Postural Problems Treatment
Discover a Healthier, Pain-Free You
In today’s fast-paced world, perfect posture seems like an elusive goal. Many of us find ourselves slouched at our desks, engrossed in screens, or adopting slouched stances because it feels more comfortable. The modern technological age has ushered in a sedentary lifestyle, characterized by extended periods of sitting, heavy reliance on gadgets, cars, mobiles, and computers.
This trend starts early, with children becoming adept at using iPads from a young age. It’s clear that our current way of living is not in harmony with our natural design. This lifestyle takes a toll not only on our skeletal and muscular systems but also on our cardiovascular health, respiratory function, digestion, and even our emotional well-being.
Thankfully, some companies are beginning to acknowledge the importance of movement and are introducing initiatives like sit-stand desks to encourage employees to be more active. However, there is still much work to be done to promote overall fitness and health.
Postural treatment Worthing, Sussex
Our bodies have an “ideal” centre of gravity, a balanced state that allows our joints to maintain their proper alignment. Prolonged periods away from this ideal centre of gravity force our joints out of alignment, putting undue stress on the soft tissues and muscles surrounding them. Instead of the bony part of the spine designed to bear the load, it’s the soft tissues and muscles that are forced to take on this burden.
This imbalance in the muscular system can result in some muscles working excessively while others remain underutilized, leading to fatigue, pain, and stiffness.
