Musculoskeletal & Postural Restoration
Postural restoration is an area of physical therapy treatment that encompasses the entire body. The focus of the treatment is identifying and correcting common postural patterns found in the human body.
All humans have asymmetry in their posture and that influences the way we sit, stand, walk and even breathe. This asymmetry promotes our body to fall into movement patterns the negatively influence muscle function and structural alignment. By addressing the underlying postural deficits, physical therapists can more effectively treat our patients and at the same time teach them how to prevent further injury. The process starts with a thorough postural assessment. Re-positioning activities are prescribed to restore neutral alignment to the musculoskeletal system. Once improved alignment is achieved, movement patterns are practiced to reinforce correct positioning and optimal loading of the body.
