Postural assessment: Combat daily strain and find the source of pain

Your day to day life is taking a massive toll on your bodies. A postural assessment with the Injury and Pain Care clinic will identify problem areas. This will then act as a treatment roadmap, reducing general pain and helping you achieve better posture.

What do people have poor posture?

What might seem like the most simple of tasks that you carry out every day could be causing poor posture. Some of the most common things to affect posture are:

  • Poor monitor placement at work
  • Slouching at your desk
  • Habits like holding phone between neck and ear
  • Incorrect methods of lifting
  • How you stand at a sink
  • Long periods of driving

These repetitive actions might seem small but when carried out regularly, these movements shorten your muscles. Over time, this will damage your posture.

 

What is a postural assessment?

Damage has already likely been done to your posture. Our postural assessment will locate the source of this damage and how it’s affecting your movement. With this knowledge, we can then provide effective treatment at the source of the problem – not just the area of pain. This approach will ensure your recovery is far more effective.

Your first visit to the clinic includes an assessment as it is a key element of successful treatment.
