Posture is responsible for the vast majority of desk related aches and pains, as well as being a huge contributor to movement dysfunctions and repetitive strain injuries.
Have you always wanted to improve your posture but don’t know where to begin?
Posture is responsible for the vast majority of desk related aches and pains, as well as being a huge contributor to movement dysfunctions and repetitive strain injuries. The new ‘normal’ posture is hunched and rounded in the upper back/shoulders and extended at the lower back, this places a huge strain on the body and can easily lead to overuse injuries.
We use our state of the art posture screening technology to guide corrective exercises for conditions such as:
- Dowajers Hump
- ‘Forward head’ or ‘Poke neck’ posture
- Kyphotic or rounded back posture
- Protracted or rounded shoulders posture
- Lordotic (increased lower back or neck curve)posture
HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you have been suffering from postural aches and pains, or simply want to correct any faults you might have developed, then a posture screen is definitely for you. The process involves five steps:
- Pre-assessment questionnaire and postural images (if online)
- Static 4-view posture analysis report
- 1:1 consultation with a specialist physiotherapist (in clinic or online)
- Bespoke video home exercise programme
- Review consultation discussed and arranged if required (charged separately)
Online Posture Screen
Once you’ve booked an appointment we’ll send our PDF guide outlining what we’ll need before the assessment.
At least 24 hours before the assessment we’ll need your images (as specified in the PDF guide), which we will process through our state of the art posture screening software. This will produce a detailed report that we’ll review with you during the session. We also use this report to guide any movement assessments that we may need to explore during the session. Before compiling the results and producing a detailed corrective exercise programme on our rehabilitation application.
Online appointments will take place via zoom with one of our experienced Physiotherapists. The zoom link will be available on the booking confirmation email.
In-clinic Posture Screen
If you’re able to attend face to face for the screening session then we often do not require you to send images prior to the session, as our software can be used with augmented reality. This means we can analyse your posture in real-time on the day of your session.
For both online and in-clinic posture screening we recommend a follow-up screening at around 8 weeks. Prior to this session we will require new images to be taken so we can process them through the software to identify the progress you’ve made. This can be booked with your therapist during the screening session and will be charged at our usual physiotherapy follow-up charge.
