Service Posture

MTM > Services > Posture

If you are able to hold and find yourself in correct spinal alignment, it puts less cause on to your spine and allows the surrounding muscles to work most effectively. A straight line can be drawn from just below the ear, shoulder, third lumbar vertebrae, hip and the front of the ankle to be able to identify the ideal alignment of your posture.

Your body is unbalanced if you have poor posture. Different postures can cause more pressure on the spine and requires different muscles to be in use and overwork to be able to hold that position.

Your posture is crucial to optimal physical function. The three main types of bad posture are flat back, kyphosis/lordosis and sway back. Signs of poor posture include forward head, slouching and rolling forward of shoulder and increased curve in the lower back.


At MTM Physiotherapy Warwick, our Exercise Physiotherapists are trained to assess posture and provide appropriate exercise and educate you to ensure you make postural improvements.
