Posture can be considered our bodies ability to withstand gravity.

Together with technique, posture is involved with

  • sitting
  • standing
  • walking
  • music
  • computer use and a wide range of occupations
  • many sports

We all have the ability to effectively resist the load gravity places upon us however very few of us have the body awareness to do this naturally.

Over time, the effect of inefficiently resisting the load gravity places on our bodies results in tissue reaching its irritation threshold, then pain or injury.

Pain can build up gradually over time or commence so suddenly so we do not quickly relate it to a process that has been occurring over a long period. The onset of these pain problems is often not recognised by health professionals.

Along with joint and soft tissue and joint mobilisation, awareness of effective body loading and efficient movement techniques must be learned to effectively overcome posture-related issues.
