Good posture is greatly important for your overall health and well-being. Having a good posture doesn’t only give you physical benefits such as reduced back, neck and shoulder pains but also it boosts up your energy and gives you greater confidence as you have the proper stance to conquer daily challenges.

Good posture can help in reducing the wear and tear of your joints especially your spine that will lead to stronger core and reduces the risk of fatigue and other common discomforts of having a bad posture.

How do you maintain proper posture?

You can use good posture either standing or while simply sitting. Make sure you relax and breathe normally. Always remember to keep these 3 reminders to keep your posture in proper form:

  • Keep your head above your shoulders
  • Hold shoulders above hips
  • Keep lower body in stable position

  • Tummy in – engage your core
  • Weight should be evenly balanced on your two feet
  • Knees should be straight

Bad posture could be what you have been practicing, and should be watched out. These are some of the things that you should avoid about having bad posture:

  • Rounded shoulders.
  • Potbelly
  • Bent knees when standing or walking
  • Head that either leans forward or backward
  • Having back pains
  • Body pains and muscle fatigue

How Manual Osteopathy Fixes Bad Posture?

Manual Osteopathy has a comprehensive assessment and specific approach in posture correction. It targets the underlying causes of misalignment to enhance your posture and balance. Initial evaluations will be done by licensed professionals like osteopaths such as:

  • Analyzing your posture to identify the areas of tension and where the misalignments are;
  • They will assess your coordination and balance that may be affecting your stability;
  • Examine your musculoskeletal condition to identify more causes of poor balance and posture

Osteopaths use different techniques in the treatment of posture correction. Some of the techniques are:

  • Soft Tissue Manipulation: where the employ hands on techniques to release tension from the muscles and improve soft tissues’ flexibility that helps restore alignment and balance of the body;
  • Myofascial Release: is a technique that releases fascial adhesions (fascia is a connective tissue that surrounds the muscle and organs that when released, it alleviates the pain and improves posture;
  • Joint Mobilization: is used through gentle movements to restore the optimal function of your joints that improve the range of motion and alleviate postural stress and promote better alignment;
  • Postural Education: is from the word itself, educating patients on proper posture ergonomics and providing guidance on maintaining good posture in overall daily activities to reinforce the effects of osteopathy treatment.
