Postural Therapy

Posture alignment therapy is based on the premise that the human body has a functional standing anatomical position in which the ankles, knees, hips, and shoulders are stacked vertically and horizontally. If something appears out of alignment (one hip higher, feet externally rotated, forward head position) these deviations from the norm create muscular imbalances which in turn create inflexibility, reduced strength, improper gait, and ultimately pain and injury.

A practitioner certified in postural therapy seeks to undo the imbalances in the body through a series of strengthening exercises, stretches, and re-positioning exercises that treat postural misalignments. It is an effective, non-medical method for stopping chronic pain.
