Change your movement; change your posture
There is always a physiological reason a person maintains a certain posture and moves a specific way.
Posture is movement at a specific point in time and involves input and output from many physiological systems. The best posture is one that moves often and is adaptable.
At Sommers Physical Therapy, we help you move and feel better based on your specific goals and this often results in more visually appealing posture.
Stiffness and stretching
Have you noticed that stretching only provides temporary relief? Stiffness often results from a systemic postural bias that may not resolve through stretching alone. Physical therapy can minimize your postural biases, restore movement throughout the entire body, and decrease that feeling of stiffness.
The complexity of pain
Pain can be the result of excessive or limited movement at the location of pain or elsewhere in the body. Restoring movement options can minimize repetitive tissue strain, relieve symptoms, reduce their reoccurrence, and improve performance!
Other stressors, such as sleep deprivation, insufficient nutrition, or lack of general movement, among several other factors, may also contribute to pain you are experiencing. We’ll work together to find the best comprehensive solutions to resolve your pain.
