Postural Education

Posture isn’t just something your parents will nag you about, your physical therapist will too!

Posture is key when it comes to identifying different types of musculoskeletal injuries. Some of these injuries include headaches, TMJ, whiplash, shoulder girdle injuries (rotator cuff, impingement, tendinitis, etc.), neck, thoracic or low back pain, scoliosis, and arthritis to name just a few. Whether you are sitting in a car or at a desk, standing in line at the movies, or sleeping at night, posture is crucial in order to prevent pain and dysfunction in the joints, the spine, the muscles, or other soft tissues structures.

A physical therapist can even come to your home or place of work to do an ergonomic assessment and provide effective and practical ergonomic improvements.

At Camelback Sports Therapy our staff uses a trained eye to analyze your posture along with verbal and tactile cuing to provide feedback to ensure you perform activities safely and correctly.  We believe treatment should consider the whole body.  Whatever you do outside of the clinic really matters, so postural education will certainly be a component of your treatment plan.

Even if you are not injured but simply want to be prepared for an upcoming trip or excursion, a new workout class or job, postural education is an invaluable tool to stay in the game.
