Posture Exercises.There are many individual posture exercises that you can do to both improve your posture as well as alleviating and preventing any back pain.
There are also many posture-related exercise programmes that you may already be familiar with - Pilates, Yoga and the Alexander Technique being just three of the most popular.
Each of these exercise systems place a lot of emphasis on becoming more "posture aware" - helping you to go easily towards your ideal posture with the minimum amount of "work".
I myself am a Pilates Instuctor as well as Physiotherapist, so I normally provide my clients who experience posture-related back pain with an individualised programme of exercises. These exercises work on strengthening the core of the body.
As a bad posture ALWAYS undoes any exercise benefits very quickly, it is always necessary to first work with the client on achieving and maintaining good posture.
The main posture programmes that I advise are:
However, before you embark on any of the above posture-related exercise programmes, you can start to become more posture-aware while standing, sitting and lying down.
Posture awareness and the related exercises are really easy to carry out once they are taught correctly. I have found with my clients that they can change your symptoms in just minutes for many back and neck pain conditions.
