor exercises, movement advice and more to help you maintain optimal health for your personal physical requirements.
