Workrelated postural strains are very common, and often involve muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints and nerves. Poor posture at work, whether one is sitting at a desk or involved in manual jobs, can be a major contributor to pain and discomfort.
Physiotherapy specialises in biomechanical assessment to determine postural deficiencies, muscle imbalance, and dysfunction. Treatment is focused on improving posture through specific training, education and exercise, manual therapy, and ergonomic assessment.
Manual physical therapy, in addition to other physiotherapy modalities such as electrotherapy, heat/cold, exercise prescription, and education, are all used to address and improve physical function. Each treatment plan is an alliance between patient and therapist, and is specifically customized for your condition.
