Our Postural Assessments provide a detailed description of your overall posture and any limitations your body has in regard to movement and the way it functions.
Your body is designed to move and function in a certain way, and the way you use your body can cause your posture to adapt and compensate. This may cause your muscles to become over or under used leading to imbalances to the way you move and function. Treatments are then designed around addressing any limitations or restrictions found which can enable your body to move more freely and provide relief for any of your aches, pains and stiffness.
Our postural assessment can be provided for the following
