Postural Assessment

Postural Assessment: Understanding Your Alignment

Posture and pathology are intimately related. Posture can be the cause of an issue or can result from one. I use postural assessment to see the progress of your treatment as well as give you feedback as to how you are doing. If postural corrective exercises are necessary, you may be sent home with some to do in order to reinforce the treatment.

What are the benefits of postural assessment?

Postural assessment provides valuable insights into your alignment and musculoskeletal health. By evaluating your posture, we can identify imbalances, asymmetries, and areas of tension or weakness. This allows us to tailor your treatment plan to address specific issues and prevent future problems. Additionally, postural assessment serves as a tool to track progress and monitor the effectiveness of interventions over time.

Will I get corrective exercises?

If postural imbalances or dysfunctions are identified during the assessment, corrective exercises may be recommended as part of your treatment plan. These exercises are designed to address specific areas of weakness, tension, or misalignment, helping to improve posture, alleviate pain, and prevent injury. Your practitioner will provide guidance on performing the exercises correctly and incorporate them into your daily routine.

How often will I need to update my exercises?

The frequency of updating your corrective exercises will depend on your progress and individual needs. Initially, you may need more frequent adjustments to ensure proper form and effectiveness. As you become more proficient and your posture improves, updates may occur less frequently. Your practitioner will monitor your progress and make adjustments to your exercises as needed to continue supporting your goals and addressing any evolving issues.

How long should I expect it to take till I see results?

The timeline for seeing results from postural assessment and corrective exercises varies depending on individual factors such as the severity of imbalances, consistency in performing exercises, and adherence to treatment recommendations. Some people may notice improvements within a few weeks, while others may require several months of consistent effort. It’s important to remain patient and committed to your treatment plan, as gradual progress often leads to long-lasting results.
