Manage Back Pain

Posture Pictures.

I would like to share with you some photographs and pictures of posture types that I see when treating back pain in my Physiotherapy clinic.

Very few of us have a perfect posture. This is due to the type of posture we are born with - which combines with our personalities and the movement habits that we adopt over the years.

I myself had severe back pain, and it was through posture correction and back strengthening exercises that I eventually eliminated back pain from my life. Understanding your posture - and how you can change - it is the key to postural rehabilitation.

There are some aspects of posture that we cannot change with posture exercises and awareness as they are structural and irreversible. However, there are many changes you can make and once you have an understanding of your postural faults and habits then you ca take the correct steps to change them.

In my own practice, I focus on aspects of posture that we can change which may help you ease your back pain symptoms, and to prevent further episodes of back and neck pain that are related to poor postural habits. In Posture correction I show you how to go about actively changing your posture simply by learning how to adopt a more suitable posture for standing sitting (we even look at running posture). I show you how good posture-related back pain relief products can also both change and improve your posture.

The following are some simple posture pictures that show the comparison between good and bad posture habits when sitting and standing:

What may not be evident from the above pictures is how your posture can change from bad to good within minutes with good instruction from a Physiotherapist combined with your understanding and awareness of the changes required.

When I work with my own clients on posture correction, I then advise them to start specific posture exercises. As a qualified Pilates instructor, I favour Pilates exercises for this purpose. This helps them to strengthen the back and therefore maintain good posture. As a result, the effort of posture correction gets easier and more automatic over time.
