Effects of Bad Posture

Poor posture places undue stress on your spine and surrounding structures and over time this extra stress can begin to break down spinal discs and cause joint instability.

Degenerative joint disease of the spine can lead to pain, loss of movement and nerve damage. Making it even more critical to detect potential posture problems earlier rather than later and treat the root cause of the issue. For many people, by the time they seek treatment it’s a lot harder to correct and symptoms have compounded.

Other impacts of poor posture include:

  • Rounded shoulders
  • Back pain
  • Spinal Dysfunction

Benefits of Posture Analysis

Our posture assessments are beneficial for just about everyone including, teenagers, office workers, those who are working from home more, and manual labourers.

They provide a numerical depiction of the stress your posture is placing on your spine and surrounding structures.

Our specific posture assessments will be able to:

  • Uncover the extent of your unique imbalance.
  • Provide a visual representation of the stresses being placed on your muscles, ligaments and joints.
  • Determine what needs to be done to improve your movement and reduce any pain you are experiencing.

What to Expect

During a posture analysis we will conduct a thorough assessment of the patients sitting and standing posture, including important objective measurements of range-of-movement and strength.

We use state of the art posture assessment software to take digital photographs, to display where your centre of mass and centre of gravity are aligned. We use these images – and the other data collected – to measure improvements over time.
